"London born pianist & vocalist BENET McLEAN has been involved in music since the age of 3! He began on violin, (a quarter-sized model of course!), & whilst training to become potentially a concert violinist, he also soon became interested in other forms of music such as jazz, bebop and a young genre rising under the name of Hip-hop. Soon teaching himself other instruments such as guitar, piano, electric bass, alto saxophone, as well as of course singing & composing, a musical 'melting-pot' began to 'cook'!"A list of artists Benet has played, toured & worked with internationally includes OMAR, YEHUDI MENUHIN, DENNIS ROLLINS, SIR SIMON RATTLE, DAVE O'HIGGINS, TY, STEVE WILLIAMSON, CARLEEN ANDERSON, TOMMY SMITH, CLEVELAND WATKISS, YELLOW STATION BLUE, PHILLIP BENT, ORPHY ROBINSON, ROACHFORD, MAXI JAZZ (Faithless), LOOSE TUBES, DON LUSHER, among others. "Fast-rising young pianist BENET McLEAN has a piano technique that seems to bring Art Tatum's music into the 21st century, drawing on classical music, post bop, hip-hop & beyond." -THE GUARDIAN
