The music caught my attention
“The music caught my attention, it seemed to have a timeless quality about it as well as the lyrics and vocal performance. The more I listened to Ben’s tracks, the more I thought they could be on any classic rock station back in the 60’s or 70’s.”
‘Letters from the Sky’, an acoustic version featured on YouTube has been viewed over 4 million times worldwide. Benjamin worked with acclaimed producer Brett Ratner who co-produced albums for James Morrison (“Undiscovered”), Jeff Buckley (“Grace”) and Natalie Imbruglia (“Left of Self Centered”, “White Lilies Island”). He also wrote songs for Celine Dion’s multi-platinum album Falling into You and Marianne Faithfull’s “A Perfect Stranger”.
Brett Ratner said about Benjamin, “if you wrote a script for the next Bob Dylan… it might come in the guise of Ben Jaiheri.”
In October 2012, Benjamin was invited to perform at ‘SONAR’ one of Europe’s biggest music industry events that takes place annually in Barcelona Spain and showcases the worlds newest electronic music talent. In 2013 Ben made a new big impact when his song ‘Love from Above’ was selected as iTunes London/Europe Backstage Pass Single Of The Week – showcasing some of London’s Best Amateur Artists. On February 22nd 2014, VH1 UK announced their Next Big Artist Competition on MTV which included over 100 unsigned artists who entered their video for a chance to win a prize of £10,000 and the opportunity to be played on major UK TV networks. Benjamin was one of four artists selected to compete with each other every week live on air until there were only two finalists left – from those two finalists the winner will be revealed on March 14th 2014 at VH1s headquarters in London , which is where he will also perform live for BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens show.
In 2015, Benjamin started a partnership with music licensing company Zync Music and released his first official material in over 5 years (he was signed to Sony BMG from 2009-2011). The new song ‘Before She Comes’ has been featured in the worldwide launch trailer for Electronic Arts’s video game “Mirror’s Edge Catalyst” which premiered at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2016.
