Singer-Songwriter Alec Benjamin

Artist 101: Alec Benjamin

Alec Benjamin is the 23 year old singer song-writer from Phoenix, Arizona, who is slowly but surely making his mark on the music industry.

Armed with a guitar and a skateboard, Alec’s innocent vocals are reminiscent of a much more stripped back Owl City or The Postal Service.  It is his simple and honest approach to songwriting, accompanied by lo-fi beats which take the listener on a journey through some of Alec’s real life experiences.  In many ways, this young musician has created his own unique style of music, as you will not find another artist who sounds like him.

So let’s get down to business and find out a little more about our boy Alec, shall we?
