BMI Indie Spotlight: Annika Bennett

Posted in News on February 22, 2022

Annika Bennett is a Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer who honed her sound in the New York and Nashville DIY scenes. Her solo-written debut project fused pop, country, and indie melodic sounds that took inspiration from McCartney-esque classic rock, and her willingness to put words to complicated feelings made the project’s title, Only Emotion, all the more apt. Following the success of the EP, she embarked on a 10-week tour with Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness, later releasing her first single of 2022, “Every Color of the Rainbow,” and playing a sold-out LA show in support of Ashley Kutcher. Bennett’s next EP is set to release this spring and will be co-produced by Jonah Shy, who has worked with Dermot Kennedy, Camila Cabello, and FLETCHER. She recently opened for Penny & Sparrow at SXSW and continues building her resume as a songwriter, having written for gnash, bulow, Goody Grace, Ashley Kutcher, Walk Off the Earth, Lexi Jayde, Catie Turner, Josh Kerr, Katelyn Tarver, Cigarettes After Sex, Jordy Searcy, and more.
