SEA + AIR are
Daniel Benjamin (Vocals, Concerto Guitar, Drums, Cymbals, Bells) &
Eleni (Vocals, Harpsichord, Organ Bass Pedal, Drums)
A Greek folklore dancer who had to sing secretly when she was a kid and a German composer who can’t read music?
A harpsichordist with fear of flying and a guitarist who is scared of the sea?
Or a bassist who plays her instrument with her feet and a drummer who would’ve rather stayed in his punk band?
SEA + AIR is all of this.
After 10 years of trying, writing, recording and playing over 1200 concerts all over the world as “Daniel Benjamin” the married couple experienced a key moment in summer 2010:
Supporting Whitney Houston on her European tour, they managed to silence huge arenas only with their two voices, realising that they had suddenly reached the goal of touching a mainstream audience by simply being who they are.
SEA + AIR have toured as support for artists like Sufjan Stevens, White Stripes, Jose Gonzalez, The Flaming Lips, The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, Woven Hand, John Grant and The Divine Comedy.
