'Be It' is an imaginative and intelligent work which highlights Witney’s compositional strength and soulful voice. With performances by some of Australia's best musicians and a collaboration with producer Phil Stack (Thirsty Merc, James Morrison), the EP has resulted in a well rounded and thoughtful four songs.
Arising from a diverse background of Folk, Brazilian Soul and Australian Roots, Jesse’s influences as an artist are broad and his songs are reflective.
The tracks on 'Be It' explore themes of empowerment, love and the natural world. Witney hopes the four songs will ultimately inspire the listener to take on conscious sensibilities regarding our collective being and environment. This holistic outlook flows through the entire recording process, in which only organic instrumentation and production techniques were used. credits released September 2, 2015
