About Chris Bennett & Bill Marx

Chris Bennett is a fine singer based in Los Angeles whose style crosses over between pop and jazz and whose voice can be quite haunting. Both of her parents played piano (her mother was an elementary school music teacher) and she was studying piano and dance by the time she turned five. Bennett majored in music and dance at the University of Illinois and went to graduate school at UCLA. She started appearing in nightclubs at that time and for a period settled in Germany. As a pop songwriter, she was quite successful; her tunes were recorded by top artists in the R&B and pop fields, including Tina Turner. Since returning to Los Angeles, Chris Bennett has recorded as a leader for Renegade and Pacific St. ~ Scott Yanow
