An artist who defies classification

For 15 years, Sam Beam has traversed a distinct musical trail from reverent indie-folk to a Motown-influenced sound and back again. His latest album, 'Beast Epic', sees him paying tribute to his folksy roots, armed with an acoustic guitar and his undeniably lovely cadenced delivery. Up close his woozy, rich songs are even more hypnotic than on record.
