For his second album Strong Man's Address to the Circus Crowd, Brantford's Benjamin Dakota Rogers has enhanced his alt-folk style with amazing production. It's fuller and superbly well-crafted.
Benjamin's voice has a lot of character and shines through on every track. He also wields a harmonica, fiddle, guitar and mandolin to create a lavish, warm sound. Americana, folk, pop, rock, classical and many other elements filter though for a wonderful, unique sound. There are even two incredible spoken word pieces.
Assisting the singer/songwriter are two very talented musicians: Randy Solski (percussion, keyboard, guitar and bass) and Rebekah Hawker (harmonies)
So, if you're looking for music with substance pick up a CD at his fabulous live shows or download the album using iTunes or cdbaby.
