Get Up On This With Jensen Karp: Alec Benjamin

Every week Jensen Karp gets us up on something new

November 21, 2018

Every week Jensen Karp brings our attention to something that we may not know about yet or something we may have overlooked in the past. 

Now it's time to "Get Up On This."

This week Jensen introduces us to an up and coming Pop Music sensation - Alec Benjamin.

Alec Benjamin is a 24 year old singer-songwriter from Phoenix Arizona. He moved to Los Angeles to attend USC and he recorded his first song in a dorm room. He is a talented musician who writes songs beyond his years with a mature tone and a beautiful voice. To build his fanbase Alec would perform in parking lots before Shawn Mendes concerts and would hand out business cards so people would have something to remember his performance. 

Alec's work ethic eventually paid off, he now has over 500,000 subscribers on his Youtube channel and he has a sold out show at The Roxy Theater in West Hollywood scheduled for December 7th. Listen to a few of the songs that Jensen played for us. They are filled with thoughts, emotions and personality, not your throw away Bubblegum pop.
