The singer and songwriter known as Marko Benn has released his latest full-length record, “Just Remains.” The album contains 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the support or influence of the corporate music industry. Raw, unmitigated and full of sonic emotion, “Just Remains” is the definitive work from this remarkable singer-songwriter from Ontario's burgeoning music underground.
Marko Benn cites as main artistic influences Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave) and Danny Shirran of Dubai, UAE. His own music falls not far from these trees, being largely founded on heartfelt vocals and rhythmic and ringing acoustic guitar chords. Benn's singing is a masculine kind of beautiful, genuine and true, his guitar work straightforward and strong.
Still, Marko Benn's “Just Remains” is a record based on songwriting more than any of its other high qualities. In terms of chord progression and lyric poetry both, it is a work of humble genius resonating outward from Benn's real-life narrations.
Asked to describe the themes of his new record, Benn writes, “The songs on this album come from experiences in relationships. They relay messages of several emotions like love, heartache and depression.”
Nevertheless, the album is uplifting rather than sad. It is refreshing, invigorating, and often warm. The effect is like a hand outstretched to the listener offering goodwill, brotherhood, and the understanding that comes from having felt several colors of pain.
Largely a studio musician, Marko Benn has stated that his overarching goal in music is to raise funds for sick children and their families.
“After personally experiencing the need for support,” a representative for Marko Benn writes, “he knows how important it is to help others.”
Marko Benn's popular single, “Precious Moments” was made available on iTunes and elsewhere in 2012 with all proceeds going towards this worthy cause.
