Chris Knight: Real Music
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.
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.
