New York-based indie pop singer/songwriter Michael Buono has shared the exuberant video for his latest single “Hero.” The autobiographical song is a joyful ode to his love of creating music that touches on every aspect of the songwriting and recording process. The video was directed by Christopher Turiello and the song, released digitally on November 22, was co-produced by Buono and Oliver Strauss from Mission Studio in Brooklyn and features Buono on keyboards, Kyle Paas on guitar, Sean Mullins on drums, Cameron Johanning and Isaac Piecuch on backing vocals, and Dave Levvy on trumpet. “Hero,” released digitally on November 22nd, is the first single taken from Buono’s forthcoming debut full-length album Lost which will be released in the spring of 2020.
Says Buono: “’Hero’ is an expression of all the aspects of music that make it my favorite thing to do in the world. Writing a song is absolutely cathartic for me, but recording it is pure joy as I get to hone my craft and constantly find new sources of inspiration.”
