Eddie Benjamin Breaking Down Boundaries With Debut EP “Emotional” and Music Video for “Speechless” Starring Maddie Ziegler
Alongside the EP release, Eddie premiered the music video for the song “Speechless” earlier today. The clip is directed by Audrey Ellis Fox (Rina Sawayama, My Chemical Romance) and co-stars Maddie Ziegler. It unveils a show-stopping choreographed interpretation of the meditative ballad’s sparse sonics and soulful lyrics.
The new EP Strutting along on a wild wah-drenched riff, it culminates on the instantly catchy chant, “You’re making me emotional, and I don’t get emotional.” Then, there’s “Diamond Eyes” with Sia.
Together, their voices entwine in a fascinating and fiery call-and-response as the hook glows brightly. Additionally, he puts his own spin on the Amy Winehouse classic “Back To Black.” Just last week, Eddie revealed an intimate live performance video of the cover, recorded in New York. Sitting alone at piano solo in the accompanying performance, his dynamic and enthralling vocals take center stage.
Eddie Benjamin continues to leave a mark and receive critical praise for his spellbinding take on pop. In February, he revealed his first-ever official music video for the stand-alone single “Running Away From Home”.
