Giveaway Info

Sam Beam, also known as Iron & Wine, is an American singer and songwriter from South Carolina. The moniker stems from him coming across a dietary supplement named ?Beef Iron & Wine? while working on a film. He has released six studio albums, several EP?s, and singles. His first album made him one of the preeminent artists of the first wave of indie folk, but his other albums constantly shifted themes and were political and diverse. Over the years Beam?s songs and voice have comforted and challenged his fans with every new release.

Weed Garden is Iron & Wine?s newest EP carries more weight than the title suggests. In ?Talking to Fog, Sam Beam gives a clear picture of happiness with lines like ?where our memories of singing fill the air above our heads? and ?the faces of our family and friends go on and on?. Beam even has a round of acapella in the track. ?Waves of Galveston?, which is a fan favorite, makes it hard to tell if he is observing the real place or coming up with his own version of Galveston, but either way it still holds authenticity. While he has grown as an artist musically and lyrically, Beam manages to keep that intimacy between him and the listener.
