Marco Benevento
Marco Benevento
For more than a decade pianist Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive body of work. His studio albums and live performances set forth a vision that connects the dots in the vast space between LCD Soundsystem and Leon Russell, pulsating with dance rock energy, but with smart, earthy songwriting to match. It has led to numerous high profile appearances, ranging from Carnegie Hall to Pickathon, Mountain Jam to Treefort Festival, while headlining shows coast to coast.

Marco Benevento’s latest studio LP, 'The Story of Fred Short,' and its companion live release, 'The Woodstock Sessions,' is some of his finest and most adventurous work to date—a maestro making "bold indie rock" says Brooklyn Vegan, while the LA Times raves, “Benevento continues to straighten his twisted sound into the guise of an indie-rock singer-songwriter, harnessing his inventive sonic palette into rewardingly bite-size pop songs that touch on disco and soul." Honing his psych rock and late night dance party sensibilities, the recordings find the pianist citing everything from Harry Nilsson, Manu Chau and Gorillaz as inspiration.

Anybody who's seen Marco Benevento perform will attest, with eyes closed, smile wide across his face and fingers free-flowing across the keys, he's a satellite to the muse. With a devout and growing fan-base, Benevento is an artist whose story is only beginning to unfold.
Daniel Shearin
Daniel Shearin
“Daniel Shearin is a singer/songwriter living on the outskirts of Asheville, NC. With focus on production as well as songwriting, Daniel experiments with different textures, instruments, and various “found sounds” to accompany his singing and finger-style guitar. From his home studio where he has produced the albums of several local artists in addition to his work at Echo Mountain Recording Studios (including Grammy-nominated “Infinite Arms” from Band of Horses), he records most of his songs himself. Here he leaves a lot of the arranging to what he calls “spontaneity and luck” to create a sometimes ambient, sometimes driving mix of folk and world music.

In 2014, Daniel was a finalist in international, national, and regional songwriting contests including a performance at The Lincoln Center in NYC this past October.

In addition to performing solo, he is a member of the Asheville indie-folk band River Whyless and was a member of Uncle Mountain before their split in 2012.”
