Bio:

Transit is a hip-hop artist who moved to Calgary from Victoria in 2007. He has gained notable buzz from media outlets such as Much Music, Maclean’s Magazine, Q with Jian Ghomeshi and many more. His new album “Stale” was released January of 2013 and climbed all the way to the #4 spot on the iTunes Canadian hip-hop charts on it’s opening day of release.

Transit has recently collaborated with notable artists such as Jann Arden, Madchild, Grieves and Kyprios. However, his popularity extends past the music industry, as seen by his recent selection to the short-list to be Calgary’s first ever Poet Laureate.

After recently completing a Western-Canadian tour with Zion I in January as well as an European tour with Apathy & Celph Titled, this Calgarian based emcee is currently occupying the studio, working on writing his fourth album.

…a celebration of the new west…

His last two albums have both charted in the top 5 releases on iTunes hip hop and his latest effort, Stale, is on pace to surpass sales of all his past releases.

FFWD Magazine
…his introspective rhymes have reached a new level of significance, delving into topics as various as bullying, celebrity obsession and predatory religious practices. Themes are more defined, with a narrative of sorts emerging through the 40-minute record. It works well, with Bennett declaring in Stale his willingness to walk down the same narrative-focused, often self-deprecating path as Slug, Macklemore and Grieves.

Calgary Herald
Artistically and personally it’s difficult not to appreciate what the past year and a half has done to Daniel Bennett

Avenue Calgary
“…if Bennett can replicate the YouTube success he’s had in the past, there could be half a million more people in the world who won’t expect to be picked up from the airport in a chuckwagon.
