Cellist and multi-instrumentalist Christopher Bell blends the classical and pop worlds. Clarinet, acoustic guitar, beat boxing and cello recorded live into dense soundscapes. Hip hop beats, gentle fugues, jazz and blues all wrapped up into his own brand of Quirky Pop. For fans of Paul Simon and Andrew Bird.
Brought together by our mysterious and shy songwriter, Jameson the Elephant, Beacon James is a band dedicated to story through song. Jameson loves harmony and shaking his elephant booty, so (with his help) that is what we bring to you through gyration syncopation and "extravagant vocals" (Tyler Griggs, Volume One 2011). Folky, funky, sassy and all around dorks, the Beacons are all about you singing along at the top of your lungs... and for your convenience, our elephant has included five part harmony so you don't have to make up vocal lines that he doesn't like.
