and country music artist Andrew Beam comes by his honestly.
Raised in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina, Andrew Beam grew up surrounded by the culture that gave rise to so many great artists, from Don Gibson to Ronnie Milsap, Charlie Daniels to Randy Travis, from Chet Atkins all the way up through Eric Church….it must be something in the hills.
The son of a bluegrass picking preacher, Andrew learned about roots music at its’ actual roots: bluegrass festivals, church socials, and front porch get-togethers. An avid fisherman and serious bowhunter, Clemson University alum Andrew was serving as a game warden with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources when a mutual friend introduced him to RCA Victor/Moonwatcher Records producer Joe Taylor. As a result of this meeting, the two became friends and musical partners, and Andrew became a full-time writer and artist.
Says Taylor: “Andrew is the genuine article. Every word he writes and sings rings true, and every show he does is a journey to the real heartland of country music. A rich, iconic American voice; unusual in such a young artist.”
Cut to present day, where Andrew Beam has built a strong fanbase from the Southeast to Texas, surrounded himself with a close group of loyal friends and associates, assembled an all-star band, and released his first full length LP in 2021; “Selma by Sundown,” a follow-up EP “Lowcountry” in 2022, and is set to release “The Salt Creek Sessions” in late 2023. So, welcome to Beam Country….Beam like the whiskey, Country like the music!
