Ben de la Cour, Nashville singer-songwriter

Nashville singer-songwriter Ben de la Cour has a uniquely modern, haunting, and sometimes dark humorous sound that is all his own.

Nashville singer-songwriter Ben de la Cour is influenced as much by giants such as Townes Van Zandt and Warren Zevon as by Nick Cave and The Gun Club, and he has has managed to meld all of these influences into a uniquely modern, haunting and sometimes darkly humorous sound that is all his own.

In 2016 Ben de la Cour won the prestigious Kerrville New Folk Competition and released ‘Midnight in Havana’, eleven tightly crafted songs of what he refers to as “Americanoir”. Tales of substance abuse, murder and mental illness sit in perfect juxtaposition with occasional moments of playful lightheartedness and the ever-present glimmer of hope. However, upon closer inspection, darkness almost always wins…an unlikely hero, but one that suits de la Cour.

“Ben de la Cour’s songs are brimming with urgent authenticity. There is thematic hardness and vulnerability throughout, but what distinguishes de la Cour’s songs from lesser guitar-and-anguished-vocals hacks is the raw humanity of his delivery and the potency of his way with words.” –No Depression

“Gruff but well-read, quiet but dancing circles on one heel in the kitchen, Ben de la Cour is the enigma, the lone picker, the troubadour, the drifter, the one man band. He is a revitalizing force, providing the songwriting world with the honesty and emotion, the wisdom and history that is usually lost on singers trying to write the next beer can-blue jean hit.”–American Music Project
