LJ Benet already has an interesting history; you may already recognise the name, but for the purposes of this feature, I’ll just focus on the music.
It’s a rousing blend of soul and pop that feels highly charged yet minimal and emotive. The vocal has a distinct uniqueness to it, and carries the lyrics throughout the song so beautifully.
“I just want to be the person that wrote songs that made you feel like you weren’t alone anymore. That you heard something, and for a moment, you paused and thought that for once there was another human that understood what you were going through. I don’t need to be famous to make music, I just know there’s people out there that don’t feel heard and understood and that’s enough.”
