Ben Knight and The Welldiggers
Ben Knight plays American music. Kentucky Country music. A noble homage to generations of toil and progress. He and his band the Welldiggers bring new and original tunes that catch your attention with equal parts nostalgia and intrigue.

“To me, it’s all about the live show. I think that’s what drew me to music in the first place — the electricity in the room at a really good live show,” Knight says. “While a live show is a place to showcase musicianship and performing, I think an album is the place to showcase songwriting — being able to appreciate the lyrical content, how the words are arranged, the cadence. The biggest thing for me, after it’s done, after I’ve written it, is whether or not I give a shit about the people I’m talking about in the song — whether they’re characters or whether they’re myself.”

These are the songs of blue-collar workers, hard-luck cases and folks for whom being called a ne'er-do-well would be a step up the social ladder. Everything that's neat and tidy here gets scuffed up; every sentimental note meets a conflicted lyric or dissonant chord; every soothsayer gets a busted lip.
