Antonia Bennett Antonia Bennett

The music, at the same time contemporary and timeless, gives wing to a unique voice--sultry, yet warm and familiar like a classic beauty dancing happily in her favorite party dress. This voice is slightly sassy, completely classy, part vixen. This voice belongs to Antonia Bennett.

Antonia is a singer, who like her legendary father Tony, has always known how to make a tune her own. This summer and fall, Antonia is happy to be touring some of the best venues and events across Europe and the United States. From London’s Royal Albert Hall, iTunes Festival UK, Umbria Jazz Festival (Italy), Istanbul Turkey, Ontario Canada, Gibson Amphitheatre (Los Angeles) to name a few.

With Antonia there is a fresh yet classic quality that leaves you feeling like you are being “let in on a secret.” And that secret is…

Antonia is magnificent, a true star. Her bloodline notwithstanding, this fiery redhead is a deeply gifted singer, a songwriter with much to say, and a playfully sexy/charismatic icon-in-waiting. She effortlessly has a deep knowledge of the classics and at the same time is working in collaboration with famed songwriter/producer Holly Knight.

All supporting the Mesa Blue Moon / Fontana / Universal Music release of her Jazz EP, which includes such songs as “Soon,” “Putting On The Ritz,” “The Thrill Is Gone,” “I Fall To Pieces, “I Wish I Were In Love Again,” and “Love Is A Battlefield.” The EP is produced by Holly Knight and features piano and arrangements by Grammy Nominated Larry Goldings (James Taylor, Al Jarreau, Norah Jones, John Mayer, David Sanborn).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
