Hey blog readers,


We hope your summers have been as fantastico as ours!


Benyaro’s summer “EP Release” tour was a huge success highlighted by incredible shows with Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Langhorne Slim & The Law, Jessica Lea Mayfield, and Robert Randolph & The Family Band. You can see pics from those shows here.





And after 5 weeks of AAA (Adult Album Alternative) / Americana radio promotion, we find The Cover EP getting spun on radio stations across the country and great feedback is pouring in! Here are a few lines —


“Soulful and inventive interpretations of some of the greatest songs ever written! Whether it’s Sam Cooke or Moby, Benyaro brings their unique spin to their versions on The Cover EP

Rob Reinhart, producer of Acoustic Cafe

“The Cover EP is like an archeological expedition where Benyaro unearths the bones of our musical past, both well-known and forgotten, bringing them back to light in their most essential form. The duo not only does justice to these songs, but also gives them new life.”

Joe Kendrick, Music Director, WNCW 88.7 FM (Spindale/Boone/Charlotte, NC)

“Bold acoustic arrangements of familiar (& not so familiar) tunes done with such panache it makes you re-think the originals.”

– Gary Dickerson, WRFL 88.1 FM (Lexington, KY)

“Benyaro’s new Cover EP delivers an interesting selection of songs with a distinct sound of clarity, soul and passion.”

– Grady Kirkpatrick, Wyoming Public Radio

“On The Cover EP, Benyaro masterfully recreates six momentous songs, each invigorated by the band’s vocal and musical style.  While keeping the mood of the originals, Benyaro also put themselves forward, making this one of the most successful cover albums of the year.”

– Chenoa Roseberry, Somewhere in Texas RadioKISU 91.1 FM (Pocatello, ID)
