  Not A Moment Too Soon  
  Cherries Records showcases the first flight of new, hot talent BENJAMIN with the label's fourth 7" release, 'Love Is Gonna Let You Down b/w Not A Moment Too Soon'.

Windy City singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Pirani's fondness for '80s soul is the driving force behind the slick panache of CH-004. He cites Fatback Band producers Bill Curtis and Gerry Thomas as prime influences, and as such, the single contains two jams that channel the synth chic of the time, while adding a signature contemporary touch.

A-side 'Love Is Gonna Let You Down' sets plaintive vocals, keys and ripping guitar work at an addictive mid-tempo pace over reverb-heavy drum machine, all while exuding an inspiring & romantic melody. The slower Not A Moment Too Soon features panned synth stabs and lush, layered keys, the quad bumping as BENJAMIN testifies to love's onset. "We'll travel to the heights of lovers' ecstasy", he promises a lucky lady, before climaxing with a rapturous axe burst. Two stand out efforts - entirely performed and produced by the artist - that are guaranteed to bang in the club, car or crib.

ABOUT BENJAMIN

"I have a bit of genuine nostalgia for that period of music," BENJAMIN muses wistfully, helping illuminate the audacious Jheri curl uptopianism of his formidable debut. Although, funk is just one color in this shining star's musical palette. BENJAMIN also plays guitar and sings in Chicago Stone Lightning Band, a heavy blues rock affair who recently released an eponymous LP. He is also a founder of Chicago's northern soul music staple Windy City Soul Club. This broad scope of activity rests in solid foundation as BENJAMIN is from a family of pros. His mother's opera career ran from the '60s to the '80s, while his father played piano on Terry Callier's timeless 1972 LP 'Occasional Rain', as well as alongside leading lights of Chicago soul such as Charles Stephney and Minnie Ripperton. Stay tuned as this release is just a brief glimpse into the deep musical vaults of BENJAMIN.
