Zildjian are delighted to welcome Ben Kennedy to our family of worldwide Artists; Ben is currently drumming with NZ born/UK based pop/dance sensation Ladyhawke.
Ben says "Zildjian for me are incomparable. I'm delighted to be part of the family who have served many great drummers for years."
Ladyhawke, aka Pip Brown, whose debut album has gone gold in the UK, Australia and New Zealand recently swept the board at the New Zealand Music Awards 2009 by taking home six Awards including:
- Album of the Year
- Single of the Year
- International Achievement Award
- Best Female Solo Artist
- Breakthrough Artist of the Year
- Best Dance/Electronic Album
Ben continues "The Ladyhawke gig so far has been great. Pip Brown is a very talented song writer and musician so it's an absolute honour to be playing for her.
The New Zealand Music Awards were very special as it was a homecoming gig. Pip had a great night, picking up six Awards! It was a fantastic way to end the tour after a month in the US. Touring has finished in the UK after the busy festival season, so next we are heading to Australia for a headline tour and then playing Big Day Out in January."
