AEG Presents is excited to announce that acclaimed singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin will launch his first-ever Caught In The Middle World Tour in Hong Kong at This Town Needs on August 14th and perform his first Singapore concert at The Pavilion on August 20th following a showcase gig last Fall.
Since the release of his critically-acclaimed debut mixtape NARRATED FOR YOU last November, Alec Benjamin’s star has continued to rise without any signs of slowing down. The rising artist – who has racked up over 650 million global streams – kicked off 2019 with his US television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, performing his now RIAA platinum-certified single “Let Me Down Slowly.” That same day began with the release of the striking updated version of “Let Me Down Slowly” featuring Alessia Cara. Upon release, the duet quickly received rave reviews with ROLLING STONE hailing, “Benjamin and Cara’s voices meld together on the hypnotic pop tune as they reflect on vulnerability and the fear of losing a good relationship. Cara’s contribution is a bit of soulful accentuation to the cooler tones of Benjamin’s voice as she tackles the second verse and chorus.” Benjamin went on to enter the Billboard Hot 100 with “Let Me Down Slowly (Feat. Alessia Cara)” and graced the cover of Spotify’s esteemed Pop Rising playlist.
NARRATED FOR YOU, Benjamin’s extraordinary debut mixtape has received praise from fans and critics alike, with both The New York Times and TIME applauding fan favorite “The Water Fountain” on release day. Alec’s compelling companion visuals for mixtape tracks “Let Me Down Slowly,” “If We Have Each Other,” and “Boy In The Bubble” has amassed over 36 million collective views on YouTube. In addition to love from fans and critics, Benjamin has begun to garner support from other musicians, including Billie Eilish, Bryson Tiller, Kevin Abstract and more.
