LISTEN: One Step Ahead Of Your Past

“Punk americana… astutely written.”
– No Depression

“Triumphant… with a touch of humor.”
– Glide Magazine

Brooklyn, NY – Indie roots project Benyaro released their third original full-length album One Step Ahead Of Your Past on September 8. In support of the release, Benyaro announces a 14-stop fall tour throughout the U.S. this fall.

One Step Ahead Of Your Past garnered early praise in the press. No Depression cheers, “Produced with Danny Kadar (The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket) and recorded at the legendary Echo Mountain Recording and Ben Musser’s home studio in Wyoming, One Step Ahead of Your Past is ‘a deeply personal collection of tunes from a period in which I became a husband and a father,’ with songs that explore the profound, vibrant, and mundane with humility and humor… Multi-instrumentalist Musser composed the thirteen punk-Americana tracks that comprise the record including ‘That’s The Way Things Seem To Go’ an astutely written, encouraging tune about remaining true to yourself and following your dreams regardless of how bumpy the road of life may get.”

Glide Magazine raves – “Time’s Not On Your Side’…  a triumphant piano rocker with a touch of humor and plenty of worldly advice from Musser.
