The American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin was born in Phoenix, Arizona on May 28, 1994, and has built up a career in music through sheer persistence. After leaving school, he was signed to Columbia Records and suffered the disappointment of being dropped shortly after recording his debut album. With renewed gusto, Benjamin embarked upon a relentless round of self promotion to gain exposure for his music. Alec Benjamin's tireless promotion slowly began to bring results when his breakthrough single, 2018's “Let Me Down Slowly,” charted well in Europe, reaching the Top 40 in several countries and earning platinum certification. As well as gaining recognition for his own material, Benjamin also built a reputation as a jobbing songwriter and has written songs for the well-known US rapper Jon Bellion. After breaking into the Billboard 200 with his 2019 mixtape Narrated for You, Alec Benjamin finally released his self-produced debut album, These Two Windows, in 2020. The album was followed by the 2021 singles “The Way You Felt” and “Change My Clothes” featuring Dream which, despite not charting in the US, peaked at Number 67 in the UK.
