Benson Boone uses his sensitive, intimate music to work through his toughest emotions. He wrote the meditative pop songs on his debut EP, Walk Me Home…, as a way of documenting his hopes, fears, and insecurities as a young artist finding his footing in the music industry, and as a person growing into his own in the public eye. “Writing these songs brought me to where I am now,” he says. “It’s where I really want to be.”
When Boone started posting on social media and auditioned for American Idol. He blew the judges away and moved forward in the competition, but ultimately bowed out to hone his craft. The very next week, Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds reached out via Instagram and invited him to Las Vegas. “I spent the next four days working with him,” he remembers. Reynolds was so impressed that he signed Boone to his Night Street Records.
Now with his EP out, Boone is turning his focus to his live set. He wants to share all of himself, and he hopes that the songs that helped him grow can help others do so too.
