I’m David Bennett, Guitarist/Songwriter/Singer/Producer for my own musical outlet that I call “White Island”. I am a one-man band, covering all aspects of the creative process including song writing, all performance and design, right down to the production and engineering of my debut album. I am a completely intuitive musician and have never received a music lesson in my life, which I feel assists in imparting a genuine and natural feel to my music. My music is created in my own studio, which I call “Siamese Sound”.
I’ve been playing guitar for over 21 years, however this is my first creative output, which has been assisted by today's technology and my own DIY (do it yourself) attitude.
“Songs Of Love, Hate, Hope & Despair” is the first album by White Island.
The music has a modern rock sound, with highly emotional, personal lyrics, catchy choruses, and technically advanced lead guitar playing. The music comes from my heart and mind, and is the most natural expression of how I am feeling and what I want to create. I have not created this music with an audience in mind, although I do have a strong desire to touch people through my songs and playing.
I live in Wellington, New Zealand. When I first started playing, I played locally in bands, but I found frustration in finding musicians who’s commitment and desire equaled that of my own. For the past number of years I have been isolated in my studio, learning the skills I needed to make my music reality. With technology where it is today, and the internet being the powerful tool it is, I’m confidant that a one person musical act can reach a significant audience, and do so with power, clarity and integrity!
