Biography

Contemporary artist Neil Jenney once told Ben Musser, in order to create something truly unique, one must shut out the influence of others. For Jenney, it meant stop looking at your peers' work and for Musser, it translated to taking a break from listening to his favorite bands' albums. Difficult, of course, but to fully realize one's potential as a unique artist, one must focus on ... Read more in Amazon's benyaro Store

Product Description

New York City based indie acoustic roots & soul group, Benyaro, follows up its self-released, self-titled, nationally charting (CMJ) debut album with Good Day Better. The album dropped March 24, 2010 in New York City.

Recorded in Charlottesville, Virginia and New York, New York in the brutal winter of 2010, Good Day Better features Ben Musser s strongest offering of original material to date and classic songs penned by Scott Claassen, Malcolm Holcombe and Diana Jones.

Good Day Better unpredictably explores and expands the boundaries of acoustic music offering 12 tracks ranging from gospel, folk, country, rock, blues, and soul to beatboxing/house. The songs are inspired by family, places, pets, lovers and draw on the emotions that exist from engaging in such relationships. Such sentiments are unequivocally reflected in Musser s vocal performances which overflow with feeling while the beautiful, vulnerable, yet occasionally stern vocals of Meg Chamberlin perfectly offset the masculinity of Musser s and Bobby McCullough s voices.

In a time when name dropping who worked on your record seems more important than the sounds and songs on it, Good Day Better was produced by Musser, Benyaro founder, instrumentalist and primary writer, in a way that utilized the uniqueness of the group. For the first time the sounds and influences of upright bassist and back up vocalist Bobby McCullough can be heard adding to the sound that is Benyaro. The new collaboration between Musser and McCullough produced extraordinary arrangements and a multi-dimensional album with the potential of appealing to millions of listeners hungry for new music. The engineering of Jamal Millner, (Charlottesville area musician/producer) and Gar Ragland (New York City area producer/musician) helped to further create an environment of independence from formulaic approaches to making music. Tony Shimkin (Noble Media) and Musser mixed the album with the same principles in mind.

In 2010, Benyaro performed to hundreds of eager, newly inspired fans across the country from New York to Seattle, San Francisco to New Orleans, and everywhere in between. In 2011 Benyaro continues to tour in support of Good Day Better performing at prep-schools & universities in the east.

Since releasing Good Day Better Benyaro has toured in support of Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Langhorne Slim, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Shovels & Rope, Anders Osborne, The Stone Foxes, Dangermuffin, Abigail Washburn, Tony Furtado, The Farewell Drifters, Gregory Alan Isakov, Jill Andrews and closed for the Avett Brothers and Brett Dennen.

Review

If you re a fan of The Band or their modern-day counterparts The Avett Brothers, there s a good chance you ll take a shine to GOOD DAY BETTER...Musser at times recalls David Bowie - Nashville SCENE

Indie acoustic soul power - RELIX Magazine

Sounds like early-period acoustic David Bowie but with an Americana twang - WESU 88.1 FM - Middleton, CT

An incredibly warm album, enveloping the listener in nostalgic reminiscense, like everything that made early Tom Waits so good. Inflections of '60s country-rock, trip-hop, and broken-beat minimal techno combine in surprising ways - KBGA 89.9 FM - Missoula, MT

Musser, McCullough and Chamberlin deliver the folk gospel according to Benyaro, a crunchy granola, campfire hoot of a sound endowed with warm tunes and tight harmonies, launching instant sing-alongs. As their new album promises, makes a Good Day Better - Philadelphia Daily News

A sweet, soulful sound - New York Press

A strong collection of upbeat rootsy tunes - WGTB 92.3 FM - Washington, DC

Indie Acoustic Soul... - Boulder Weekly --Nashville SCENE, Relix, Phialdephia Daily News, New York Press, Boulder Weekly
