by BWW News Desk - Jun 6, 2017

You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they've had and how many millions of albums they've sold.

But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.

BWW Review: Antonia Bennett Proves She's a Force to Be Reckoned With In Cafe Carlyle DebutBWW Review: Antonia Bennett Proves She's a Force to Be Reckoned With In Cafe Carlyle Debut
by Karis Rogerson - May 31, 2017

If you're not already familiar with Antonia Bennett, her current Cafe Carlyle run and venue debut are quite the introduction. As the daughter of a famous father, Bennett grew up surrounded by quality music and performers, and it was at an early age that she began adding her own voice to the mix. For 10 years she performed with Tony Bennett as his opening act, and she is featured on his album A SWINGIN' CHRISTMAS in a duet between the father and daughter. But the truth is that the name Antonia Bennett rings familiar with fewer people than her father's. The concrete reason for this has some room for debate--- perhaps it's just that music-listening culture has changed, or maybe it's because she's younger and hasn't performed as much in a solo setting. The reason doesn't matter so much as the fact that Antonia Bennett is a performer to watch, and her Cafe Carlyle performances are proof of that. (more...)
