Farraday’s Cage are Perth’s newest songwriting duo with raw talent and unique, blues-soul inspired tunes that are making audiences across WA weak at the knees.
Farraday Tween and Calvin Bennett create a pure and expressive sound with such distinct direction it feels as though they are guided by the generations of jazz prodigies and masters of soul that have come before them. Farraday’s heart-melting vocals echo the husky, mellow tones of Norah Jones and fit seamlessly into Calvin’s masterful and restrained guitar, the likes of which haven’t been heard since John Mayer stunned the world. Their powerful original tracks and such honest performances show skill and emotion far beyond their years.
Farraday and Calvin 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. 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 are a breath of fresh air in the Australian music industry.
