A self-taught musician, Benjamin grew up with melodies. Playing shows all over his home country of Sweden from a very young age, it was always clear to him that he was going to be an artist of some kind. Just turned 20 years old, Benjamin’s early influences would come by way of his parents – The Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder all instilling in him a natural ear for melody and musicianship.
For a couple of years, Benjamin decided to focus solely on his song writing, growing disillusioned with the showbiz side of the industry and briefly considering going full-time as a songwriter. However, following an extended period of time crafting alone in the studio, the young artist signed to TEN Music Group after being convinced that he should be an artist on his own. What followed was the kind of vindication you can’t prepare for – his first three singles “Good Lovin’”, “Fall In Love” and “Love You Again”, immediately going gold and platinum respectively.
To mention personal maturity in the same sentence as “emerging artist” seems a contradiction, but with Benjamin’s latest single release “Dance You Off” – and him representing Sweden in this year Eurovision Song Contest, it is undeniable that Benjamin has hit peaks and troughs that belie his age as much as it defines this new direction of slick, R&B pop that echoes of precocious talent and melodic artistry. With his anticipated debut album set to drop, it’s looking like Benjamin Ingrosso is going to be a name the wider world is going to get used to very soon.
