February 1st is a definitely a good day. Tony, Grammy, and Daytime Emmy Award winner, my Broadway icon, Ben Platt drops two singles today from his much awaited debut album Sing to Me Instead, which will be released in full on March 29.
Needless to say, the two songs entitled “Bad Habit” and “Ease My Mind” are absolutely sensational. This sneak peek gave us a taste of what to anticipate from Ben’s launching album. A great blend of soul, pop and musical theatre with a strong flare of gospel. His voice has matured so much, and is ruthlessly expressive (which is his trademark I guess).
His melismas are brave and are in the right places. His vibratos are harsh! I am almost at a loss for words, and his music brings me to a whole new dimension. I simply cannot wait to listen to the complete work!
Ben Platt, you have my heart, my respect and utmost admiration. Indeed, this is a start of something incredible for him and his avid fans and supporters all over world.
