On Friday, Beard Bates will release an album titled The World is Blown — and Rock Cellar has the honor of premiering its title track ahead of the full album’s unveiling:
Previously, we premiered the video for “Weasel Sleeping” as a preview, and an introduction, of sorts, to Beard Bates, should you be unaware of his career by name.
Some biographical information about him:
Throughout his illustrious career he has had the title of singer, songwriter, producer, abstract painter, designer and much more. Musically, he leaves no genre untouched with elements of rock, roots, EDM, pop and experimental in his catalog. Born in Virginia, now residing in LA, Beard Bates begin writing songs around age nine when he learned basic guitar chords on a tiny guitar his grandfather, a consummate craftsman, made for him. Since high school he has played with various bands (JilFlirter, The Virginia City Revival), released dozens of albums and made a name for himself as a producer – in addition to studying literature, writing novels and training to be an art curator at The London Consortium. Over the past few years, Beard has not been playing or putting out much “popular” music, mainly because he has been focusing on ambient recordings, nature field recording, and creating much abstract art.
