Tapping into her southern roots with music Suchi describes as Organic Soul, "Step into the Light " is worthy of the roots it draws from … that uniquely American mix of soul, gospel, folk, pop and country.  This long awaited follow up to Suchi’s highly acclaimed CD "The Waters Edge" took her back to the Nashville recording studio of her long time friend, producer/musician, Kirby Shelstad, to collaborate on another soulful gem with the same care and attention associated with all her creative endeavors.


Accompanied by gifted musicians from Maui to Music City, "Step into the Light " takes the listener on a journey of transformation from darkness to light with 12 original songs that lift you up with soul searching emotion, stir your spirit, offer healing to your heart, and reaffirm core beliefs that sustain.  From the opening breath of the title song  "Step into the Light " to the final choral refrain of "I Believe," Benjamin expresses universal truths cut from plain spoken cloth that affirm the redemptive power of love.  Truly MUSIC FOR YOUR SOUL!

I love every single one of the songs on this CD. I love their intimacy and the flow and the variety. I love the resonant soulfulness of Suchi Benjamin's voice--sometimes rocking, sometimes poignant, sometimes just telling it like it really is. I love the musicianship and arrangements, the amazing vocal back-ups, the CD package that includes a tribute to, and photo of, everyone that made the music. And finally I love where the music takes me, how I feel--inspired and encouraged and joyful and weepy and full of experience and possibility all at the same time. After hearing the whole CD for the first time, there was such a rich stew of emotions swirling around inside my little universe that I got in my car--with the CD playing in what is currently the best sound system I have--and took a drive through this gorgeous springtime weather while listening to it all again, and again. What fun! What a great gift to give to everyone I love. This is the CD that I have been waiting for--it's FANTASTIC!!"........Anne Williams


THIS IS AN AWESOME CD!!!  I have favorites already; 'Unconditional Love' is an amazing track as is 'Step into The Light', both great pieces of writing and great recording. 'When the Wall Came Down' is growing on me big time and 'Forgive Myself' is like a classic performance that already echos of past greatness. I love the R&B feel in 'Get Back Up'.  Well done, Suzee. I am humbled and hammered by your musical talent and your willingness to power it up.....Mark Germino


Greetings from Seattle. It’s cloudy here, but your CD put some light into our atmosphere! (Step into the Light). I love the soulful tunes, the blues, and the cuts with the gospel edge. Your music is unique and comforting. It’s cool and it touches deeply.  I was sure that you had written some of those songs just for me. Keep rocking with your soulful self!  Loved it!.......Charlotte Foster


The arc of construction on the entire CD as a whole, the “mapping” and sequencing both musically, emotionally and song–wise is just wonderful.  Suchi first and fiercely calls us to Life with 'Step In To the Light', and then, sends us through human yearning, love, ambivalence, self responsibility and aspiration with the next four cuts to establish enough musical trust that we dare to follow her into the dark night of the soul with the crushing beauty of  'Until the Light Returns' (an unbelievably beautiful and beautifully written and sung song and one of my favorites). Then, we realize that it’s the only way through to personal integrity and we land solidly in the global, grown-up, personal manifesto/testimony of  'When The Wall Came Down'.  But where to from here?...re-integrated and personalized in the next four cuts (we even get to hear Tom’s voice in that nice duet!)... we can’t stop , so cap the journey off with 'I Believe' and we’re back on the road of Life again...... but now everything and nothing is the same.  All that and FABULOUS get down gospel/blues /rock chops and vocals to boot!  Amen, Amen, kneel down and put your hand on this CD!  You have restored me......Love, Annie Freeman

  

Suchi's message is deep, her voice powerful, and her talent is undeniable. I think there's a little something for everyone on this album. Suchi has called Maui home for many years, but her southern roots run deep, as evident by her music. This is MUSIC FOR THE SOUL folks!!! .........Susan Alden


Your music is so beautiful!  Purchased all I could find today.  It's soul touching music and my little one loved it as well.  He kept asking "again Mom Mom again" when the first album was over (he is almost two). Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift.........♥ Leia King-Carr


We are blessed by your music.  Your new album really lets the 'soul' come through the music.  It simmers beneath the surface and then rises when you least expect it........Kind regards & gratitude,  Andrew Moysey


Suzee Waters Benjamin's new CD "Step into the Light" is great!  I love the variety of music styles, from bluesy to ballads to rap.  One of my favorite songs is the duet with her husband Tom Benjamin, "You've got me where you want me" - their voices harmonize beautifully.  Suzee's message on this CD, like on her previous one "The Water's Edge" is about love, freedom in yourself, making the world a better place through sharing that love and freedom.  I've been playing this CD every day since I got it!........Marian,  Australia


Rarely do I come across an artist with as much soul and passion as I found on your record. Your voice literally jumped out of my speakers and grabbed at my heart........Brooks



I am going through a powerful transition and this music you have created is amazing and has really helped me transition by assisting in my ability to feel free and the ease of letting all this crap go.  I was able to down load both albums off  iTunes!   FANTASTIC!!     Thank you......D
