And based on his previous work, we can expect nothing less than a masterpiece that touches our hearts and souls.
One of the unique allures of Benford’s music is that it is always invitingly familiar and infectious. He pours layers of cascading piano melodies amidst lavish guitar and keyboard harmonies and intricately textured percussion and rhythms, which blend together to create a magical experience.
Benford’s passion for jazz began at a young age when he wrote his first hit song, “Michelle,” for jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis at the age of sixteen. He continued to write hit after hit, earning him a well-deserved title as the “Melody Man” while topping charts in multiple genres for superstars.
In recent years, Benford has been drawn back to his roots, jazz and instrumental R&B, sparking collaborations with Grammy-winning guitarist Norman Brown and eight-time Grammy nominated saxophonist Gerald Albright. Both artists are among the luminaries who will appear on Benford’s debut album, “My Favorite Moments,” which is slated to drop next February.
In conclusion, it is safe to say that Vassal Benford’s upcoming album “Melody Man” will be a soulful journey that you wouldn’t want to miss. Make sure to keep your eyes and ears open for his latest single, “Dedication Song,” when it drops this August on all major platforms.
