Saskatoon, SK
Pop/R&B
Alex Bent + the Emptiness is the recording and performing alt-pop/R&B solo project of Saskatoon singer Alex Bent. Likened to that of hip-hop/R&B artists Post Malone, Joji and Frank Ocean, Bent mixes his own twist of nostalgia with the current trends of the genre.

His debut EP, Vanilla Blue was mastered by Trevor Case of Case Mastering (Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliot). Its title track, “Vanilla Blue”, was premiered exclusively on Hip Hop Canada, and has amassed over 17,000 Spotify plays. More recently, Bent released the single, “Gwen Stefani” which premiered on Earmilk, and features contributions from Brockhampton affiliates singer-songwriter Jack Larsen and producer Connor Barkhouse. Subject matter that Bent touches on offers a unique perspective on the celebration that follows the breakup of an unhealthy relationship.

Alex Bent + the Emptiness has been an active live act since 2016 playing opening slots for Phantogram, Cub Sport and [Sebell], as well as being featured at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, ON in April 2017. With a western Canadian tour currently in the works for spring 2019, Bent plans to spend the year touring in support of his upcoming album, Baby.
