Marco Benevento - Cohoes Music Hall
October 12, 2019 - Cohoes

It's impossible not to hear freedom and excitement coursing through the veins of Marco Benevento's new studio album, 'Let It Slide.' Produced by Leon Michels (The Arcs, Lee Fields), the record introduces a gritty, soulful edge to Benevento's brand of high-octane keyboard wizardry — an uptempo, uplifting sound he playfully describes as "hot dance piano rock." For all Benevento's virtuosity on the keys though, the songs here are driven primarily by intoxicating grooves, with spare drums and minimalist basslines underpinning infectious, intentionally lo-fi vocal hooks. The resulting vibe is a timeless one, filtering elements of vintage R&B and soul through modern indie rock and pop sensibilities and peppering it with the kind of adventurous improvisation that Benevento's come to be celebrated for worldwide.

Tyrone Wells - The Lift Me Up Tour - Rockwood Music Hall 2
October 12, 2019 - New York

This event is 21 and over Tyrone Wells still sort of chuckles to himself when he thinks about the fact that making music is his "job." He has been at this "job" for well over a decade, and is just now beginning to shake off the discomfort and stress of the days when he had a real job (TJ Maxx - lead of the ladies department in Spokane, WA). As far as jobs go, Tyrone feels like he has won the lottery (in regards to his present "job"). He loves to create music. He loves to perform. He is a husband, and a father of 3 daughters. He has four sisters, so he feels right at home being completely outnumbered by the ladies in his present household (and also when he was the lead of the ladies dept at TJ Maxx). He believes that Jesus is for real. He's writing this bio. He's referring to himself in the third person. He knows that this bio has a ring of sarcasm, but he is dead serious. He feels extremely grateful. He jokes around, but he has worked very hard at making music his "job."
