Marco Benevento
For more than a decade pianist Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive resume of composition and collaboration. His albums set forth a vision that connects the dots between MGMT and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. In the live setting, his performances reverberate with pulsating dance rock energy, which has led to numerous high profile appearances, ranging from Carnegie Hall to Celebrate Brooklyn, Newport Jazz to Bonnaroo. Benevento has been invited to open for The Books, Ben Folds and Rubblebucket, while headlining shows from coast to coast.

The 36-year old artist took a major step forward with the release of his 2012 album, TigerFace. The ten-track collection is painted in a myriad of sonic colors, shimmering with acoustic piano, synths and analog keyboards, while the songs are seemingly conceptualized from every wisp of melody that's ever tickled his ear.

In 2014, Benevento returned to the studio to record his latest work with producer Richard Swift whose resume includes The Shins, Foxygen and Tennis. Together, they focused their attention on a collection of news songs Benevento had written that expand upon his lush instrumental piano rock to include vocals. The album, entitled Swift, will be released September 16 on Royal Potato Family.

As anybody who's seen Marco Benevento perform can attest, with eyes closed, smile wide across his face and fingers free-flowing across the keys, the pianist is a satellite to the muse. With a devout and growing fan-base, Benevento is an artist whose story is only beginning to unfold.
Water Monster
Water Monster
Water Monster is the new side project of Cathedral Pearls vocalist/bass player, Max Harnishfeger. Engaging the soul side of his writing chops and his wide vocal range, Max explores the ins and outs of groove centered electronic dreamscapes. Layered over unique, hand crafted beats and one of a kind synth loops, Water Monster adds a human element of acoustic instruments like the kalimba and guitar into each song. Leaving the audience with ever-present knowledge that this group has an equally weighing grasp of technology and musical integrity. With a strong single release of the song "Rest" in the spring of 2014 and a debut EP titled "Survive The Night" Water Monster is quickly becoming one of the most exciting bands to watch this year in Spokane. Follow @wtrmnstr on Twitter and Instagram and watermonstermusic on Tumblr to watch this project unfold.
