Benjamin Carter‘s new six-song EP Self_Portrait Vol 1 is finally here. To give you a taste of the whole compilation, we are sharing one of the songs, “Rest Easy”. This is a sublime piece of work that fully highlights the Washington, DC-based, Caymanian-American artist and multi-instrumentalist’s deeply emotive songwriting; Benjamin usually composes songs that touch on delicate-yet-relatable topics such as love versus heartache, addiction and race issues.
With vocals that are stretched enough to match the power in the lyrics, “Rest Easy” feels quite gripping. Benjamin Carter has accompanied the song with a simple outdoor-performance video of the song’s acoustic version. Watch the clip below.
