Benjamin Dakota Rogers Shares Gorgeous New Single

Hailing from the countryside of rural Ontario, Benjamin Dakota Rogers channels his penchant for starry nights and nostalgia into a stylized Americana sound full of heartbreak and grit featuring the guitar, banjo, upright bass, and fiddle. At just 25, the two-time Canadian Folk Music Awards nominee and four-time international songwriting competition winner promises to deepen the path he’s already carved for himself in the years to come.

Inspired by old Western movies, his new single “When I Do Die” follows the murder ballad storyline of boy meets girl and falls in love, but girl has another lover who boy kills. He gets the girl for a short while before his crime catches up to him. At the beginning of the song, he’s asking her to carry his body back home when he’s gone.
