Ben Tennyson is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Akron OH who uses a mix of live instruments and MIDI to create a rock-like sound authentic to him. His latest release, “Gypsy Soul” is a perfect example of this sound. With almost every song being unique from the last Ben Tennyson is constantly trying to change the game and his style to create something new that stands out above other artists. “I use to struggle to write upbeat/ happy style stuff and I see this song as a big progression in my ability to write,” says Tennyson. “When I perform with just my acoustic, this song really stands out with the loud power it brings, although it does really stand out in a chill coffee shop haha.“
“Gypsy Soul” has been a work in progress for quite some time. “This song had a long process of getting made because I wanted it to be as close to perfect as possible,” explains Tennyson. “It’s my favorite song I ever wrote. I wrote it years ago and it is how I open up every show. We spent at least a year in the studio slowly putting this together and perfecting it.”
For the track, Tennyson again tapped producer Mike Villegas to help form the song. “Without his help, this song wouldn’t sound as great as it does.” The single is now available across all major streaming platforms. Listen to “Gypsy Soul” on SPOTIFY (hyperlink) or watch the video on YouTube below.
Tennyson plans to release new singles monthly for the rest of the year. “Anyone who enjoys Gypsy Soul should stay tuned because there is more to come that will be a mix of upbeat energy-filled songs similar to Gypsy Soul and many other styles and sounds. The goal is to always deliver something unique from one another while creating something I hope people find engaging.”
