Ben Platt is well on his way to becoming a multi - platform superstar. 25 - year - old Star of Broadways Dear Evan Hansen is already three - fourths of the way to EGOT thanks to show success, landing a Tony for playing the title role in the musical, Grammy for his part in the soundtrack, and a Daytime Emmy for performing songs on the Today show. Hes already set to play the lead in Ryan Murphy's new Netflix series Politician and he has roles in the upcoming movies Run this Town and Broken Diamonds. But it is his debut solo album, Sing To Me Instead, where Platt really gets to introduce himself and he makes the most of the opportunity. He co - write all 12 of album tracks and nearly all of them feel like intensely personal insights into former relationships. On the first single, Bad Habit, Platt drives a piano ballad with a wide range of emotions and corresponding vocals that move from conversational to booming Broadway. He has moments where he fits next to Sam Smith, especially on the gospel - soul of Temporary Love, and even Adele, on Hurt Me Once, which Platt co - wrote with Eg White, who co - wrote Adeles breakthrough hit, Chasing Pavements. Those are times when Platt sounds most restrain, when he doesnt push into showy vocal heights that are generally required on Broadway. In more conventional pop singers ' hands, songs like dramatic, but idiosyncratic, ballads Better could be sure - fire pop hit. But the intensity Platt brings to lines like do you keep my sweater, sweater? Have you read my letter, letter? Is what makes the song undeniably his. Sweet, goofy Share Your Address, where Platt declare, I want the key to your house and I wanna be your emergency contact, feels authentically offbeat. Maybe Platt wants to add suave pop Star to his growing list of accomplishments someday, But, for now, his adorkable realness works just fine.
