Rock and roll serves as the muse for this collection. Music, especially classic rock, has been an integral part of Nina Bennett’s life. Music and poetry are so entwined that she can’t imagine one without the other. Nina lives by the motto: No music, No life. Know music, know life.
“In "Mix Tape," Nina Bennett has written a love song to Memory Lane that works nostalgia into a grey chorus of old wounds healed, or not, by the raucous melodies of youth.
~ Danny Earl Simmons, author of The Allness of Everything
