Bio

Perth teens Farraday Tween and Calvin Bennett have been performing as Farraday’s Cage since 2016, creating an impressive catalogue of original music. Already seasoned performers, their mix of soulful vocals and skilful instrumentation make them a compelling live act. In March 2019, they won the Nannup Music Festival Emerging Artists Award for 2019. Their song ‘Meaning of Life’ won the 2017 WAM Song of the Year in the Schools category and the ’The Fire Inside’ won the same award in 2018, also earning them a nomination in the Blues & Roots category. They again scored noms in the 2019 WAM Song of the Year for 'Lifeline' in the schools category and 'In Starlight' in Blues & Roots. Their sound straddles blues, pop and neo-soul.

Strong song, you two. Like the gradual build up and the big vocal atop those textures.
