She hired him to play in her band
And so the story began…

When Laura Berman and Craig Benelli were commissioned in 2004 by Center for Spiritual Living in Morristown, NJ to write songs for their special programs, it began a musical partnership and a collection of spiritual songs that would affect the hearts and minds of thousands nationwide. That partnership became 4 Stories High and those songs became their first CD, Detour.

Since the release of their CD, the two have toured extensively opening for top-selling authors like Marianne Williamson and Neale Donald Walsch and performing at numerous Spiritual Centers across the country including The Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, CA.

“The music Laura & Craig make together is more than music…it’s magic!”
