Pixie Bennett made her industry debut as an Idols finalist (placed 7th in 2009) and went on to front the Pixie Bennett Band which toured extensively.

The feisty songbird is back with a brand new artist album. While this is a break from her signature pop rock style – house music, is in fact, a return to her roots. Her dance-floor skills bear testimony to a childhood spent perfecting her kwasa kwasa and jika majika moves in a farming community in KwaZulu-Natal.

A few years down the line, 19 year old Pixie landed a dream job on the illustrious Balearic party isle Ibiza recording chill house and working as a go-go dancer, which set the tone for further international bookings.

Delving deep into her party persona, Pixie Bennett has laced her lyrics over four-to-the-floor beats on a ten track house album. Set for digital release in May through heat-seeking specialists BBB records and well-established major Universal, A Thousand Paper Birds is an album that wholeheartedly encourages you to let loose on the dancefloor while immersing you in emotion.

Bennett enlisted one of the country's top electronic producers, Craig Massiv to build and blend the beats. “Being close friends, we really connected on the direction we were going to take on the album,” she explains. “We are both bass babies and love the groove of a track so we had loads of fun in the studio.”
