Eddie Benjamin (Vol. 1/Epic)
4/15/21

WHAT IT IS: Rotating between an arsenal of instruments with punchy proficiency and attention-grabbing vocals, Eddie Benjamin brings kaleidoscopic color to the pop realm. The 19-year-old Australia-born, L.A.-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer, who’s been playing in jazz clubs since he was in grade school with musicians twice his age, sparked an online buzz after sharing covers. Generating millions of views, the viral uploads caught the attention of fellow Australian Sia, resulting in the rising star’s move to L.A., where he’s been working on major releases. A secret weapon for Sia—who’s featured on his single “Diamond Eyes”—Meghan Trainor, Ryan Tedder, Labrinth and others, Benjamin also earned a co-sign from Justin Bieber, who dubbed him “the next generation.” With his debut EP, Emotional, Benjamin is ready to fully introduce himself to the world.
