Beechwood take "Sleep Without Dreaming" to Groningen in October01-07-2022
Jarring, streetwise, darkly shimmering rock & roll, Beechwood is a New York City band born out of necessity. Formed by a pair of close neighborhood friends, Beechwood initially developed a buzz in the small clubs and DIY spaces of New York City, honing their unpredictable, frenzied live performances (twice leading to mid-show arrests) while building a dedicated following.
Beechwood dropped their debut album Trash Glamour in 2015, but it was with 2018's Songs from the Land of Nod and Inside The Flesh Hotel that they began attracting a significant audience outside of the NYC area. Centered around the close knit songwriting and guitar-weaving partnership of Gordon Lawrence and Sid Simons, also featuring Russ Yusuf on drums and recent addition Jensen Gore on bass -Beechwood's 4th studio album entitled Sleep Without Dreaming has been released early this year.
Balancing the sonic edge of mid-seventies proto-punk bands such as NY Dolls and Television with the pop sensibility of classic rock groups such as the Kinks, Rolling Stones and even the Beatles, NYC rock band Beechwood is authentically rock and roll. Centered around the close-knit songwriting and guitar-weaving partnership of Gordon Lawrence and Sid Simons, “Sleep Without Dreaming” is packed with stellar songs and displays a sonically powerful production.
"Whenever I listen to Beechwood, I am reminded of the depth they achieve and how fearlessly they let it all hang out there. “Sleep Without Dreaming” is really, really good. They’ve got something unique and cool happening here". – Henry Rollins
In October the band will play one exclusive show in the Netherlands:
06/10: Groningen, NL - Vera
