In his book Hub City Music Makers, Nashville music critic describes Knights as 'the man who may be South Carolina's greatest rock songwriter.' Knights is adherent to the American songwriting tradition of Hank Williams, of Dylan, of the blues. In some ways Knights' sound is a throwback, drawing equally from Bruce Springsteen's rock anthems, Steve Earle's poetry-meets-twang, and Paul Westerberg's lyrical punk genius. But it isn't just the stylistic intentions of Knights' music; it's the substance. There are countless bands w/ a good song or two. Knights has written many good songs, and more than a few great ones.
