From Grey Lynn in Auckland via the same studio that unearthed talents including Lorde and Broods, 18 year-old Bene has released Soaked – the follow up to debut single Tough Guy. Following the release of this electric RnB jam, Bene has played sold out shows and support slots for Lily Allen, Rufus Du Sol and Winston Surfshirt.

Discovered from a bunch of self-recorded Soundcloud covers that showcased her mesmerising vocal delivery, Bene quickly got the attention of producer Josh Fountain of NZ group Leisure. Since then Bene has been recording with him at Golden Age creating a bunch more tasty tracks for release.
