About Alec Benjamin

Alec Benjamin is an American pop singer and songwriter from Arizona. After releasing a mixtape EP called America in 2013, he recorded his debut single, "Paper Crown," in his dorm room at the University of Southern California, self-releasing it in 2014. He followed it in 2016 with a stream of songs, including "The Water Fountain," "End of the Summer," and "I Built a Friend," all featuring his smooth, youthful vocals and keyboard-based arrangements. That same year, a song he co-wrote with Jon Bellion, "New York Soul, Pt. 2," appeared on Bellion's album The Human Condition. The single "Let Me Down Slowly" featuring Alessia Cara arrived in 2018, followed later that year by a full-length mixtape, Narrated for You. Benjamin's performance of the song in January 2019 on The Late Late Show with James Corden further raised his profile, and he released a steady stream of singles in the build-up to his 2020 debut album proper, These Two Windows. ~ Marcy Donelson
