Composer | Writer | Radio Host | Recovery Advocate
Benjamin Lerner, the great-grandson of Irving Berlin (composer of such iconic tunes as “God Bless America” and “White Christmas”), is a Vermont-based composer, writer, radio host and recovery advocate. Benjamin started his musical career as a classical piano prodigy. By his early twenties, he was an IV heroin and crack cocaine addict.
Sober since June 13, 2016, Benjamin journals his journey in addiction and sobriety in his all-new piano-raps, which combine classical piano and rap.
Benjamin credits his continued success in recovery to his ability to express his emotions relating to his struggle through word and song.
