It is the blending of 80's Metal, Commercial Top 40 Pop with Rock n’ Roll that creates the sound that DeBenedetta brings to you our fans.

Barry Bennedetta (The Reader’s Digest version):

In 1984 Barry Bennedetta worked with Pete Way as the guitarist for the British Rock Band WAYSTED. 1985-1986 he worked with Tom Keifer / Cinderella’s front man as a lead guitarist on "Back Home Again", "Nothin' for Nothin'" and "Push, Push" on Cinderella’s Debut album “Night Songs”. Selling over 3.5 million copies upon its release Barry earned Gold and a Multi-Platinum awards for his contribution to the band’s successful debut.

Years later Barry released a Christian album with Rock Solid Talent Entertainment and Phil Taylor. While working with Phil on that project Barry asked Phil to help him to find a new vocalist for his next album. Phil introduced Barry to Shimmer Johnson as a possible vocalist and the rest is history.

Shimmer came in ready and paid for the studio time to record the album “SHADOWS” at Catalyst Production Edmonton. The album took them less than 3 months to record. They work so well together that everything fell into place and the final result is music that is so amazing!

Barry and Shimmer released the album “SHADOWS” independently. You can find the album on SOUNDCLICK and BANDCAMP as well as on all online stores May 1, 2020.
