"Love transcends all...'Forever In My Heart' is a song dedicated to our American Armed Forces, past and present, and their families worldwide, whose sacrifices allow us the freedoms we often take for granted every day. Because of their dedication and service, we continue to be the 'land of the free, and the home of the brave.' As I continue on my path, I find it essential to give back and to be of service in any way I can. Through my voice, I have found a way to say thank you." -Carolyn

I am proud to introduce an original song, written together with Gray Devio, entitled "Patriots Pledge," in honor of the Pledge of Allegiance, our great country, its citizens, and dedicated to Lt. Gen Michael Flynn, who graciously performs the Pledge on the recording, and inspired this entire project.
Carolyn Benson’s musical career inspiration began in musical theater at a very young age, always participating and performing in grade school productions. This never stopped over the years, and Carolyn went on to attend the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music to further her natural musical talents and pursue a higher education in music performance. Following conservatory, Carolyn took a step back from music after meeting her husband to be. They were married and together have two lovely children, but her passion for music never ceased calling her back to the stage.
Being a lover of Linda Ronstadt’s music, in all of its styles and nuances, Carolyn formed a Linda Ronstadt tribute band called "Blue Bayou", which garnered much success and recognition. This allowed her to build her repertoire and exercise her vocal and stage talents.
With many live performances under her belt and production offers since then, Carolyn sought out to honor the inner voice that had been her beacon all along by returning to the stage with original music and original arrangements of popular songs. Currently, Carolyn is working with and being produced by Juilliard graduate and international multi-instrumentalist, Gray Devio. Together, they are excited to continue the realization of Carolyn's musical potential and deliver it to the world.
“Tremendous energy, enthusiasm and talent.”
“Recently had the pleasure of seeing her perform in Mississippi and I was blown away.”
“She's electric! Her stage presence is bigger than life!”
