Anywhere in Boston where good music is being made, chances are Jabe Beyer is in on it. Whether on the stage, in the studio, or in the audience trying not to fall down. His namesake band, JABE, has won the Abe Oleman Songwriting Award from The Songwriting Hall of Fame as well as Boston Music Awards and numerous nominations. Three self-produced, self-released albums along with extensive U.S. and European tours have earned JABE a reputation as one of Boston's best and hardest working live acts. Beyer's side project, The Benders, bloomed into alt-country-bluegrass favorites, embraced nationally by the press and a hardcore fanbase. With great songs and honest-to-the-bone live shows, The Boston Globe hailed JABE as "a leader in the roots music renaissance," and Jam Magazine listed his 2-disc album Drama City at Number 2 in their Best 100 Albums of The Last 10 Years. A multi-instrumentalist, producer and prolific writer, Beyer is releasing his 4th album, Where Are We Going & When Do We Get There on Hi-N-Dry records. With the help of the area's best musicians and mixed by sonic wizard Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, The Pixies), Where Are We Going & When Do We Get There shows that Beyer has grown beyond his cowpunk past and continues to evolve as an inspired songwriter and musician.
