You just released your debut album, Lyric's Love Light Revolution (produced, arranged, and engineered by your dad, Robby Benson).  Please share your journey creating this album.
After almost eight years devoted to Self-development and the study of higher states of consciousness, I felt a need to share the experiences of my awakening with others. It was like being hit by a bolt of lightening. I gathered up all of my writing from the journey and asked my parents (Karla DeVito and Robby Benson) if they would partner with me on this music project. They said: “YES!” — and I immediately moved into their home on Cape Cod.

I would give my dad lyrics and in hours he would come running downstairs with some amazing composition he put together. Then we would all go upstairs to his studio, listen, give feedback, and let the song emerge as an organically evolving, living, breathing piece of music. We worked quickly together, the process was amazing, and the album was ‘birthed’ in eight months — a whirlwind of love, bliss, and true creative passion.

What inspires your writing?
My inspiration comes from my journey into silence where I discovered peace is not passive, peace is dynamic, peace is powerful, peace is fearlessness. I feel I have become a spiritual activist. Inner peace has the power to transform and revolutionize all of life. I found freedom to be the absence of fear. To experience fearlessness is to experience true freedom. My spiritual awakening set me free: “brave unclothed and unashamed, with no one to blame, just life to reclaim — remove the fear — remove the fear — this is the road in which peace appears.” I found God or Truth within myself — and this love inspires everything.

What message would you like your music and poetry to convey to the audience?
Silence has the power to transform. Revolutionize your thinking.  Awaken to your inner truth. Peace is powerful. You are this power. You are divine. Set yourself free. Freedom begins within. Love lights the way to freedom.

Name 5 adjectives to describe you as a person.

Tell us more about the causes and charities close to your heart.
Inner peace, clarity, and coherence help to establish outer peace. I am inspired by the work of the Brahmananda Saraswati Foundation, a global peace initiative, which establishes groups of vedic pandits throughout India to help raise world consciousness. I deeply support the David Lynch Foundation, which raises funds to teach Transcendental Meditation to at-risk youth and veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. And I love the work of Matthew Reifslager and The Wholeness, which helps enlighten the individual to the experience of God-awareness through vibrational healing and technologies of awakening.

What projects will you be working on in the future?
Right now my focus is on performance and spreading the light. I am looking to put on an amazing live show so people can experience the transformational quality of this music in person.

I think the best advice I could give is to follow your heart and allow the path to organize itself in front of you. :)
