Ben de la Cour
Original and thought provoking, a lyrical fierceness; storyteller extraordinaire.
“Telling stories with sharp lyrics over a catchy tune may be a neglected art these days, but nobody’s working harder than de la Cour to push that envelope.”
-New York Music Daily
“…a gifted troubadour who is able to impart a downtrodden wisdom of the times.”
Sara Vale, Agent
Shadow Land shimmers. It’s both terrifying and soothing – suffused with honesty, craft and a rare soul-baring fearlessness but with enough surprises to keep the listener guessing. It gets down and dirty with electric guitar but also features Ben’s diffident fingerpicking in quieter moments. Ultimately, it is a darkly beautiful meditation on what it means to be human. Ben’s voice renders raw emotion with authority as he recounts tales of suspicious characters, lost love, murder, bank robbers, suicide and mental illness against a backdrop of a dark and haunted America.
