ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When the walls collapse, the storm passes, and the dream ends. When the bones are healed, and the song is over. What’s left behind?

New York City singer/songwriter Benjamin Wagner probes these depths with lyrical nuance and melodic faculty in his extraordinary new album, “What’s Left Behind.” The 11 songs reflect the zeitgeist: entropy, decadence and decay. Things fall apart. The center will not hold.

“Everything around you,” Wagner sings in the album-opening stomper, “Walls,” “is eventually bound to break.”

These are tales of flooded towns (“Storm King”), broken dreams (“Better Off”), collapsed cities (“Walls”), and shattered lives (“Broken”). This is real, dark stuff – love, loss, compromise, and concession – all renderer in a major key.

I’m floating in space
A rock in the cold
Blood on my face
The man who has sold
His art for a lie
His heart for a needle and thread

It’s a place where “it just rains and rains all year, “everything comes up zero,” and “luck alone never really lasts.”

Still, embedded in nearly every song is the steady discipline of hope.

“I’m broken in a thousand pieces,” Wagner sings in “Broken.” “Mended where there once was weakness, and stronger every day.”

Embedded in nearly every song is relentless resilience.

“Because you know there is a light,” Wagner reminds us in “Daylight Follows. “And the day always follows the night, follows the day.”

“And all that we can see,” Wagner whispers amidst the wreckage of the title track, “tomorrow.”

Bruises heal. The sun rises. And we find our way through the sound.
