Benjamin Dakota Rogers (from the album Paint Horse available on Good People Records Co) (by Bryant Liggett)
Benjamin Dakota Rogers took advantage of 21st Century fads, and that’s the only modern moment about him and his songs. That fad is Tik Tok, and it promoted his vintage sounding songs played on old instruments, tunes that sounding like circa 1940’s post war VE or VJ day. Paint Horse is, however, a current recording, with a date of 2023 on its sleeve, featuring Benjamin Dakota Rogers as an old soul in modern times, on who has made a timeless, story-song record.
Men will always be jilted by their lovers, as evidenced in “John Came Home”, the tale telling of a man returning from war to find his lover now in the arms of his brother. “Blackjack County Chain” is an Outlaw cut, the iron links of the track title can be found wrapped around the narrators legs, “Back to You” is a tale about an ‘all or nothing’ traveler on the road and “Charlie Boy” a courting song about a love that may never come to the singer.
Paint Horse features a hat-trick of female introductions with “Maggie”, “Rosie”, and “Eloise” where Rogers is lamenting the three and their leaving ways. The fiddle, clawhammer banjo, and aggressive guitar bring usher in a front-porch picking party as they offer an old-time score to a load of sad tales while Paint Horse proves that Benjamin Dakota Rogers is just as much literary author as he is songwriter.
