Marco Benevento Music on Maxwell
November 13, 2014 @ 8:00 pm
For more than a decade pianist Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive resume of composition and collaboration. But until Benevento set out to complete his fifth album under his own name, he’d never sung his own songs, a strange omission for music that’s so often been lyrical. That changes—decisively, assuredly, triumphantly—on Swift, the boldest and most bracing album of Benevento’s career. Benevento plays an acoustic piano that is amplified by using pickups and effected with various effect pedals. He also makes use of circuit bent toys, drum machines and other synthesizers. Swift will be released on Tuesday, September 16th. Marco Benevento will be here on Thursday, November 13th. Crow Moses opens the show. Crow Moses released his new record Horse Heaven Hills on September 9. The record was produced by legendary alt-country trailblazer Gary Louris of The Jayhawks.
