Orlando furious is the solo music-name of Ben Snaith since 2013. The moniker is drawn from Orlando furioso the 16th Century Italian Epic poem of the same name by Ludovico Ariosto. Inspiration also comes from the Virginia Woolf novel "Orlando," about a time-shifting, gender-fluid, isolated wanderer.

Ben positions Orlando furious as a shapeshifter taking precedent from the wide-reaching styles of artists like Bjork, Beck, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell and Jonathon Richman. A wildcard playing tricks yet stumbling over emotions, sincerely trying for human connection while meeting all the Cops in his Head.
