Esteemed singer-songwriter Chris Knight perform at The Southgate House Revival on December 21, in support of his new record Almost Daylight (October 11, Thirty Tigers). His ninth album to date, and his first new music in seven years, Almost Daylight delivers some of the most powerful and unexpected songs of Knight’s career, and has already received praise from press including Associated Press, Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, No Depression and more. For further insight and to hear the record in its entirety, view this recent Billboard feature HERE.
Featuring the colorful characters and compelling rural narratives that dedicated Chris Knight fans have long been drawn to, Almost Daylight channels the tough and tender, real-life stories of perseverance, redemption and love, that connect so intensely with his audiences. The blend of Appalachian instrumentation, electric guitars, Hammond B-3 and stunning background vocals by Chris Clark, Siobhan Kennedy and Lee Ann Womack, create a sound that’s both edgy and full at the same time. A guest vocal performance by John Prine on his 1973 classic “Mexican Home,” rounds out the album.
An uncompromising artist that the New York Times called “a hard-nosed iconoclast and the last of a dying breed…”, Chris Knight has been making music his own way for the past 20 years, flying under the mainstream radar and touring steadily, all while influencing a generation of young up and coming artists (John Moreland / Tyler Childers) who revere his honest approach to songwriting and his unflinching integrity.
