About Benny Mardones

Benny Mardones, nicknamed "The Voice" due to his near four-octave vocal range and soulful, passionate delivery, has released his first album of all original music since 1999's Bless a Brand New Angel. Entitled, Let's Hear it For Love, Benny has unleashed a torrent of the fiery arena rock splashed with catchy hooks and melodic twists with the help of producer, Jim Ervin. Touted by Variety as "hyperkinetic" always on the make, Benny plans to continue his busy touring schedule performing songs from the new album as well as classics such as "Into the Night." Still one of Mardones' favorite songs to perform, "Into the Night" is one of the top 25 most played singles in the history of radio, gracing the airwaves over five million times.

Mardones, has enjoyed an extremely successful twenty-five years as a songwriter and showman. He has shared the stage with Fleetwood Mac and the Rolling Stones, and has played alongside legends such as the Otis Redding band. In a Showtime tribute to rock icon Roy Orbison, Benny performed with the likes of Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, and Johnny Cash. Mardones' ability to compose music that transcends generational gaps and typical pop-rock-r&b genre pigeonholes has much to do with his achingly honest lyrics and soulful delivery. As Rolling Stone quips, his "gloriously adolescent romanticism" appeals to all regardless of age or musical background.

Pursuing a rigorous touring schedule over the years despite his recent diagnosis with Parkinson's, Benny gathers his strength from his passion for performing and his adoring fans. He notes that, "There are days where I wonder if I am going to be able to use these vocal chords... if my legs are going to hold me up. But at this point in my life, my fans are almost family -- they support me and they help keep me going. As long as they want to hear me sing, as long as they want to come to the shows, I will pour every last drop of myself into performing."

Benny's twelve-song "Let's Hear it For Love" album has been dedicated to his long time road manager and dear friend, Tommy Piraino, who passed away recently from leukemia. The song, "Just for you my friend," which features a short appearance from Tommy�s son, was penned as Benny grieved. Says Mardones, "There are a number of extremely personal tracks on the album that I almost considered not including. But I realized that one of the reasons my friends and fans have been so supportive of me over the years, is that I refuse to hold back. You come to my shows or listen to my albums you get 100% uncensored me."

Benny is currently scheduling a number of upcoming tour dates, including various special appearances at non-profit gatherings benefiting the disabled community.
