Ben DeLaurentis is a singer-songwriter and the founder of Virginia rock band, Steal The Prize. Steal The Prize is a melodic rock’n’roll group based out of Lynchburg, Virginia. Starting out all the way back in middle school, they have spent years defining their sound, vigorously performing live, and characterizing a unique regional music community. Among the four member strong group, Steal The Prize explores a vast frontier of vintage instrumentation and big harmonies. They draw inspiration and combine many different styles including rock’n’roll, jazz, and country-western, as a specific genre never seems to quite represent where they have been nor where they are headed.
In 2011 Steal The Prize released their second full length album entitled I Think I Am. The entire album was recorded fully analog to 1 inch tape on a 16 channel task cam reel to reel machine. After the release of “I Think I Am” in May 2011, the band released “Don’t Forget You’re Sad” on Blue Sprocket Records.
Ben DeLaurentis and Steal The Prize continue to write new material, perform live regularly, and are planning for an east coast tour in support of the new album. Recently, Steal The Prize has garnered some career building exposure, most notably, the license of their new single “The Devil Made Me Do It” for Relix Magazine’s September issue compilation CD.
