Benjamin Kheng is a Singaporean musician, actor, and writer who made his debut as part of local pop-quartet The Sam Willows.
In November 2019, he officially returned to music after a year-long break with his first solo single Wicked. He has since steadily released two more singles Find Me and Lovers Forever culminating towards his debut EP release A Sea That Never Stops in June 2020. Benjamin is always sincere in his music, and his latest EP is no exception. He explores life and love under the lens of both sincerity and cynicism, crying while celebrating the experiences that make us human. Benjamin’s releases have rewarded him with a nomination for MTV EMA’s Best Southeast Asia Act in 2020, representing Singapore in the highly-anticipated annual award show.
Ben returns with a spirited new single Fresh Feelings (feat. J.Sheon) featuring R&B artist J.Sheon in Jan, this year. Building upon his work in ‘A Sea That Never Stops’, the production is daring and wildly theatrical, pulling from Benjamin’s inspirations of gospel choir and musical theater tradition with glossy piano chords and layered harmonies. Over the upcoming months, expect to see more exciting collaborations and releases by Benjamin as he works on new music to be released in 2021.
