After more than 10 years in the game, Essex born songwriter Beans on Toast has become something of a cult figure. He’s written and recorded 9 albums, he’s played every bar, club, venue, pub, festival, party and honky tonk you can think of and he’s showing no signs of slowing down, he’s loved every minute of it.

He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues. Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Love songs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honest lyrics and quick wit.

“..he can capture your attention and imagination with a sense of humour, and you’ll come out the other end of it a little bit more educated.” Punktastic

The Beans on Toast live show is an odd and unpredictable experience. A singer,

storyteller and guitar player his self-deprecating quality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrier between musician and audience, creating a sense

of equality.

“Music brings people together in a way few things do, and live shows more so. But there’s something even more special about gigs with Beans on Toast.”

Cultured Vultures

His latest album “Cushty” is up there with his best, and the critics agree. Each of his albums are produced by different people in different places bringing a new flavour. We can all rest easy knowing that this December there will be a new Beans on Toast record released on Xtra Mile Recordings.

«A politically relevant prolific wordsmith» CLASH

Over the course of his career he’s sold out countless headline shows. Explored England’s small towns (and made a documentary called Small Town Celebrations). Played sold out arena shows with his old pal Frank Turner. Played on a cruise to the Bahamas with Flogging Molly. Played festivals in the deserts of South Africa. Traveled 10,000 miles playing shows around North America and plays Glastonbury Festival every year, his 2016 Glastonbury show on the Avalon stage being his biggest yet with an unprecedented turn out bulging out the sides of tent. It was incredible.

Beans on Toast is an honest guy, he stays true to his ethics and he tells it how it is.

In these troubled times, perhaps we need a protest singer, and some optimism.
