Be it behind the keys, behind the scenes or on every TV screen nationwide, Sweden’s Benjamin Ingrosso has turned many a head with his contemporary twist of polished pop tones and soulful performance bravado.
Turning his early proficiency in song writing towards a focus on original music back in 2015, the past three years have seen the 20-year-old artist garner national admiration, critical acclaim and millions of streams alike. The years ahead points to a well-oiled peak in his musical output and some much deserved international acknowledgement for his widespread talents.
Born in Sweden on the outskirts of Stockholm and raised with a strong tie to his Italian heritage, it didn’t take long for Benjamin to find his feet within the world of entertainment. The self-trained pianist and guitarist spent his early childhood crafting his ear and eye for songmanship. It served him well, for by the age of nine he had already penned his first gold certified hit.
Borrowing inspiration from the likes of Hall & Oates, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson along the way, his commitment to the balance of modern and traditional pop hallmarks has sparked a lifelong commitment to writing, branding and performing powerful music. For him, it is an exercise in creative freedom few generations before him have been able to experience. "Artists are more free than ever before," he explains. "There’s a lot more ways to show the world what you’re all about. I don’t want to just be an artist. I want to be an entertainer. The number has to be something you really want to see and hear. It’s an experience that can play with all the senses."
Right now Benjamin is one of Sweden’s most popular male pop-artists. With over 25 million Spotify streams and reaching 1x Platinum and 3x Gold with his singles, Benjamin Ingrosso is the one to watch in 2018. Having a lit spark over in Scandinavia with his breakthrough last year, his undeniable pop sensibility and genuine musicality spread like wildfire through the rest of Europe with infectious hits such as Good Lovin', Do You Think About Me and One More Time.
Benjamin’s Dance You Off does exactly what the title suggest, a three minute groove heavy workout that turns a foot tap into a somersault by the first chorus. As the heat intensifies towards the US, Benjamin is also putting the finishing touches on his first album with renewed hit makers Fernando Garibay (Lady Gaga, Sia), Omega (Jason Derulo, Daya) and Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Borns).
As his commitment to making timeless tunes continues to fuel sleepless nights in the studio, the arsenal of new music ahead is a testament to the fact that Benjamin is unwilling to rest on the laurels of the last hit. Set to consistently channel a customized stamp that falls far for the stereotypical world of Swedish pop music, 2018 promises to be a year of liberating steps for the soul, spirit and swagger Benjamin Ingrosso is throwing into the ring.
