Trying to convince yourself that you are better off without a certain someone, post-breakup, is the name of the game on singer-songwriter Ben Provencial’s latest song.

“Better Off” is a somber ballad beautifully executed by the Atlanta-born musician’s emotive lyrics and impressive vocal range. Ben’s voice possesses a melodic tone that toggles effortlessly between soft and sulky to a richness and depth that commands attention. The simplicity of mostly piano notes and subtle instrumentals set the perfect background to relish in the emotionality on display.

The 28 year old indie-pop artist began his career as a finalist in Guitar Center’s annual singer-songwriter competition. Ben Provencial is also a skilled guitarist (playing since the age of 12) who teaches guitar lessons in his spare time.
