Marco Benevento has announced North American tour dates in support of his forthcoming new album, Between The Needles & Nightfall. The Brooklyn-based pianist leads his trio for a 29-night headline run that includes a stop at The Southgate House just outside of Cincinnati in Newport, KY on Thursday, May 13.

On Between The Needles & Nightfall, Benevento’s third studio effort in as many years, he proves himself one of the most prolific new voices of his era. Blurring genres from song to song, and more often from measure to measure, the pianist offers his own take on simple pop pleasures, dance party rave-ups and art jazz experimentation. The results range from the day-glo electro-rock of “It Came From You” to the simply-stated lullaby “Ila Frost” to the shimmering Arcade Fire-meets-Brad Mehldau anthem “Two Of You.” Speaking in modern sonic tongues, cut-and-pasted, tweaked-out and glitchy, Marco Benevento creates music full of wide-eyed wonder that rejoices in the limitless horizons of sound and melody.

Between The Needles & Nightfall hits stores May 11 on vinyl, CD and download via The Royal Potato Family.
