Chris Knight: Real Music

image from www.cmt.com
I usually don't write about music; particularly not by artists that Skyline Music, the booking agency that I run, represents. Hypebot is much more about the music business and tech, but occasionally something moves me and I want to share it.

Last night, I saw Chris Knight perform as an acoustic duo at the wonderfully intimate Kirk Avenue Music Hall in our newly adopted home of Roanoke, VA.  Americana / outlaw country twang is usually not my thang, but Chris Knight won me over…bigtime.

If I had to describe him in two words, it would be “redneck Dylan”. He sings about the rural workingman’s hard life at a time when earning a living with your hands is more difficult than ever. But his lyrics transcend the normal songwriting rhymes to reach the level of poetry and his stage demeanor matches the songs –  both rough edges and sharp wit; ready for a fight and ready to extend a hand – all at the same time. Given the right breaks; Chris Knight could be an icon. Check him out.
