The Album “You, Me and the Velvet Sea” is the thrid studio album of Emily Davis (releases Friday, 12.07.2019 via (“SONGS & WHISPERS” / Broken Silence).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

‘You, Me & the Velvet Sea’ has a sound that splits the difference between folk and rock driven by Davis’ sassy and syrupy voice and evocative lyrics. The tracks contemplate love in all of its incarnations, conjuring cinematic images, and haunting tableaus, and sass, inspired by the ever-changing mood of the sea.

loads of depth here that’s well beyond the over-produced and over-rated pop music industry’ -The Barefoot Review



‘syrupy vocals and nostalgic lyrics’ -Fritz Magazine



‘Hosting ten tracks elegantly carved by an insightful songwriter whose music walks the line between folk and rock, the album sees the seasoned musician depart from her renowned gentle pop-folk style of albums past for a stronger, rockier feel.’ - Radio Adelaide

Single"All Knives Out" ("SONGS & WHISPERS" / Broken Silence) releases on Friday, 05.07.2019!

The single “All Knives Out” is the first outtake of the upcoming album the "King of Bitter Sorrow" (releases Friday, 28.02.2020 via (“SONGS & WHISPERS” / Broken Silence).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All Knives Out - Drawn from Ben’s experience as a social worker, working with abused teenagers. 

Here Lorentzen continues to dive deeper into the Suburban Noir landscape he started exploring with two previous albums. In other words: it is still dark and moody, it’ s introvert, eclectic and dealing with the pains and pleasures of existence. The pace is slower than on the previous album “Pains & Pleasures of Intimacy”, but the lyrics are strong, heartfelt and sung as if life depended on it. As a backdrop Ben Lorentzen explains how he imagines the 10 songs as a conversation between humanity and it’s collective conscience and how the two entities falling apart becomes the King of Bitter Sorrow.

HUFFINGTON POST - Morena Duwe: “The intensity of his spirit paired with his musical prowess (...) will make this album soar.”


WHIM MAGAZINE - Melanie: You’re sure to love the new album titled America


HUFF POST - Randy Radic: “Ben Lorentzen has it going on in an enormous way! “Lay Down In The Dark” exudes a sultry blues melody that’s wickedly contagious, full of flowing strings and harmonic accents that add to the melody’s dark voluptuous feel. And Lorentzen’s voice invokes just the right quality of overwhelming urgent longing. Don’t miss “Lay Down In The Dark.” It’s yazum!"

If Hozier and Ed Sheeran sellout 20,000 seated arena's, then why can't Dan Krikorian do the same? His new album is definitely a must for fans of such sweet singer/songwriter-ish music and I hope for some more of his soulful R&B side next time around, which could already be heard here and there. Ulanga is by far the finest song on the CD, a beautiful bluesy melodic ballad with nice guitar solo, kinda John Mayer-ish. Recommended record for sure!" -Stutterzine Magazine
