Over three previous studio albums, pianist/sound-sculptor/songwriter Marco Benevento has set forth a vision for instrumental music that connects the dots between Explosions In The Sky and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. On his fourth studio recording, TigerFace, the 34-year old artist takes the next step forward in this evolution. He paints his songs in a myriad of sonic colors, shimmering with acoustic piano, synths and analog keyboards. The tunes themselves conceptualized from seemingly every wisp of melody, hook and cadence that’s ever tickled his ear.

The album was recorded and mixed by Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Fiona Apple) and Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Akron/Family) along with a stellar cast of musicians that Benevento recruited to help capture his ideas, including drummers Matt Chamberlain (Bill Frisell, Pearl Jam), John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea & The Cake) and Andrew Barr (The Barr Brothers), bassists Dave Dreiwitz (Ween), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) and Mike Gordon (Phish), violinist Ali Helnwein (Traction Avenue Chamber Orchestra) and saxophonist Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, Superhuman Happiness). For the first time on record, Benevento presents vocals, inviting Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket) to sing on the infectious dance rock rave-up “Limbs Of A Pine” and the pastoral psych rock meditation “This Is How It Goes.” Other standouts include the angelic Arcade Fire meets The Flaming Lips anthem “Eagle Rock,” the soaring garage psychedelia of “Going West,” the piano riff rock jaunt “Escape Horse,” and the lilting “Fireworks,” which bounces along like a long lost Italian folk song beamed down to him by ancestors from his father’s homeland.

As anybody who’s seen Benevento perform live can attest, the pianist—with eyes closed, smile wide across his face, fingers free-flowing across the keys—is a satellite to the muse. TigerFace, indeed, is the commitment to this pursuit; a record that rides the yes wave and in the process becomes a soundtrack for fellow travelers chasing the horizon.

“Benevento jams with a concentration on the textures and colors available in his keyboards and arsenal of manipulated pedals and effects with deceptively rich, catchy melodies and straight-ahead grooves that expand with subtle mounting gestures.” - Rolling Stone

“...a musician so original that he can ultimately only be judged against his own standard.” - All Music Guide

“It’s safe to say that no one sees the keyboard quite like Marco Benevento’s genre-blind mashup of indie rock, jazz and skewed improvisation.” - Los Angeles Times

“Marco Benevento is one of the most talented keys players of our time.” - CBS Street Date
