”Indie acoustic soul power” -RELIX
Benyaro — the indie roots project of seclusive Jackson Hole, WY musician who’s worked with such artists as Gary Clark Jr., Brett Dennen and Shovels & Rope — recently announced the release of his third original full-length album, One Step Ahead of Your Past (September 8, Mohinga Music). Produced with Danny Kadar (The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket) and recorded at the legendary Echo Mountain Recording and Ben Musser’s home studio in Wyoming, One Step Ahead of Your Past is “a deeply personal collection of tunes from a period in which I became a husband and a father,” with songs that explore the profound, vibrant, and mundane with humility and humor.
Multi-instrumentalist Musser composed the thirteen punk-Americana tracks that comprise the record. For the first time, his longtime tour mate, upright bassist Leif Routman, joins on the recording. Additional guest musicians include Jacob Rodriguez (Michael Bublé) on tenor and baritone saxophone, and NYC’s Brian Geltner (Johnny Society) on drums.
