American Singer / Songwriter / Sam Beam AKA Iron and Wine - Biography


Beam (born July 26, 1974) grew up in Irmo, South Carolina, obsessed with two things: art and music. “In my room, the radio was really always forever on,” Beam would recall. “I grew up drawing. I was always drawing, all the time, with the radio on.”
When Beam went to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, studying fine arts, thinking he’d be a painter. But, he “ended up getting into photography,” and that lead to the study of cinematography at Florida State University, where he’d meet his wife, Kim.

The couple moved to Miami so that Kim could pursue her studies in midwifery, and, coincidentally enough, started churning out kids (these days, Beam is the father of five daughters). Feeling the need to support his family, Beam shelved the small, self-made films that were consuming his time —his only foothold in Hollywood being a —non-union lighting engineer, not even important enough to make the final credits”— on the Mel Gibson/Heath Ledger revisionist civil-war picture The Patriot— and got a professorial gig teaching cinematography at Miami University.

Beam was signed to Sub Pop, and in 2002 the legendary label released a collection of Beam’s home recordings
