Over the past few years, Eddie Benjamin has set the stage for his break-out. After the release of his 2021 debut EP 'Emotional', the wunderkind kicked off 2022 with the single ‘Weatherman’, which garnered attention from publications like Rolling Stone and was dubbed “one of the best songs of the year so far” by TIME. It's a single that has been streamed over 36 million times, hit the Spotify Viral (US) chart, and became a top 10 "used song" on TikTok.
Today, Eddie is sharing the full 'Weatherman' EP, capturing eight textured and wonderfully evocative songs including previously released singles ‘Weatherman’, ‘Only You’ Ft. Alessia Cara, ‘All For Nothing’ and ‘Stargirl’.
Rotating between an arsenal of instruments with punchy proficiency and singing with spotlight-grabbing swagger, Eddie brings kaleidoscopic color to popular music. Whether nimbly slapping out a fleet-fingered bass groove or belting on an arena stage, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer channels fresh fire through a classic approach.
While he might only be 20-years-old, Eddie harks back to a live instrument-laden sound that’s equally heavy on classic songwriting, groove, hair-raising atmosphere, and feeling. His music appeals to the head, the hips, and the heart all at once. Barely a teenager, he wowed local jazz haunts in his native Bondi Beach, Australia and headlined a weekly residency at a nightclub before developing an international following by posting viral covers on social media., where he caught the attention of other musicians like fellow Australian native, Sia. Moving to Los Angeles shortly after, he found himself in the studio working on major releases behind-the-scenes. He has quietly become the ultimate “secret weapon” for some of the biggest superstars in the world like Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes, and more, even writing with the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire.
Eddie notably spent 2022 on the road touring alongside Justin Bieber in arenas around the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, and kicked off 2023 with his first-ever headlining shows at Los Angeles’ Moroccan Lounge and New York’s Baby’s All Right. Known for his prodigious musicianship and energetic performance—he can hit a guitar lick and do a back flip within the same measure—his live show has received critical praise, with GRAMMY.com even stating, “obvious from his cadence performing live, his musical influences include legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix.”
