Benjamin Doerksen

As a songwriter and lyricist, Benjamin Doerksen strives to elicit as much comfort as contemplation in his songs. His contemporary folk compositions about hope, hearth, and hardship find themselves just as much at home amongst the rolling hills of rural Southern Ontario as they do in the darkened dive bars of West End Toronto. Having been well molded by both, Ben’s music is sure to bring you in close with a strange sense of nostalgia, and leave you thrilled to be there with its cheeky curiosity, incisive insight, and just plain joyful entertainment.
