Benedict is the new musical alter ego of Martijn Smits. His debut album will be released early 2020. The album - quiet a personal story - feels dark and melancholic with occasional glimmers of hope. Smits’ often nearly mumbling voice layers the lyrics over an old piano accompanied by some gracefully arranged horn and string arrangements. Expect some steady drums, painting like lyrics and deep and sometimes hectic synthesizers.
