CELEBRATED COUNTRY ARTIST
RELEASES 90’S INSPIRED NEW SINGLE
PRODUCED BY MULTIPLE CCMA AND CMAO PRODUCER OF THE YEAR WINNER
APRIL 2021 (Toronto, ON) – Teaming up with multiple CCMA and CMAO Canadian Country Producer of the Year, Jeff Dalziel (who has worked with Washboard Union, David Boyd Janes, Brett Kissel, Meghan Patrick, Nice Horse, and Dan Davidson to name a few), Jason Benoit takes on a new direction with the release “A Lot About A Little”, a song that draws on inspiration from beloved 90’s country music. Following a year where many artists have had to find new ways of connecting with fans and suddenly finding themselves with more time, Jason had some soul-searching moments where he wanted to be true to the music he loved. Obsessed with the 90’s Country music he grew up on and that good old honkytonk feel, Jason finally decided to follow that passion and record a single with influences from his favourite records.
Jason and his team reached out to Jeff whom they felt would be the perfect fit for this project. Jason and Jeff previously worked together on one of Jason’s recent singles, the Conway Twitty cover “Slow Hand” which has now amassed over 1.2 million streams. Upon discussing the project Jeff immediately knew the direction in which Jason was feeling. Jeff reached out to good friend and country artist Aaron Goodvin who had written the perfect song that Jason was looking for. As soon as the team heard the demo version of the song, a session was booked with world-class band members from the Jeff Dalziel team and “A Lot About A Little” was born. The song is written by singer/songwriter, Aaron Goodvin (Written for Luke Bryan and Johnny Reid), Greg Bates (written for Montgomery Gentry, Terri Clark and the Nashville TV Show) and Faren Rachels.
''Jason Benoit continues to prove himself as an artist to watch in Canadian country,'' says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief at NOW and THEN Magazine and host for the International Music's Journey Podcast. Benoit has discovered a unique sound that he can identify with. This new music is exactly what he has always been looking for with his new single A Lot About A Little. Benoit has opened himself up to a whole new level in his artistry working with Jeff Dalziel. Benoit spoke about working on his vocal range and the exercises that Jeff would have him do. It is pretty cool. The end result is magic. I believe Jason is going to be releasing a whole new side of himself with his songs set to release this year. The fans are absolutely going to love them.''
''I feel now more than ever that I can release the music I always wanted to make,'' says Benoit. ''I am not making music for the hit record anymore. I am making music that I really resonate with personally. I am more grounded today than I have ever felt in the direction I want my music to go and it feels great to be putting out the songs that I hope my fans want to hear. I knew the moment I heard A Lot About A Little that it was exactly the kind of song that I have been searching for and waiting to record. It was perfect for me. What Jeff did with that song and what he did helping me to hit notes that I just didn't know I was capable of helped me to feel more confident than ever before. I have several songs that I am ready to record that I am really proud of. I am hoping to work with Jeff Dalziel on these ones as well.''
''Benoit is one of those rare artists you meet that just sticks to your heart,'' says Cyr. ''I am really excited about Benoit and this new junction in the road that he is taking. He has hit that sound and music that is going to take him far. Benoit is going to keep on climbing the charts with this kind of music.''
