I am Ben Lorentzen.

I am thrilled that you are here – because we are a lot alike, you and I!

We are both passionate about the music we chose to listen to.

Music has to mean something to you, it has to make you feel something,

it has to provoke your thinking.

I create music that makes my hair stand up!

I think that people around me want the same, so I make sure to put the best

I can into writing a song that will provoke an opinion, a feeling, a thought.

My philosophy is:

If you don’t feel it, don’t play it.

I bet it’s the same for you.

Why play it if you don’t feel it?

Below you can get my most requested song.

It is a song called “The Ugliest Girl in the World”.

I know this has made people cry, it has made people angry and

I get questions about it all the time.

From all over US, from my home country Norway, from Japan, Korea, Australia

and around the globe.

In case you wondered...

Norway 2

… I come from one of the most dramatic places on the planet;

Norway!

I saw my first northern light when I was 5 years old.

I understand why it is top 5 on people’s bucket list.

Maybe yours too?

I think experiences like seeing the Northern Lights forms you.

It certainly shaped my music.

It’s dramatic, dark, quiet and beautiful.

I sense similar forces in the music of Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, Chris Cornell, just to mention a few.
