"In my room, the radio was really always forever on. I grew up drawing. I was always drawing, all the time, with the radio
After pursuing his passion for art and then ending up as a professor of cinematography to pay the bills, Beam focused

Iron and Wine Background
Iron and Wine is the stage and recording name for Samuel Beam. Hailing from South Carolina,
Beam's dynamic background includes earning a bachelor's degree in art from the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond,
Virginia, with a specialty in painting; as well as an MFA degree from the Florida State University Film School. Before his
debut Iron and Wine album arrived, Beam earned a living as a professor at the University of Miami and Miami International
University of Art & Design, teaching cinematography.
He had penned songs for several years before borrowing an aging
four-track recorder from a friend. He then developed his own demos and gave one to Ben Bridwell, a member of Band of Horses.
Bridwell turned it over to Mike McGonigal, editor of Yeti magazine. McGonigal selected Dead Man's Will to include on a compilation
Eventually, Beam grabbed the attention of Sub Pop Records co-owner Jonathan Poneman, to strike a deal. The Creek
Drank the Cradle arrived in 2002 as Beam's debut Sub Pop label album. Beam did all the work for it in his home studio - writing,
recording, producing and performing. Featuring instrumentals of slide guitar and the banjo, album has been likened to the
music of Neil Young, Elliott Smith, Simon and Garfunkel and Nick Drake.
Additionally in 2002, Beam cut Such Great Heights,
a cover of The Postal Service's then un-released tune. Later on, he released the follow-up to his debut album. The Sea &
The Rhythm was an EP, which featured tracks that were similar to the tunes on his first album.
His sophomore full-length
album came out in 2004, and was titled Our Endless Numbered Days. This one was cut in a professional recording studio and
included other band members. In that same year, he put out The Trapeze Swinger for the movie, In Good Company. His rendition
of Such Great Heights was also included in an M&Ms advertisement and in the flick, Garden State. This version was eventually
utilized in an Ask.com ad (2006).
The Shepherd's Dog was Iron and Wine's third full-length album effort, which arrived
in 2007. Paste magazine earmarked it as one of the ten best of 2007.
Kiss Each Other Clean arrived in 2011, followed
by Ghost on Ghost in 2013. Referring to Kiss Each Other Clean, Rolling Stone said, "pop music hadn't seen anything like it
since the heyday of Cat Stevens." Pitchfork echoed Rolling Stone's sentiments saying it, "more closely resembles the lush,
gold-toned singer songwriter records of the late 60s and early 70s - Astral Weeks, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."
on Ghost, Beam had a little help from a group of some other talented artists like Tony Scherr, Rob Burger, Steve Bernstein,
Curtis Fowlkes, Brian Blade, Tony Garnier, Marika Hughes, Anja Wood, Kenny Wolleson, Doug Wieselman and more.
