Bennett is originally from Minnesota and moved to Lawrence, Kansas in 2014 to attend the University of Kansas on a music scholarship. While there, he met his wife, Erin, during the first marching band rehearsal. They enjoy spending time with their son, Micha, and daughter, Maisie. In his free time, Bennett enjoys playing any instrument he can get his hands on – mainly guitar, bass, and piano. He also enjoy training and spending time with their frisbee-obsessed blue heeler, Mowgli.
