Bio

Christian Beach is a New Jersey-based singer-songwriter who has been part of the tri-state-area 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, Christian 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., and The Band. Around this same time, Beach spent some time playing keyboards and guitar for Michael Ferentino’s (Love In Reverse, Dog) band Transfusion M, appearing on its lone 2005 album and accompanying the group for a leg of the 2006 Vans Warped Tour. Beach’s first solo release, a self-titled CD, came out 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. Since then, Christian has worked on a number of new songs, some of which have been made available exclusively online. However, a new EP is expected in the first half of 2020.
