Ben Danaher is a force of vocal prowess and punch-in-the-gut songwriting, and his latest live video in collaboration with Backroom Sound is another shining example of just that. Danaher’s voice is smoky and expressive on “Taught Me To Lie,” which with his adept lyricism shares a heart-wrenching dynamic of a past relationship.
“Taught Me To Lie” is Avett Brothers intimate, Chris Stapleton nuanced, and Will Hoge engaging. Danaher is a must-see live, with the ability to draw tears of laughter between songs and tears of heartache during them. His presentation of “Taught Me To Lie” captures the latter masterfully.
Danaher wrote the song with Justin Halpin, and is joined by Samantha Stephens on vocals.
