From the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia come The Bean Project, a vibrant brass-folk quintet blending the raw sounds of folk, jazz and singer-songwriter - most aptly described as 'the odd marriage of James Taylor and The Cat Empire'.
In 2014 The Bean Project emerged as a duo, making a name for themselves playing locally, touring the east coast of Australia, then releasing their debut EP in 2015. The Bean Project were named the Folk Alliance of Australia’s 2016 Artist of the Year and grew into a five-piece, touring nationally and performing at festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival and Folk Alliance International (USA).
In June 2017, The Bean Project teamed up with David Carr at Rangemaster Studios to record their debut album ‘Naked Trees.’ Like a good whisky, 'Naked Trees' is strong, woody and rich, makes you think about your life and gives you a bubbling desire to dance. Swaying from enthusiastic groovy numbers such as ‘Gaps’ to tear-jerking singer-songwriter ballads such as ‘Never Been More Alone,’ the album is a diverse collection of 10 songs inspired by jazz, funk, country and pop, played by an equally as diverse cast of musicians from different musical sensibilities.
