Pointedly critical yet hopeful, Beasley writes songs that offer a strong melody, a biting criticism, and a chorus you'll find yourself humming which calls the listener to live more honestly hopeful.


I was on a road trip, blowing in the wind and looking for something true when I found myself in Seattle in the fall of 2012. I found people asking similar questions about life and meaning and decided to stay put. One of the first things my therapist asked me was "when have you felt most alive" and when nearly every example I gave involved listening or playing music he challenged me to start going to an open mic. So it was years of playing at the Conor Byrne Open Mic that began my current journey of writing and singing my songs and finding something true therein.

Neither to diminish the harm experienced nor the beauty of today, my songs call me and the listener to advocate in a way that accepts the shortcomings, stands up and asks the internal accuser to recognize their goodness, their soul beauty, their Royalty. It is my hope that I can help others as I help myself live more honestly hopeful.
