about

Daily Benson Seattle, Washington

Talent runs deep in the Benson family, as the teenage daughter of singer/songwriter Robb Benson (Dear John Letters) has her old man's gift for song. Her debut features her soulful and sultry voice—think Fiona Apple or Feist, with darkly introspective songs to match.

Track Name: Anyway
maybe you're in love with a ghost
talking to yourself
when you're talking to somebody else
I know that a ghost wouldn't be so friendly
but you love her anyway
staying up to hear her cry
neither of us can sleep tonight
realizing that she once died
Track Name: Dessine-moi un mouton
is it a bad idea
'cause flight by birds is all he needs
confide in somebody
and ask 'em what to do about a sheep
he wouldn't run
at the sight of something that was slithering across his back
he wouldn't run
he would slip away slowly
you wouldn't even see
Track Name: How to write a song
start with something sad
that you can get away with
and end with something touching
that you forgot about
I dont know how anybody can miss this
after every song I write, I learn to write again
in the very middle, talk like you know the game
and if you're second guessing
leave it that way
Track Name: More
bless you for being here on time
excuse me but everything is fine
slowly I walk across the floor
i'm sorry it's not as beautiful as yours
but every time i hear it, I get nervous
the words i'm reading over are so reckless
when the door is open I want out
but how can I run when its warm here
you make everybody shy
you talk slow and look me in the eye
dancing across the wooden boards
luckily you cheer and clap for more
