Benjamin Warren was born in Michigan and spent his early years there before moving to New York City. After High School he formed the band 'What's Up' with several friends and began touring the Tri-State area. Signed to a 'major' label they began recording an album never to be released. When the group broke up he formed his own project, 'Flies of the Marketplace.' He recently completed 'Famous' - a solo album a year in the making and worth it's weight in Kobe beef. It should secure him a studio apartment in the pop kingdom. "My most memorable gig?', he muses. "Have to be the time my amp came ungrounded, everytime I came up to sing I'd get a shock that made me jump like a ballerina. People started throwing things at me screaming 'Dance, boy, dance!' I finally left the stage when a redneck at the bar started shooting at my feet." Sipping a glass of white Bordeaux he says, 'In conclusion I believe we forge our own destiny out of free will but can never know the huge grand scheme of things. We shape our lives on a small level seemingly attaining some sort of control over our destiny. But when you see something like an earthquake knock out 30,000 people you lose the belief in complete self-determination. Don't you? That said I'd rather labor under the false pretense that I in some way affect my end than to know the god awful truth. That God is dead and that we are all beasts in the wild chaos.'
