New Music: Paola Bennet

Native Bostonian and longtime New Yorker, Paola Bennet’s music brims with a raw sense of honesty that is not only captivating but deeply moving.

An indie-rock song which on the surface feels deceptively subtle, ‘In This Body’ carries an undertone of intense emotion and acts as a melancholy snapshot of Bennet’s experience with chronic illness.

“When no one can tell you’re in pain by looking at you, you doubt your instincts. I wanted to express that loss of trust in myself, and the isolation I felt when people around me ignored or explained away my very real experience.”
