Iron & Wine
Iron & Wine
Iron & Wine is the musical project of singer-songwriter Sam Beam. Born and raised in South Carolina, Beam is a former film professor who got his start making home recordings before landing on Sub Pop Records. Iron &Wine’s 2002 debut, The Creek Drank the Cradle, garnered both critical and popular acclaim, vaulting Beam into the spotlight of the burgeoning indie-folk/Americana scene as one of its new and leading voices.
Now entering its 20th year, Iron & Wine has captured the emotion and imagination of listeners with distinctly cinematic songs. His recorded output includes seven full-length studio records, collaborations with Calexico, Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), and Jesca Hoop, countless EP’s, singles and compilation/soundtrack appearances, three Grammy nominations for Beast Epic (2017), Weed Garden (2018) and Years to Burn (2019), and a series of Archive releases featuring demos and rarities.
Iron & Wine is back on the road in 2022, heading out on tour with only his guitar as backing band - taking the show back to basics, putting his song-writing front and center.
