Ben Knighten – All I Want

This is Knigten’s latest effort entitled All I Want (2011) and certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one artist from Colorado that brings to the table effective songwriting coupled with a feel-good musical vibe.

“The Dreams of You” sets the stage rather well for this CD.  It was a great intro piece which had me eager for what lied ahead.  All in all the whole CD is wonderfully simple and full of Earthy Folk and Americana moments. Each song extremely pure & full of variety. Musical overtones reminded me a bit of Tom Petty, Train and Jack Johnson. Knighten’s vocal presence is warm and inviting, and his band grooves well together.  Definitely some catchy tunes on here.

Conclusion:

This CD will simply make your day a brighter place. The strong suit of Knighten is how he feels comfortable letting it all hang out on every track. At the end of the CD you will find yourself inspired, invigorated & happier than you were 45 minutes prior.
