Episode 3: Marco Benevento

PPFL_16-9_Marco

This week, host RJ Bee speaks with virtuoso keyboardist Marco Benevento about the life experiences and musical inspirations behind his unique blend of indie pop, jazz, hard rock, and improvisation. We’ll hear about the start of Marco’s lifelong relationship with drummer Joe Russo, how moving to the Hudson Valley transformed Marco’s life and music, and the new crew of artists he’s working with that inspire him in a whole new way.

The episode closes with Marco performing three songs from his home studio in Upstate New York: “Two of You”, “Dropkick”, and “In the Afternoon Tomorrow”. You can see videos of these and all Past, Present, Future, Live! exclusive live performances on the Osiris Media YouTube channel.

You’ll find original versions of these tracks, as well as other songs and artists mentioned in this episode, on Marco’s Past, Present, Future, Live! Spotify playlist (which you can also stream below).
