New Music: Benjamin Lerner

A phenomenal talent with a powerful life story to match it. When you listen to the classical piano, matched with it’s lyrical delivery, you can feel an intensity that you don’t often enjoy from such a stripped-back sound.

“When I first went to rehab, I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to make music anymore, because I made music about doing drugs for so long, I didn’t know if I’d be able to do it without getting high.  It took getting clean for me to realise that expression and creativity are the drugs I’ve been searching for all along. I’m still a junkie. I just get high off of music now.”
