Christian Beach is a New Jersey-based singer-songwriter who has been part of the Jersey Shore music scene since the late 1980s. As the driving force behind several bands (Slave of Id, Artists That Kill, Ton of Bricks) from the early 1990s through early 2000s, he played some of New Jersey’s legendary clubs like the Green Parrot, The Stone Pony, The Brighton Bar, and The Fast Lane. In 2005, Beach spent some time playing keyboards and guitar for Transfusion M, a project fronted by Michael Ferentino (Love In Reverse, Dog), appearing on that band’s lone 2005 album and accompanying the group for a leg of the 2006 Vans Warped Tour. Upon his return from the road, Beach branched out on his own as a singer-songwriter inspired by American roots and folk music, and heavily influenced by Bob Dylan, Hank Williams Sr., The Band, and more contemporary artists like Jeff Tweedy. Beach’s first solo album, Christian Beach, was released in 2009. Music journalist Gary Wien ranked it as one of the top 100 albums by New Jersey artists between 2001 and 2010, with its lead track “Open Spaces” in the No. 77 slot among the top 100 songs by New Jersey artists in that same span. After 11 years, Beach released his follow-up project, a six-song EP titled DoubleLife that was released in early April 2020. On January 1, 2021, Beach is slated to release Basement Noise, a 13-song collection of refurbished demos of material recorded but never released in the decade between the two previous records.
