Wright State University alumna releases cabaret album as Irene & Reed…

Irene & Reed vocalist and lyricist Leslie Benson was featured in the Wright State News on August 3, 2011. Benson received a bachelor of English degree from her alma mater, WSU, in 2004 and went on to get her master’s in journalism two years later from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

“Thanks to Wright State University professors Gary Pacernick, Brady Allen, Jane Blakelock, Adrienne Cassel, Jim McCutcheon and Annette Oxindine for helping hone a childhood love of writing into a lucrative career and a passion for songwriting,” Benson says. “Teachers like these are what form the backbone of my faith for a brighter, more open-minded future in our nation.”
