Electro-Soul Artist on the rise: Ben Alessi

Electro-Soul Artist on the rise: Ben Alessi

Though Ben Alessi has mostly made his name impressing audiences at some of NYC's medium-sized venues, his music is the kind you could imagine reverberating through crowds at Governor's Ball one day. This isn't just because his potent mix of electropop and r&b is catchy and inventive. It's also because his sound, mixing soulful vocals, euphoric hooks and groovy beats, 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. You can listen to his latest single, "ONLY," below, and get a taste. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber
