Alec Benjamin, the gifted singer songwriter from Phoenix, Arizona who’s collaborated with the likes of Jon Bellion, Matisyahu, Jamie Scott, and many others in the past, is back with a tenderly stirring demo named The Knife in my Back. This stripped back and intimate ballad is as bittersweet as they come. It’s a gently affecting caress and a poignant lullaby. The acoustic pop demo carries a hint of urban pop in its mellow cadence and aching strums. The Knife in my Back is a heartrending yet cozy endearing companion on these frozen winter days.

Out of Phoenix, Arizona rises a 22 year old singer songwriter named Alec Benjamin, and he has me enthralled with his wistful pop song End Of The Summer. There’s a certain sadness about the end of summer. A chapter must end, its marvelous memories and cherished relationships cut abruptly short. Though we must move on into the growing cold of Autumn, it’s hard not to dwell on the past. The torment of ‘what ifs’ imprison both mind and heart. It’s those emotions that Alec Benjamin captures so well with the R&B influenced electronic pop on the musician’s sleek saccharine tune. End Of The Summer is available now from iTunes.
