My name is Jan Bentham. I am originally from Toronto but I now live in Ottawa. I am a teacher by profession and I work in the area of religious education.
I am a singer/songwriter influenced by Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot and traditional country music. I write music for Church and Liturgy as well as charitable causes such as Habitat for Humanity and IPCA (International Prison Chaplains Association). I am primarily interested in writing music for social justice causes. I like to take part in the annual Song-a-long with Ottawa songwriters. I am presently working on a CD of social justice and peace music.
