Jarring, streetwise, darkly shimmering rock & roll – Beechwood is a New York City band born out of necessity. Formed by a pair of close neighborhood friends as teenagers, Beechwood initially developed a buzz in the small clubs and DIY spaces of New York City, honing their unpredictable, frenzied live performances (twice even leading to mid-show arrests) while building a dedicated following. Beechwood released their debut album Trash Glamour (Lolipop! Records) in 2016, but it wasn’t until 2018’s Songs From The Land of Nod and Inside the Flesh Hotel (Alive Naturalsound Records) that they began attracting a significant audience outside of the NYC area. Centered around the close-knit songwriting and guitar-weaving partnership of Gordon Lawrence and Sid Simons, also featuring Russ Yusuf on drums and recent addition Jensen Gore on bass – Beechwood’s 4th studio album Sleep Without Dreaming is out now on Alive Naturalsound Records.
BEECHWOOD is Gordon Lawrence (guitar/vocals), Russ Yusuf (drums), Sid Simons (guitar/vocals), and Jensen Gore (bass)
