The Kale is Oscar Bennasar, a composer and multi instrumentist born in 1977 in Tenerife. He started writing songs at the age of thirteen on his father's piano and had not stopped yet. Before sixteen he had learned to play guitar, bass guitar and drums.
His first album, Demo Tapes, was recorded between March 2006 and November 2007 at The Summarine Studio, Tenerife. It was released on May 2008 collecting a lot of good critics. It included songs as "Nonpareil", "Gnat" or "Brief Description About The Chaos Of Pleasure".
On July 2009 it was released a project-son, Cut The Demo Tapes, an obscure electronic reinterpretation of Demo Tapes with completely sythesized versions of "From Inner Space", "Loner" and "Limousine", and also a magical folkie remix of "Images Of Love".
Locking Rock was The Kale's second album full of brand new material. Recorded between March 2009 and August 2010, it was released on April 2011. It contains nine songs in a more critical, cool and contemporary field than the first recording did.
Apart from The Kale, Oscar Bennasar has produced the first AAVA's EP, The Bliss In Between, and has worked with the german musician Frank J. von Sob on his electronic project. Oscar Bennasar is also composing the piano soundtrack for a short film directed by Manuel Pérez Cedrés and developing his work as a producer with the band The Bambons.
