Ben Schneider looks to the past while remaining in the present on his first album
Ben Schneider’s lyrics about the typical Americana ideals of chivalry, hard work, and of course rucksack toting hikes through the woods remind us that there was a time before facebook, when one would shout out his love from a mountaintop instead of updating a relationship status. Which is kind of ironic considering his use of digital technology to create a sunny atmosphere in his music. But these elements come together to produce an album that is worth the listen.
