I try to write music that acknowledges pain but is still earnest and sweet. I’d rather come off as sentimental than clever. I like music that exposes vulnerability. I’d like to write things in music that make me feel a bit embarrassed to say otherwise.

If you’re new to my music, my most popular songs are Purification Ritual, Silence and Circles.

I live in Toronto with my wife. Stephen James Kerr produces my music and I occasionally collaborate with Bert McKinley on music videos. My day-job is running Site Builder Report.

It’s always really really cool to hear from listeners— you can say “Hi!” by emailing me at steve@stevebenjamins.com.
