For more than a decade pianist Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive resume of composition and collaboration. His studio albums have set forth a vision that connects the dots between Explosions In The Sky and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. In the live setting, his performances reverberate with pulsating dance rock energy, which has led to numerous high profile appearances, ranging from Carnegie Hall to Celebrate Brooklyn, Newport Jazz to Bonnaroo. Benevento’s been invited to open for The Books, Ben Folds and Rubblebucket, while headlining shows from coast to coast, including rooms like Bowery Ballroom, The Independent and Doug Fir. The 35-year old artist took a major step forward this year with the release of a critically acclaimed new album, TigerFace. The ten-track collection is painted in a myriad of sonic colors, shimmering with acoustic piano, synths and analog keyboards, while the songs are seemingly conceptualized from every wisp of melody, hook and cadence that's ever tickled his ear. As anybody who's seen Benevento perform live can attest, with eyes closed, smile wide across his face and fingers flowing across the keys, the pianist is a satellite to the muse. Indeed, TigerFace, is the commitment to this pursuit; a soundtrack for fellow travelers with their eyes set on the horizon.
