Live Music at 6-9pm Cost-Free
We just discovered Ben Knighten, a folk singer-songwriter from Colorado. We're proud to have him here at Bitto for a solo acoustic show. His music has been described as "an intoxicating blend of intelligent songwriting, artful arranging, beautiful singing and graceful musicianship" and "a brilliant tour-de-force of folk’s emotional power." He recently released his third full-length album entitled "Light the Way" and has played at many different venues across Colorado. He was also nominated for "Best Folk Artist of 2012" and "Best Folk Artist of 2013" by the Colorado Springs Independent. His music is perfect for coffee shops, breweries, and events requiring background music. Click the contact tab for more information about booking. Thanks for stopping by!
2/11/2016 - "Light the Way" Album Review by Jamsphere Magazine
"If someone tells you there’s no more good music being made nowadays, introduce him or her to Ben Knighten. I’m sure they’ll change their ideas. I’m not talking about the beat driven dance floor stuff, or the hyped up, auto-tuned spoken-verse music. I’m talking melodies, harmonies and sensible lyrics; an intoxicating blend of intelligent songwriting, artful arranging, beautiful singing and graceful musicianship. I mean music that won’t leave your head and I don’t mean that in a bad way. Mellow yet melodic with soothing guitar and backing vocals."
