Ben Hoganson has steadily been writing and recording music that teeters on the margins of folk and indie rock, but is laced with somethingĀ a little more.

Lyrics often illuminate personalities of Americana, hopeful and honest people believing that hard work pays off, but also the disillusioned who have been pushed to the ground by the American Dream, clearing the dust from their mouths.

His music ranges from gentle folk fingerstyle balladry to distorted electric guitar leads, conveying a sense of desperate failure, and hard-won success.
