This past weekend PBS stations across the country broadcast a brand new episode of long-running live music television program Austin City Limits. Season 43, Episode 6 showcased the music of The Head and the Heart and Benjamin Booker.
Seattle’s The Head & The Heart mixed original material including such new songs as “All We Ever Knew” and “City Of Angels” with a moving cover of “Hunger Strike” played in the days after the passing of Chris Cornell. NOLA via Florida guitarist Benjamin Booker then packed his part of the episode with tunes from this year’s Witness LP as well as throwbacks from his self-titled debut album.
“The Head and the Heart and Benjamin Booker are prime examples of artists who just keep getting better,” said ACL executive producer Terry Lickona. “Rather than finding a groove and just staying with it, they are constantly searching for new ways to express their voices, and new sounds to go along with them. The end result can be surprising but always inspiring.”
