The Bean Project

From the eastern suburbs of Melbourne come The Bean Project, a vibrant French horn-clad acoustic duo 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'.



After completing their studies in music at the end of 2015, guitarist/vocalist Ben and French horn player Bryce let no moment spare in hitting the road. They spent three months taking their intimate stage show across the country, sleeping in the back of the ‘Bean-Mobile’ and playing gigs at every pub, club and bar they could find. For both Ben and Bryce it was a formative and fun but tiring experience, and one that resulted in their reinvigorated second EP.



The Live at Hothouse EP features the flagship combination of acoustic guitar and French horn, but also two new Beans; Isaac on double bass and Maddy



Named the 2016 FAA Young Folk Act of the Year, The Bean Project are set to release their second EP Live at Hothouse featuring the brand new expanded lineup in September 2016 supported by their second national tour.
