Daughter of Actor/Director Robby Benson and singer songwriter Karla DeVito, eco-psychedelic pop songstress Lyric Benson emerged from almost a decade of the study of consciousness and awakening to create her debut album Lyric’s Love Light Revolution — a celebration of her wildly eccentric journey into the throws of divine L-O-V-E! All of her lyrics were inspired and taken directly from the experiences she had over these very unconventional years.
Lyric is an enthusiastic screenwriter (NYU Film), poet, actress, photographer, spiritual teacher and activist. An avid practitioner of Transcendental Meditation, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Maharishi University of Management with a degree in Vedic Science.
Lyric is now working full time as Teacher and Director of Programs and Outreach for The Wholeness, a growing worldwide organization based on the teachings of Divine Love. All of Lyric’s poetry and lyrics have been deeply inspired by her experiences working with this amazing organization — as they offered breakthrough technologies of awakening to bring the awareness back to the love and truth that is resonating within the heart of us all!
Lyric is also honored and excited to help kick-start GATE’s NextGen: inspiring young artists to change the world. GATE, The Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment, is a non-profit charitable organization founded in 2009 by John Raatz, Jim Carrey, Ekhart Tolle and David Langer for artists and interested individuals who realize the vital and expanding role media and entertainment play in creating our lives, and aspire to consciously transform those domains for the benefit of all.
