Ben Jorgensen (born July 4, 1983) is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Armor for Sleep.
Early life and education
Jorgensen grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey, and is of German, Danish, and Japanese descent. Jorgensen attended the Jewish day school, Solomon Schechter Day School of Bergen County, and the Solomon Schechter of Essex and Union, where he graduated in 2001.
Early in his musical career Jorgensen was the drummer for punk band Random Task. Jorgensen formed Armor for Sleep in 2001, writing the first songs during the summer after his first year in college, which were recorded as a demo CD for $100 at a local recording studio, with Jorgensen playing all the instruments himself. These songs were later re-recorded for Armor For Sleep's debut album, Dream to Make Believe, released in 2003 on Equal Vision Records.
Armor For Sleep disbanded in 2009, and Jorgensen started an electronic project with Sierra Shardae, named God Loves a Challenge, which only released an unnamed EP of various tracks. Jorgensen recorded his debut solo EP, titled There Is Nowhere Left to Go, at Treehouse Studios in Jersey City, and was released on October 5, 2010 via digital download.
Jorgensen made a cameo appearance in Fall Out Boy's "Dance, Dance" video in 2005, and also in Cobra Starship's video for "The City Is at War," in 2007, playing alongside Pete Wentz as a policeman.
In 2013, Jorgensen married actress Katrina Bowden.
