My name is Arlon Bennett and I use the muse, my voice and a hollow wooden box with strings to assemble and deliver timeless songs that evoke a little Harry Chapin and maybe some vintage James Taylor. I have evolved from there to become all of *me*; writing songs with an eloquence, honesty, and wry sense of humor. I just love to communicate with music by creating songs from the sounds of life.

A song is worth a thousand explanations, so listen to some free full-song streams under Music! above. Be sure to listen to a few because just when you think you got me pegged, I turn the pegboard upside down.  So... take a look around! Maybe there is some overlap between my music and what your soul is hungry for.

 Mamma's Maxim            
 My Italian mother (Mamma) is a cosmopolitan woman of grace and character who hails from Italy via Eritrea (Africa), bakes a mean lasagna, and cooks with wine (not always in the food). Her maxims of wisdom whether created by her or adopted from others, are always on the mark. My current favorite...

"Music is a moral law; It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything" -- Plato
