The best kept secret in music



"Lance first came to me when he was 18 years old with his buddies to record a few songs. After that first visit he kept turning up on my doorstep about once each year to record some of his own compositions with just voice and guitar. This went on for several Lance Benson albums. It soon became obvious to me that this fellow had a superb songwriting talent and his guitar playing improved vastly over the years. Now, this last effort has finally turned the corners I knew he was capable of. The songs are descriptive, moving and full of the special Lance Vigor. He has taken himself to a new plateau by fleshing out his already good sound with a drummer, bassist, piano, and guest guitarists. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to add to the mixture with my guitar on several songs. What I really like about this album is that it sounds NATURAL. There is not one whit of looped or synthesized audio here. The sound is simply that of a very good band playing at it's best by supporting the wonderful vocals provided by Lance in a straight-forward, no nonsense manner. This is good stuff and will be a welcome addidtion to any CD collection. Invite yourself for a ride on Lance's trip. The journey is worth it. - Co-Producer and Turtle Town Records CEO had this to say about "Gestures"

Feeling a bit camera shy


Lance Benson has been writing and performing songs since he was 16. He played coffee houses in his hometown of Bemidji, MN until 1998 when he moved to Minneapolis and began touring the Mid-west on weekends while completing a degree in electronics at Dunwoody Institute. When finished with school in 2001, Lance decided to put his passion first and began touring full time and pursuing music as his career.
