Benjamin Dakota Rogers makes his highly anticipated return to the folk world
with his brand new single, Better by Now, stripping the genre down to its core and
emotionally charging it with the raw human experience that can only be delivered
from the honesty and grit of a farm boy’s hands. Hailing from the countryside of
rural Ontario, Benjamin funnels his penchant for starry nights and nostalgia into
his stylized folk sound, reaching far beyond to include influences of roots, blues
and country music.
Singer/songwriter. Internationally-renowned guitarist. Producer. Solo artist.
A lifelong musician, there are few roles Ariel Posen hasn’t played.
Although born in Winnipeg, Posen spent much of his childhood on the road, traveling from show to show with his musician parents. He began playing guitar at 9 years old, kicking off a career that eventually found him traveling the globe for his own gigs, including shows as a member of the Juno Award winning, roots-rock band The Bros. Landreth. Several years later, Posen began working on an album of his own, tracking his new songs in the same studio in which his parents once recorded their albums.
The LYNNeS are Canadian heartbreak poets Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson. The two songwriters are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off and on over the past 10 years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson’s albums (River of Sand, 2014 and 7 Deadly Spins, 2015). For THE LYNNeS songs are what matter the most, and their debut album “Heartbreak Song For The Radio” pairs hauntingly gritty lyrics with tight vocal harmonies.
The duo adopted an old school approach to recording their album, choosing to record to tape and recording all the bed tracks and many of the vocal and acoustic guitar parts live off the floor at Little Bullhorn Studio.
