Marco Benevento serves up Psychedelic Soul with his latest single “Winter Rose” released by Royal Potato Family, suggesting a silver lining in these troubled times. Benevento co-wrote “Winter Rose” with Al Howard. It’s his second collaboration with the San Diego-based lyricist and poet, following last Fall’s single release, “At The End Or The Beginning.” Benevento plays all instruments on the track with exception of additional percussion by Mamadouba ‘Mimo’ Camara.
Benevento is putting the finishing touches on a new studio album that will be released this summer.
