Bio

From the eastern suburbs of Melbourne come The Bean Project, a vibrant French horn-clad acoustic quintet blending the raw untreated sounds of folk, jazz and singer-songwriter styles with fresh and unique songwriting - most aptly described as 'the odd marriage of James Taylor and The Cat Empire'.

In January Melbourne’s premier French-horn clad quintet recorded their debut album ‘Naked Trees’. After 3 months of touring, appearing at Port Fairy Folk Festival, National Folk Festival and Folk Alliance International (USA), The Bean Project are set to release the first single 'Gaps' from their debut album on 18th May supported by a national tour visiting Adelaide, Canberra, Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane, and much in between.

A coo, a shuffle, a breeze of warm brass. It all adds up to something real easy on the ears!
