Our thoughts about the song :

We're not going to hide it, we've been following Ben Wylen on social media for a few months now. Listening to his work, watching his live takes. He was definitely under our radar, as we knew that he could surprise us. We were just waiting for the explosion of emotions that offers artists a stint at Indie Music Center. And here it is. Ben is actually working on a great project: a full-length album, due to release on November 6. And he drops a new song every month. Perfect teasing. And this song really spoke to our hearts, besides speaking to our ears. Opening on a warm piano and a soft verse, the song takes all its dimension in the chorus. Ben lets go everything. And his vocals are... Impressive! And unexpected! Heartbreaking lyrics, delicately deposited on a powerful and catchy melody, the magic works. You may surprise yourself to singalong starting the second chorus. We won't tell you everything now, and we strongly encourage you to listen to this gem to discover an amazing vocal performance on the final part of the song, strengthened by an incredible electric guitar. And if you love to get chills while listening to music, you will enjoy this song among other gems in our "Powerful Emotions & Chills" Spotify playlist.

Ben Wylen's point of view :

When I was writing this song, I was far away from my girlfriend in England and it became increasingly challenging to explain to her what I was doing there. I was off following my dreams but she was at home on the sidelines. While I knew she believed in me, I felt I had to prove to her that I was the man she thought me to be. I just wanted her to put herself in my shoes and understand why I was so far from home. I guess in the process I ended up putting myself in her shoes instead.

Biography:

Ben Wylen's debut solo album ‘People Say’ is a gorgeous, confessional 12-track record defiant in the face of what the whispers say, and rules others think people have to live by. It follows in the footsteps of the heartrending and inspirational songwriting of Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and Bob Dylan, with nods to modern artists like Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Hozier. A trip to London resulted in a chance meeting with producer Danton Supple (Coldplay, Morrissey, U2), with the pair eventually heading into London’s State Of The Ark Studios to record the songs together. They made a good fit: Wylen providing the gut wrenching, emotional guidance to the songs and Supple’s expert production work helping to realize these songs’ wonderful potential. Members of Elbow (drummer Richard Jupp) and Starsailor (bassist James Steflox), string arranger Audrey Riley (The Cure, The Smiths, Smashing Pumpkins) and Grammy Award winning mixing engineer Steve Fitzmaurice (Sam Smith, Lewis Capaldi) helped flesh out the album to its gorgeous state. Each song on the album will be released on the first Friday of each month, leading up to the full album "People Say" on Nov 6th, 2020.
