About Jeff Beam
The music of 23-year-old Jeff Beam has drawn comparisons to the studio musings and melodic flourishes of Elliott Smith and Harry Nilsson and also brings to mind the vigor of a young Elvis Costello, the unconventionality of Beck and the psyche-pop perfection of The Flaming Lips.
At such a young age, Beam already boasts a broad discography with several albums. His latest work is the upcoming Venus Flying Trapeze, a 12-song psychedelic affair featuring melodies that are warped and catchy, clever chord changes and existential, surrealistic lyrical content. Check out the title track HERE as well as a recent live version HERE.
Before landing in New York, Beam was raised in a small town in the woods of Maine on a constant barrage of “The White Album,” Electric Light Orchestra, The Who’s Tommy, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. “To me, this is the best kind of music,” Beam says, “And I once heard a tip that you should try to make the kind of music that you want to hear.”
Jeff Beam is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
