2003 saw the release of The Sea & The Rhythm, an EP collecting other home-recorded tracks along the same lines as those on his debut. Beam's sophomore album, Our Endless Numbered Days was recorded in a professional studio with a significant increase in fidelity. The focus still lies on acoustic material, but the inclusion of other band members gives rise to a very different sound.
Beam, the Miami-based folk-pop singer-songwriter who performs and records under the name Iron and Wine, has released two CDs and an EP since September 2002.
Beam can't say how many songs he's written since "The Creek Drank the Cradle" was released, but he can tell you approximately how many he's written in the three years since he finished working on that disc.
Beam's songs, which have drawn nearly universal raves from critics and have helped him amass a significant fan base in a very short period, feature skillfully crafted, frequently narrative, always poetic lyrics, sung in a sweet whisper and carried on lovely melodies that put a Southern spin on Brian Wilson and Simon and Garfunkle-influenced pop.
