Music Industry News Network said:
Los Angeles, CA - Singer/songwriter Ben Mauro just released his debut EP TO LA, which showcases his eclectic palette and refined musicianship. To LA EP has rich sonic textures and cinematic undertones that set the tone to Mauro’s unparalleled musicianship and is now available on iTunes and Spotify.
While Mauro has clearly confirmed a presence as skilled guitarist playing as a permanent member in Lionel Richie’s band, he has proved to be a brilliant songwriter, drawing from various influences and styles in his latest work. The Americana-inspired love song, “Eleanore,” is packed with expertly executed blues shredding and the Spanish guitar-lead tale of revenge in “Burn It To The Ground” both reveal Mauro’s cinematic inclinations. The closing track, “Happily Ever” wraps up the collection perfectly with an acoustic track full of love, positivity and chipper whistling. The To LA EP proves that this musician is full of surprises, stories and most importantly unparalleled musicianship.

"Love this song...It's got a great vibe to it with a lot of diversity...poppy, bluesy and country...Solid songwriting and some pretty nifty guitar work too! "Take Your Time" is a very catchy tune that I know will be in my head when I wake up tomorrow morning.
