The Internet
The Internet
One of the crucial figures in the 2010s Los Angeles music scene, Sydney Bennett -- Syd for short -- began as an engineer and eventually became known more as the front-person of soul-rooted alternative R&B band the Internet. During her teenage years, Bennett built a home studio, developed her engineering skills, and began producing material for a host of Odd Future and related projects. As Bennett continued to be a go-to OF collaborator -- she recorded and mixed Tyler, the Creator's gold single "Yonkers," for instance -- she established the Internet, who released an album every other year from 2011 through 2015. The last of the band's first three full-lengths, Ego Death, was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Urban Contemporary Album. While Bennett had used the Internet as a way to tap into the understated sides of neo-soul inspirations such as Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, her uniquely frank songwriting set her apart. In 2017, she released her first solo album, Fin, which drew from mid- to late-'90s recordings by the likes of Brandy and Aaliyah. Like the Internet output, it was released through major-label Columbia.

Chris Smith was born in Minneapolis, MN. Started on violin and later chose the upright bass. In high school he started playing electric bass in the church where he grew up. At 18, he attended the Dave Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific in California. He then moved to NYC and received his undergrad from New School University. Since 2008, Chris has made a living playing music in NYC with wedding bands, church, recording projects and prominently jazz gigs touring the world. Chris has been very fortunate to work with Dave Brubeck, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Kendrick Lamar, Quincy Jones, Justin Kauflin, Robert Glasper, and Bishop Nathaniel Townsley to name a few. He is currently getting his masters in music at Mason Gross in Rutgers University in New Jersey.
