August Knight gets bare and desolate on this stripped back take on his song ‘Arizona Rain’. Though minimal in its musical dressage, it still sounds lush within its high and lonesome pedal-steel draped sound. Over all of that, Knight hits the sweet spot between heartache and simple lyrical impact.
“Arizona rain bring me an angel, open up the sky and let her in.”
It looks like Knight has had an interesting creative life, with designing the first websites for KISS and Van Halen to starting magazines and writing TV pilots. Now he’s back in the songwriting saddle and the results are sounding promising.
