Eric Benoit’s second album Heartrender takes a step into a new direction with even more energy than his previous album. Benoit is inspired by a variety of different genres such as: indie folk-rock, dance music, and rock. Benoit is unapologetic when presenting his listeners with raw and controversial subject matter.
With the January 26th release of his sophomore album, Heartrender, he tears into sex, love, and the body, laughing at the absurdity of it all just to keep from breaking apart. Telling the story of a ruinous, short-lived relationship, the album documents his attempt to come to terms with sexual trauma.
Benoit’s musical project began in the summer of 2014 with his live debut as Artist of the Month at The Bitter End Singer-Songwriter Series (NYC). Two years later, he released his debut album, College. Never shy about approaching difficult topics, he told a story of self-harm, a peer’s suicide, and the mental toll of dealing with the unique stresses of the American college campus. In Heartrender’s seven slow-burning tracks, Benoit takes a leap forward with a newly energized sound. While maintaining the immersive cinematic style of his debut LP, he draws new inspiration from a wide range of styles, including experimental dance music, indie folk-rock, and alternative singer-songwriter.
