The album features song covers of The Talking Heads, Bonnie Raitt, and more.
Beam graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor’s of Arts and an MFA from Florida State University Film School. After teaching at Miami International University of Art & Design, his music attracted the attention of Subpop Records, and later went on tour with Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse. His song “Flightless Bird American Mouth“ has more than 3 million views on YouTube and was featured on the Twilight movie soundtrack.
