The best kept secret in music


"The Validation Project Demo"

"As a man who is looking at the deeper things in life, Ben's music captures the reality of emotion that all mankind deals with. Ben's music is solid and driving which allows an acoustic heavy feel, yet he is still able to capture some intimate moments. This young musician is ready to bring his music to the community where listeners can come along side with Ben and share in his songwriting."
-Jacob Kaufman, Professor of Contemporary Music, Central College - Central College


These Moments, 2007


Feeling a bit camera shy


Since he was thirteen, Ben Siemens knew that there was nothing he do could except make music; it was then that he picked up his first guitar. Nine years later he has taken the steps to make that happen. Siemens performed in practically every opportunity he could, playing guitar and/or singing. Ben attended college for music, graduating with a degree in contemporary music at Central College, which culminated with a visit to the Contemporary Music Center in Martha's Vineyard, MA. At the CMC, Siemens underwent intensive writing, recording, and performing of contemporary music (which he had in smaller doses at college), working with professionals such as Tom Willet (former A&R for Sony/BMG). Afterwards, Ben returned to the Midwest and recorded a new demo EP, The Validation Project - These Moments, in which he combines his broad influences of rock, alternative, screamo, metal, and pop all into a tight acoustic package. With his demo EP out and the actual full-length album soon to follow, Ben is poised to hit the road with songs that let people know that they are not alone in life's ups and downs.
