Benyaro -- the indie roots project of seclusive Jackson Hole, WY musician who's worked with such artists as Gary Clark Jr., Brett Dennen and Shovels & Rope -- recently announced the release of his third original full-length album, One Step Ahead of Your Past. 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. For the first time, his longtime tour mate, upright bassist Leif Routman, joins on the recording. Additional guest musicians include Jacob Rodriguez (Michael Bublé) on tenor and baritone saxophone, and NYC’s Brian Geltner (Johnny Society) on drums.

After Alfonso Velez performed some impromptu songs at The Spotted Pig some weeks back, most of the music and film industry crowd wondered how he had yet to be known by the masses. Whatever the reason for his relative obscurity, it's destined to be short-lived as audiences have rapidly grown at his weekly residency in the West Village, where well known artists have been seen joining in to play with him. Velez who has remained a closely guarded secret by Sunday night music seeking New Yorkers, is at a crossroads.
