Stephen Beebout's New Album is here! April 30, 2018 02:28

Stephen Beebout: Daddy's Dollar Dream

It's out today!! Daddy's Dollar Dream is the debut full length from Stephen Beebout. The American musician behind Urban Scandal Records fled the comfort of San Francisco to record his follow up to Morning Incense & God. The album was recorded in a smoked out North Hollywood studio over two sessions and resulted in a multi-tracked blend of indie rock, folk and bedroom pop. Stream it on Apple Music or Spotify.


New Music: Stephen Beebout's "Movie Scenes" April 16, 2018 23:01

Stephen Beebout: "Movie Scenes" - Cover Art

The second single off of Stephen Beebout's new album, Daddy's Dollar Dream, is out today! "Movie Scenes" is a moving acoustic based track sung to a past lover. Beebout hooks you with the opening line and from that moment on you're no longer just a listener. You're a part of the story. The lyric "It's okay if the only time we talk is when we're sharing art, sharing movie scenes" hits home to anyone who has moved on from a person that you once shared everything with. The somber melody and reflective lyrics are complimented by a wet and reverb soaked organ part that is reminiscent of Phantom Limb era music from The Shins. This raw and vulnerable track is quite possibly the most personal release in Stephen's growing catalog. The new single is available to stream on Apple Music and Spotify.


Stephen Beebout: Daddy's Dollar Dream Music Video April 10, 2018 11:43

We are pleased to present the music video for "Daddy's Dollar Dream". Stephen Beebout enlisted the help of Julian Larkin (founder of The Dus Room) and André Kushnir to film and act in the visual representation of the song. This project was filmed in the Excelsior District of San Francisco while a young person was gunning down a barber shop blocks away. The violent atmosphere was heard all over the raw footage and resulted in an focused, serious, and unusually playful (at times) video. Stephen's debut album is due out on 4/30/18. You can find a pre-order copy of Daddy's Dollar Dream for the discounted price of $5 right here.
