2016 saw his debut release as an exclusive artist and was immediately acclaimed by Billboard - “U" was premiered as an enchanting sonic and visual experience. A pop gem that showcases Alessi's hyper-clear and far-reaching vocals, declared Culture Collide. Ben’s sound has been gobbling up new listeners, from blogs to Spotify. And, according to Deli Magazine, one should expect those listeners to grow, fast, …his sound is tailor-made for people looking for that elusive, heart-pumping mix of joy and sadness that only seems to surface when big music, like his, is performed to big crowds.
The prediction has come true. As Ben marches through 2017 dropping singles “Only” and “Lose It” and finally his EP PRSSR, he has drawn press, listeners, and followers with certain streams now hitting the millions. With his solo career flying forward, one might miss Ben’s rising career as a writer and producer - songs he has created for others have been dropping globally, charting on the Virals and even landing on many foreign national radio stations.
