Marco Benevento Unveils November Tour Dates In Support of New Album Let It Slide (Out Sept 20/RPF)



Marco Benevento has announced a run of November shows in support of his new album Let It Slide, out September 20 (RPF). Together with his summer/fall dates already announced he has 25 shows scheduled through November including a headlining show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn October 24. Marco recently announced his new album and it has already been met with praise from KCRW, Brooklyn Vegan, and a live performance on Adult Swim’s FishCenter.  


Watch “Let It Slide” here, filmed on a VHS camera:


"Bubbling, epigrammatic, free-wheeling" - KCRW, on new single

"Benevento was bridging the gap between indie rock and jam bands way before there were thinkpieces on it" - Brooklyn Vegan

"Throughout his long and acclaimed career, piano virtuoso Marco Benevento has experimented within forms and flipped them from the inside, out" - Metro NY


Let It Slide is the result of a new partnership and fast friendship with Leon Michels (El Michels Affair) who has worked with Dr. John, Dan Auerbach, Charles Bradley, Lee Fields and Mark Ronson. Michels produced the album and recorded it at Diamond Mine Studios in Queens and Benevento’s own Fred Short studio in the Catskills.

Let It Slide features Benevento (Vocals, Piano, Synths, Bass, Percussion), Nick Movshon (Drums, Bass), Leon Michels (Organ, Percussion, Bass, Guitar, Saxophone), Karina Rykman (Vocals and official bassist in Benevento’s touring trio), Andy Borger (Drums on “Solid Gold”) and longtime musical partner Brad Barr (Guitar on “Humanz”).

Benevento has performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall and Newport Jazz to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, and worked in the studio and on the road with the likes of Richard Swift (The Shins, The Arcs), Jon Brion (Spoon, Aimee Mann), A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers), and Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Lumineers). He also plays keyboards in Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. "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," the LA Times has raved, while NPR said he combines "the thrust of rock, the questing of jazz and the experimental ecstasy of jam.”
