Rhonda Bennett is a native of Indianapolis, Indiana. She has been working on her music career since the age of 6 when she began piano lessons. Guitar lessons followed a few years later. In 1990 she was introduced to Tony Burton, who would become her songwriting partner. "Tony and I have a great friendship, and our songs naturally come together." "I have been blessed to have him in my life....typically Tony writes the music to my lyrics, and it just flows like magic."
Rhonda's songs all tell a story. She writes from the heart and can make you laugh and cry in the same song. "Music has been my friend and gotten me through the best and worst times of my life. My dream is to be a part of the soundtrack of our times." "The wonderful thing about music is that there's room for everyone...and no age limit!"
After a lifetime of playing in cover bands, Rhonda finally debuted her original songs at a cozy place in Westchester County, New York called the Ardsley Ale House. "That night was a dream come true", she remembers, "to finally be playing my songs in front of a huge room full of people, it was surreal. Singer/songwriter and incredible guitarist, Brian Christopher, accompanied me on guitar and provided backing vocals. He really knew how to interpret and add the right amount of "punch" to my songs." After that initial performance, Rhonda went on to begin recording the tracks for this CD.
Rhonda is currently back in Indianapolis after a few years in southern California. Her plans are to continue writing, recording and performing live. Check out her MySpace page at www.myspace.com/RhondaLBennett.
