HEARTBEAT

Frequency Fusion, PRIME

 

Let's make up for lost time

Hold your body close to mine

Your palm reads my love line

When you and I align

 

Seduced by your love song
Lost in the rhythm and the beat

On your chest my insecurities disappear

 

Baby I'm sleepin'

With your heartbeat as my pillow

Baby I'm sleepin'

On your rhythm tonight

 

For a lifetime

Paul Benedict

VOCALIST|songwriter

Paul Benedict, the vocalist and songwriter for PRIME, was raised in New York City. He began singing at age 3 and playing the piano at age 7. His natural talent got him enlisted in many musicals throughout his youth, culminating in his admission to the acclaimed LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts. After high school, Paul attended college and began pursuing his dream. In 2010, he collaborated with Bryan Christopher on their aforementioned first album, and in early 2014, on the creation of PRIME.

 

Paul Benedict, born in The Philippines and raised in New York, is of Filipino, Chinese, and Spanish descent. He has always seen himself as a "citizen of the world," a world that holds music as its common language. He is eternally grateful to the people that have allowed his music to become his PRIME mode of expression.

 

Top influences include: Thom Yorke, Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Matthew Bellamy, and Michael Jackson.

Bryan Christopher

Instrumentalist|songwriter

Born and raised on the eastern border of New York City, Bryan Christopher is the instrumentalist and songwriter for PRIME. Bryan was first introduced to music in grade school where he proved to be a very gifted saxophonist. He began experimenting with songwriting after teaching himself the piano. A few years later, he discovered his main affection - the guitar. His favorite axe is the Gibson Firebird.

 

A stroke of fate led Bryan into the music industry full-time, when he was forced to quit university. His love for music was reinvigorated, and he strove to perfect his craft. He joined forces with Paul in 2010, and the two created PRIME in early 2014.

 

Top influences include: Jeff Buckley, Bach, John Lennon, Slash, Billy Joel, and George Gershwin.

Formed at the dawn of 2014, PRIME is a NYC-based duo comprised of vocalist and songwriter Paul Benedict, and instrumentalist and songwriter Bryan Christopher.

 

The duo first met in 2010 when Paul was holding open guitar auditions for his project - Dexter’s Kin. Paul & Bryan quickly hit it off and in 2011, they self-released their first album. Their hit single, “Spill Out The Lies,” gained extensive internet exposure and exceeded 120,000 plays on YouTube. After a few productive years of playing establishments across the Tri-State area, Paul and Bryan set out to refine and strengthen their vision. Shortly thereafter, PRIME was born.

The fully realized PRIME takes its inspiration from the atmosphere and diversity of the metropolitan landscape. PRIME blends a score of melodic vocals, airy synths, edgy guitars, and a dynamic low end pulse.

 

PRIME will debut their first EP this May, followed by a full-length album in the late Summer of 2014. Both albums will be produced by Natasha Knight (Jane Blaze) of Frequency Fusion Productions.
