Ben de la Cour Americanoir Tour

Gaslight Gardens

Ben de la Cour is a folk musician with the songwriting acumen of a young Nick

Cave. 'Sobriety and the Woman' is 3 minutes, 14 seconds of dark, brooding

acoustica that pitches de la Cour as a raw musician with the lyrical wisdom of a

vitriolic Leonard Cohen. It's stark, melancholic and packed with emotion and will

send you collectively weak at the knees." -Fresh Deer Meat


"Brilliant" -BBC Radio Bristol

"Literary, moody and hauntingly melodic" -San Francisco Free Folk Festival


Ben de la Cour started out playing in metal bands at the age of eleven in

Brooklyn. At twenty-five years old he has been a boxer in Cuba, a busker in

Paris, a janitor in a mental institution, a farm worker and the frontman for London

based doom-lunatics Dead Man's Root with whom he released two albums.

In 2009 de la Cour began recording and gigging on his own and has since played

all over the country as well as touring the UK, Ireland, France and Switzerland.

He currently lives in Los Angeles and released his debut album "Under a Wasted

Moon" in 2010 on iTunes.

Like his heroes Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits and Hank Williams, he echoes

the timeless voices of the past while creating something contemporary, haunting

and unique.
