Jeff Beam is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter from Portland, Maine. He writes, performs, records, & releases melodic experimental pop music tinged with kaleidoscopic soundscapes, inspired by the songwriting of The Beatles, Elliott Smith, & The Kinks, and the sonic textures by the likes of Olivia Tremor Control, Deerhunter, & Spoon. His recordings are a one-man odyssey; his live shows revolve around an energetic band of his good friends.
His lyrics contain observations on humanity, existence, perception, and the attempt to find inner peace amidst a tumultuous outer world. Musically, Beam seeks to fuse together unorthodox pop melody with psychedelic sound textures & colorful instrumentation.
Jeff Beam has opened for many national artists, including Deer Tick, Marco Benevento, Wintersleep, Jefferson Starship, and White Hinterland.
