    Listen 2: Alec Benjamin  - By ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino...

    Okay, so we're happy to give you the next big thing in pop music.

    Get to know Alec Benjamin as soon as possible. He's a singer-songwriter, but his approach is nothing short of next level. He's got an astounding voice that reaches heavenly heights. His falsetto transfixes, and his lyrics volley from a whimsical playfulness into truly pensive poetry. That's what "Paper Crown" is. It's catchy, but it's also soothingly heartbreaking. His lyrical prowess remains impressive as does that voice.

    Moreover, beyond those "traditional" elements, he utilizes a tricked-out boombox adding a super cool live aesthetic and capturing the songs' striking production. Everything about Alec Benjamin is next level.

    You can hear "Paper Crown" on his newly launched web site, or below. You'll hear more from him and about him on ARTISTdirect.com soon as we're immensely excited!
