Iron & Wine

It's hard not to compare Iron and Wine to some of the most legendary indie singer-songwriters of the past, such as Elliot Smith and Nick Drake. Samuel Beam, the lone member of Iron & Wine, was born in South Carolina and grew up in agricultural environments--namely, on farms. It comes as little surprise then that Beam is drawn to folky and acoustic music. Beam has a multidimensional artistic history, as proven by the fact that he received his MFA in painting and worked as a professor of film and cinematography before launching his musical career.

Beam plays his acoustic guitar with incredible emotion and his music is clearly very personal; his talent for folk music is sky-high and is enhanced by his velvety and boyish vocals. Iron & Wine successfully places Beam in the group of renowned folk singer-songwriters.
