“PEI Waltz”

By Benny Von

Benny Von, an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in Charlottetown, PEI, released his first single “PEI Waltz” on January 10.

Inspired by City and Color, Marcus Mumford and hip-hop artists like Watsky and Shad for their introspective and commentative lyrics, Benny’s first single is a dance across his home province of Prince Edward Island, visiting three locations with significant meaning. 

Though the lyrics briefly touch on a lost romance, the thread of “PEI Waltz” is one of growth and a resignment to the knowledge that life barrels ahead at 60 minutes an hour whether one is ready for it or not.

The single artwork was designed by AnnaMaria MacDonald.
