Benjamin Marshall, a singer-songwriter based out of Columbus has relased a new single titled ‘Alone Out at Sea’. Ben say’s “Loneliness is quite a common topic, especially in these times with the marathon we are enduring in this pandemic. It’s easy to think that we can do life on our own, until moments like these, These challenging, unique, hopefully once in a lifetime moments that humble us and remind us how much we actually really need each other”.

The new single ‘Alone Out at Sea’ for me stands out from all the other tracks Ben has made, it has more of a slower and simple sound compared to his other work but equally as good. The single is full of great vocals and a simple yet catchy acoustic sound. There is something about the vocals that just grabs your attention and makes you listen to every word Ben sing’s. It has an acoustic sorrow with the combination of guitar with Ben’s vocals it’s just magical and a joy to listen to. It starts simply but builds and builds and is guaranteed to induce tears and awaken every hair on the back of your neck. I can imagine this song sounding great live especially in a small venue.

Overall another fantastic single which I cannot fault and I enjoyed listening to.
