Beacon are an Indie-Folk band from Brighton.

Biography (In Their Own Words)

Beacon are a breath of fresh, country air, serving up their unique take on indie/folk music. Although they have been playing and writing music together for a number of years, the four friends decided to come together in 2016 as Beacon.

Inspired by artists such as Joshua Radin, Ray La Montagne, John Mayer, The Shires, Passenger and Adam Barnes, Beacon focus on writing music with meaningful lyrics drawn from life experiences, soft vocals, close harmonies and memorable instrumental riffs.

After honing their sound, writing music and gigging regularly in and around the South-East of England, Beacon are now working towards recording their debut EP, due for release in late 2018. Soon after forming they won the Acoustic category of Horsham Battle of the Bands 2016. Some memorable events involve gigs in their hometown, Brighton, at venues including Molly Malone’s, The West Hill Tavern and The Richmond.

After playing as part of a live showcase for Crawley Hospital Radio, Beacon were described as having ‘Very chilled vibes evocative of London Grammar and each song had the feeling it was still evolving which is fascinating amongst the manufactured repetitive beats that can dominate the mainstream charts.’
