British r&b crooner Joshua Benjamin will be back with his smouldering single Here’s To You, awaited on all streaming platforms on February 18 , 2021 .
A jack-of-all-trades, Joshua Benjamin is a seasoned singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and performer who has been winning over audiences since his earliest recordings with OMG Collective. Mixing vintage blue-eyed soul with forward-thinking production, the London-based artist pens true life stories, instilled with raw emotion and a deep desire to provide comfort in a chaotic world. Stemming from a past situation, his new down-tempo Here’s To You demonstrates both sensuality and sensitivity through his magnetic vocals, softly underlined by an atmospheric, electronic-textured soundscape that instantly elevates the listener’s spirit and opens the door to new possibilities. “This song speaks to all of the times I was left in the dark, and for those who are still left in the dark, he reveals. I went through this in a relationship, in terms of communication and emotionally. Sometimes, when there’s a breakdown in connection between two people, I feel that it allows space for darkness and negativity to enter. This track feels like an ode to these times and a release of its hold on me, knowing that it’s been something I’ve learnt from and something that has allowed me to grow and move forward in my life. For anyone in a similar situation, make a decision, take the leap and grow in whichever direction you wish to take.”
Written and produced alongside long-time collaborators Haychkai and Manual Garay, Here’s To You is the first of many songs set for release in 2021, leaving Joshua Benjamin dreaming about finding his way to even more hearts of r&b fans after breaking through a 100K-streams milestone last year.
