Let Me Down Slowly // Alec Benjamin (5/25/18)
After a long wait, Alec Benjamin has finally released a new single, Let Me Down Slowly. Words cannot explain my excitement when he announced this new song. I had the privilege of meeting Alec back in 2016 when he was touring with Call Me Karizma, and he is one of the sweetest, most genuine human beings I’ve ever met on tour. I haven’t seen him in almost two years, but he continued to be so kind and caring through our social media interactions. Not only is he an incredible person, but he is an insanely talented singer and songwriter. I became a fan from watching him perform, where his talent really stood out. Each of his songs (most of which are on YouTube) tell a story, and his voice ties the whole thing together.
Let Me Down Slowly is no different. The song tells a story, his songwriting ability shines through, and he has such a unique and soothing voice that just fits into the song. I’m so happy to hear something new from Alec, and (hopefully) new music means new tour? Please? Since 2016, I have been dying to work for Alec, so Alec, buddy, homie, I’ll sell your merch!
Alec is definitely a pop-artist, but I feel as though anyone could really enjoy his music. Give him a chance, he really deserves it.
