Benjamin Kheng is a Singaporean musician, actor, host, writer and former national swimmer.
In 2012, he made his debut into the industry back in 2012 as one of the founding members of popular local pop-quartet – The Sam Willows. The group has performed globally at the SXSW Festival in Austin, the Canadian Music Festival in Toronto, MU:CON and Zandari Festa in Seoul, the Singapore F1 Grand Prix 2013 & 2014, and the Western Australian Music Festival in Perth. In November 2019, he officially returned to music after a year-long break with the release of his first solo single ‘Wicked.’
Benjamin’s body of work stretches beyond music, into the world of acting. His breadth is displayed in the roles he is tipped to play - from leading man of choice such as Romeo in Romeo & Juliet (Toy Factory) to recruit Ken Chow in the musical adaptation of local movie blockbuster Ah Boys To Men: The Musical (Running Into The Sun). He is also one half of the acclaimed comedy sketch series The BenZi Project, garnering over 2.2 million views on YouTube in less than a year since its inception.
An advocate for youth and social causes, Benjamin has also been invited to speak at TEDxYouth@Singapore to share his experience in overcoming depression and anxiety disorder with synesthesia.
