The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is pleased to present Iron and Wine in a solo performance.
Iron and Wine, the stage name of singer-songwriter Sam Beam, released his fifth full-length album, Ghost on Ghost, in 2013 with the help of a cast of talented musicians. This album received praise from critics, with NPR Music calling Beam “a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas into simple arrangements and vice versa,” and publications such as Pitchfork remarking on the balance between the band’s fuller sound and the stripped-down whisper-folk of Beam’s beginnings.
Beam released his first Iron and Wine album, The Creek Drank the Cradle, on the Sub Pop label in 2002. Beam wrote, performed, recorded and produced the album in his home studio. Featuring acoustic guitars, banjo, and slide guitar, the album’s music has been compared to that of Nick Drake, Simon and Garfunkel, Elliott Smith, Neil Young, and John Fahey. Since then, Beam’s music has expanded beyond hushed bedroom studios and headphones and has appeared on soundtracks for films such as Garden State and Twilight, and in television series such as Grey’s Anatomy, The L Word, and House M.D.
Before releasing his first album, Beam worked primarily as a professor of film and cinematography. His stage name Iron and Wine is taken from a dietary supplement named “Beef Iron & Wine” that he found in a general store during a shoot as a film student in Florida.
