Sylvia Bennett

Of your touring and gigs so far in your career, do any stand out as being particularly memorable or defining moments?

Singing at the Inaugural Balls for President Reagan and President Bush.

What are you most proud of at this point in your life and career?

I am proud to have worked with the legendary Lionel Hampton and, in particular, receiving the Grammy Nomination for Sentimental Journey.

Who would you say has been the single biggest influence in your life in getting you to where you are now in your career?

No doubt the legendary vibraphonist, Lionel Hampton because he took me under his wing and taught me many valuable lessons like be honest and always sing from the heart and make sure to choose music that the audience wants to hear.

How would you describe what inspires you to do what you do?

I’m inspired to do what I do because I love making people happy with my music.

What’s your favorite non-music activity?

My favorite non-music activity is to travel with my husband to as many places in the world as we can, while we can.

What would be the most important piece of advice you’d impart to a young musician just starting out in the jazz/smooth jazz arena?

I encourage a young musician to always be true to yourself, do music because you love and are passionate about it and as Lionel Hampton said to me, “sing from the heart.”
