Arlon Bennett is a storyteller who delivers timeless vignettes and melodies in his own style that recalls Harry Chapin and vintage James Taylor. Arlon was twice selected by Noel ‘Paul’ Stookey to perform in his Music2Life showcase at the Kerrville Folk festival, featuring America's best songs of social consciousness. His song, “Be the Change” from Summer’s Voice, has garnered top national airplay on folk radio and the New York Mets chose that CD’s title track to be featured in a tribute video to Hall of Fame sportscaster Bob Murphy before a packed house at Shea Stadium.
"Arlon's songs ring true, whether he's writing about the personal or the political. The result is inspiring."
- John Platt WFUV 90.7 FM New York -
“He is a singer/songwriter who brings you stories from unique perspectives, and draws you right in.” - Singer magazine -
