In her album, Lyric’s Love Light Revolution, Lyric brings the poetry of cosmic consciousness to Earth with the power of modern rock — flaming guitar, eco-psychedelic hip-pop, atmospheric electronica, and a fat bottom. Play it loud. Bring your air guitar. Plan on singing along. Dance if you want to!
When Lyric’s poetry evolved into ideas for songs, she collaborated with her father, Robby Benson, who wrote the music, and arranged and produced the ten-song album in his home studio. Robby’s musical genius lays the foundation for Lyric’s powerful lyrics to flow into light.
Lyric’s Love Light Revolution is a cosmic journey inward.
Lyric raps soliloquies between verses of pop melodies, alternating hypnotic repetition, with lightness of being, and good old fashioned fist thumping beats.
Lyric’s vocal dynamics and the span of the music across all five genomes — pop/rock, hip-hop/electronica, jazz, world music, and classical — can be traced back to her gene pool. Her mom, co-producer and legendary singer, Karla DeVito had two solo albums, headlined MTV’s first New Year’s Eve concert, toured the world with Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf as the female lead in the original Bat Out of Hell, and starred as Mabel, in Joe Papp’s Broadway production of Pirates of Penzance, where she met Robby.
Actor-writer-director Robby Benson, (One on One, The Chosen, Running Brave, Ice Castles) became a member of New York City Musicians Union 802 at the age of 14 and has been the recipient of several RIAA Gold Records for songwriting, most notably We Are Not Alone for John Hughes’ seminal film, The Breakfast Club.
Though it may be in her DNA to be a performer, Lyric Benson truly brings her own energy and insight to the music in this breakthrough sonic extravaganza!
