the main website regarding the musical
career of STEPHANIE BENNETT
can be found at
HarpworldŽ and the Harpworld logo are registered trademarks of
Stephanie Bennett/Harpworld Music Co. So there.
Q. Which Stephanie Bennett is which?
see here Stephanie Bennett, the Harpist, Composer, Arranger,
Recording Artist, Record Producer, occasional Vocalist, Vegan, fan of
animals and of animals' rights.
Some OTHER Stephanie Bennetts who are *NOT*
the same person include:
A New York film and video producer. A Houston
dog trainer. A Realtor in Chickahominy (say that ten times fast).
A photographer/artist who specializes in creating 'dark, disturbing'
(creepy, scary) images. A young lady (and I use that term loosely) whose
dream is apparently to break into the (ahem, cough cough, [makes
air-quotes with fingers]) "adult modeling" business. A 'romance'
author. A certified hula hoop teacher. Someone who was in People
magazine in '07 for losing 130 pounds (If I ever lost 130 pounds, I'd
be anti-gravity. You'd have to tie rocks to me to keep me from floating
away). A Penn State Master Gardener. Someone involved in some sort
of legal brou-ha-ha having to do with adoptions. A Univ. of Buffalo
basketball star (Ha! Basketball?? I'm five-foot-nuthin' in heels).
Not one but two Gospel singers (one in Pennsylvania and one in
Florida, who is also a communications professor). A 'dance
music' singer (well, she spells her name Stefanie, but iTunes confuses us
anyway.) A pastor in Connecticut. Another pastor in West Virginia.
(Or, is that the same gal, who moved? Dunno.) A spay-and-neuter director
in Memphis (my hat's off to her for helping the critters!) A museum
curator in the UK.
Repeat: those Stephanie Bennetts are *NOT*
the same person who is pictured on this page.
CDbaby.com and iTunes store: the Stephanie Bennett CDs and songs featuring
harp ARE me.
The Stephanie Bennett Christian
CDs and songs are NOT me.
Any album with "Tazmania" in the title (or the label) is NOT me.
IMDb's Stephanie Bennett VI (the sixth): yes. IMDb's Stephanie
Bennetts I, II, III, IV, V and VII: no.
Do animals have thoughts? Feelings? It's baffling to me that some people
actually still doubt it. The scientific community (for the most part)
has been teaching for hundreds of years that everything animals do is 'just
instinct'; but everyone who's ever known an animal knows that they have
feelings, just as we do; love, fear, likes and dislikes, sadness, pain,
loneliness, suffering. People would just prefer to believe that
animals are more different from us than they really are, to rationalize the
horrible exploitation and suffering that humans subject them to. I
wrote a song about a true story about gorilla/cat
and bear/cat friends... (here is a Youtube video about Wildlife
Images, where the bear and cat friends lived.)
Here are some Youtube videos of other animal friends
(demonstrating that animals have THOUGHTS and FEELINGS above and beyond
'instinct for survival of their own species', which is all that SOME people
think they possess.)
and dolphin friends
and burro friends
Cat and crow friends
Crow plays on rooftop,
repeatedly sledding down for fun
Cat and owl friends
dog sings to human baby to calm him
pulls an injured dog off the highway

Worth a read - NY Times article by a food critic, (who is NOT an
animal-rights activist): "Finally,
fake chicken worth eating."
Here's a good, informative, moving 70-minute
talk about animals' rights and veganism.
