LML Music is proud to announce the release of Cindy Benson's debut solo recording OUT ON A WHIM.

Cindy Benson
is a tiny wisp of a thing with a voice that can break your heart one moment and leave you laughing helplessly the next. She travels genres and cross-pollinates cabaret with jazz and musical theater, injecting each style with her unmistakable personality. She somehow transforms her voice to inhabit an extraordinary range of material from the stratospheric intro of "Mr. Paganini" to a rich contralto singing "Can't Help Lovin' That Man…" Listening to Cindy sing, you can feel each mood, each expression, each smile and sigh that brings her music alive.

This collection of songs is truly a journey through the whims, the woe and whimsy of one of the most talented performers today.

"...a terrific debut solo album! Unearthed gems... clever and intelligent, performed with a knowing glance by a talented singer with a sonorous instrument. Each and every lyric is interpreted with a clarity of sound and spirit including the powerful Can't Help Lovin' That Man and the moving One More Walk Around the Garden. Her sweeping belt on Ridin' High can send shivers.... an exciting and refreshing delight!"

"... lilting, amusing and occasionally heart-breaking delivery, this uplifting and well-crafted release is one of the finest post-Broadway recordings".

I've worked with Cindy since before the beginning of her career. Do you have any idea how long that is? Never mind, it's been worth it. I was determined that this would not be one of those ego stroking pieces of puffery about how she has such an extraordinary voice (opera singers come to see her and try to figure out how she does what she does!) or how funny she is (the New York Post called her "a comic genius") or how she can turn around and break your heart with a simple ballad -- No, I'm not going to do any of that.

I've worked with a lot of "big names" in the last 25 years, but no bigger talent than Cindy Benson. I think the most important impact that Cindy has made on me is reflected in the faces of her audiences. The people who come back to see her time after time because, once seen, she becomes a tenant who occupies a permanent place in your heart. If you have a better way to describe her, tell me about it -- or better yet, tell friends!
