Jeff Beam is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter from Portland, Maine. He writes, performs, records, & releases melodic music tinged with kaleidoscopic soundscapes, inspired by the likes of Olivia Tremor Control, Elliott Smith, Deerhunter, & Grizzly Bear. His recordings are generally a one-man odyssey; his live shows generally revolve between an energetic band of his good friends.
Musically, Beam seeks to fuse together unorthodox pop melody with interesting sound textures & colorful instrumentation.
Jeff Beam has played with Spoon, The New Pornographers, Big Thief, Chris Cohen, Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors), Eleanor Friedberger (Fiery Furnaces), Robert Schneider (Apples In Stereo), Deer Tick, Marco Benevento, Sam Roberts Band, Jefferson Starship, White Hinterland, and many others. Also, he was once in the same room as Joe Biden and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
