Jake Benjamin

Near the end of his life, Vincent Van Gogh wrote, “I have put my heart and soul into my work and have lost my mind in the process.” Those words beg the question: what does one do when the inspiration is gone?

This sentiment resonated with indie-alternative artist Jake Benjamin. Jake was at a personal and artistic crossroads when he wrote his latest body of work, collectively known as Broken Stars. This artistically adventurous and boldly vulnerable opus was inspired by reading The Letters of Vincent van Gogh, a collection of correspondences from Van Gogh to his brother, Theo.

“I decided that the songs on this record should tie into themes of the psyche and the human spirit,” the NYC-based artist details. “Some of the songs were written from famous artists’ quotes, and others were written from my own experiences with anxiety, depression, relationships, and sexuality.” He continues: “Today, I’m open to showing all the aspects of my life, including my queerness.”

This project will be released in a series of installments leading up to a full-length LP.
