Chester Bennington’s Son Releases EP, ‘Talented as His Father’ Says Widow
Talinda Bennington, the widow of Chester Bennington, has posted some music online from the late singer's 21-year-old son Jaime, tweeting, "Our son Jaime is as talented as his father." She then linked to his new four-song EP, Reveries 4, which features piano based compositions.
Jaime is the eldest child of Chester Bennington. His mother is Elka Brand. Of his music, Jaime says, "To be honest, I ran out of ideas and I most definitely ran out of motivation. But I’m back and I have come bearing gifts! Below are the next installments of my Reveries compositions. This time around I have gone the whole nine yards to construct a collection of pieces, rather than one big one (although there is a lengthy piece at the end)."
Jaime explained that his inspiration behind the pieces, which can be heard below, was noted 20th Century Russian composer Dimitri Shostakovich, which he says he "cultivated over the last six months through the systematic consumption of every symphony, brooding string quartet and whimsical piano solo."
