Welsh-Jamaican singer, Dionne Bennett is internationally known for her unique vocals, which draw influence from Afroculture music. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Dionne Bennett demands the absolute attention of the room with her powerhouse vocals. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

She blends an invigorating mix of a deep, soulful, lower range with a colourful, bold, belt. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Time passes unnoticed as she weaves a story through lyrics and melody brought to life by her electrifying stage presence.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Joined by an all-star band of Royal Welsh College instrumentalists and vocalists who have worked together with Dionne through a series of workshops, they bring their own take on 90s R&B, funk, Neo-soul, and blues to the mix. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
