As a native of small town, Garner, Iowa, Benjamin Lau is no stranger to hard work. At ten years old, Benjamin started teaching himself how to play the guitar; since then, he blossomed into a well-known artist in the Midwest. In the fall of 2011, Benjamin moved to Minneapolis to record his debut EP with producer, Chase Hentges. He knew this was an immense step towards his musical goals. While working with Hentges, he got to make music with some of Minneapolis’s finest musicians and drastically improved as a musician himself. He has since had the opportunity to open for rock legend, Kenny Loggins, and release his first EP entitled Simple Things.
