Loren Benjamin is more than just a man with an interesting name. Though born in New York City, he is the child of two cultures worlds apart. The oldest of four children born to an Israeli father and an American mother, Loren grew up New York and in Israel.
Israeli citizens are required to serve in the military. Loren, too, did his part by serving in the Israeli Army and playing in the Army band.
Back in his native New York this singing songwriter plays his guitar and piano when on stage performing.
Musicians frequently pen their own songs and sometimes even write for other musicians. Not only has Benjamin composed songs for other singers...he wrote them for some of the biggest names in Israeli pop music today.
The 23 year old Benjamin was barely a teen when he first picked up his father's guitar and taught himself to play; then came the piano. Now Benjamin plays his own guitar...a left handed guitar; which he says is sometimes rather hard to find.
