Episode 107 – Getting To The 13th Note With Marco Benevento

We got a chance to sit down with Marco Benevento before the JRAD show in Eugene and talk about his new solo album ‘Let It Slide’, telepathy in the Benevento Russo Duo days, coming up with a universal song, what it feels like to have your dreams fully happening, being egged on by Joe to find the 13th note, and a whole bunch more!!!!

Marco is the founder and recording engineer of Fred Short, a recording studio in Upstate New York, and a member of the rock groups Benevento/Russo Duo and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and an amazing human being!

Marco’s Album ‘Let It Slide’ comes out on 9/20 and will be available wherever music streams.
