Album Notes
Patty Benson doesn't just sing the blues-she whispers, cries and even belts out the blues. Her vocals ring with confidence and emotion. She's sultry and bold as she spills out her lyrics on each and every song. Benson opens up the CD with, POOR OLE YOU, which is a fun , up-tempo tune, backed up by a solid rhythm section and full horn section featuring, Rusty Smith, Scott Adair and David Wright. She slides into her 2,666 MILES, as bass player Mark VanMourik and drummer Harvey Mitchell drive her words home. BLACK CAT features some sweet tantalizing guitar playing by Roy Roberts. The soft guitar climbs up and down, winds all around Benson's straight-ahead vocals. All DRIED UP, is a classic , slow and sultry blues tune. Robert's guitar leads into Benson's powerful vocals. She starts singing softly and constrained, then slowly builds up with intensity as she finally belts out her powerful, heartfelt blues. Damn sweet. Patty Benson writes some great lyrics, and sings with a style she makes her own. Her band backs her with authority. 2,666 MILES is a great pocket of blues."

Lisa Gualt
Blues ON Stage

"2,666 MILES is a fine set of funky southern soul/blues by another soul diva. Patty Benson list a few of her influences, but doesn't try to emulate them. She produces a sound that's all her own. Along with the title track, a few of my favorites are HIGH PRICE LOVE, the bluesy I CAN TOO, and the up beat SINGLE BLUES. An auspicious debut from this artist. I'll be looking forward to hearing more from her in the future."

Alan Shuttro
Blues Bytes

"Though Benson Cites Koko Taylor, Big Momma Thornton, Etta James and Aretha Franklin among her influences, her voice is lighter, smoother than any of theirs."
