Bennett describes her nu-soul sound as the "The new age high" that takes you to an elevated level. Native of Richmond, Virginia and a product of Howard University, Bennett made her introduction into the entertainment world while singing with D.C. based group “Entyme”. It was in Richmond, Virginia and D.C. that Bennett found her passion for songwriting and performing. She quotes, “I want you to feel high without the feeling of a superficial one. Through my music, I want to create and redefine an atmosphere of love and beauty in all forms and on all levels. It's all about the beauty of elevation. My music is universal and for all seasons." She is currently a member of the new school Roy Ayers Music Production (RAMP) whose musical contributions provided the world with samples for hits like, A Tribe Called Quest’s “Bonita Applebum”, Mary J. Blige’s “My Life” and Erykah Badu’s “America’s Promise”.
