Making Lemonade

Have you heard the one where construction fell behind schedule?  Yep, so have we. In case you missed the news, BBP is upgrading our digs to a new home base & project studio here in the Portland, OR area.  And, yes, you guessed it - the build-out is taking "just" a little longer than expected.  However, the show must go on.  Temporary measures must be taken:

We've been working with many extremely talented musicians this year and we are super excited about finishing up the final details, editing, and mixing the whole lot of them to bring you some really nice songs in the near future.  Stay tuned for the announcements and sneak peeks!

The Mixing Begins

Hello, faithful BentBeat followers!  Just a quick update to let you know that we've been busy tracking several very talented artists over the past several months and now comes time for the detail work: MIXING.  Yes, yes.  The long hours of listening to :01 second of music to determine if that snare hit was "just right."

Off we go ... see you on the other side.

Josh Hoke Releases Debut Album "Ghosts and Glory"


Josh Hoke delivers his highly anticipated debut album, “Ghosts and Glory,” available on Amazon.com, iTunes, and all major music sites.

Josh Hoke Releases Debut Album
Portland, OR, March 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- “Ghosts and Glory” is a collection of songs written and performed by Portland-based singer/songwriter Josh Hoke. The album has 10 tracks that reflect the recent folk resurgence. “What started out as a simple acoustic project quickly evolved into a more musically abstract collection of songs. Adding banjo was an early decision,” said Hoke, who performed multiple roles on every track. ”Adding other musicians and bringing in additional talent gave each song its own feel, and was an unexpectedly fun part of the project. We wanted this to be an album you could listen to from start to finish, so deciding exactly which songs should appear on the record was an interesting challenge.”

Hoke originally hails from Indianapolis and relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2011. Since arriving in Portland he has become a mainstay among the burgeoning folk music scene that has recently infiltrated the Northwest. “The Portland community of artists is very welcoming,” said Hoke. “I’m very grateful to have landed among a group of people that is so accepting of new musicians and open to working and performing together. The essence of the album definitely stems from my roots, but the final product absolutely reflects all the artists from the greater Northwest that have influenced me over the past two years.”

The LP is produced by Jozi Bently and Dave Beatty of BentBeat Productions. The trio began collaborating in early 2012. “Josh initially caught our attention as a solo act, performing locally. It was immediately apparent to us that his style of music and level of talent would be a good match for the BentBeat Label,” said Bently. “We spent a lot of time working with Josh and his musicians to create a project that would be accessible to anyone who turned on a radio yet truly unique to Josh’s style and vision. ‘Ghosts and Glory’ definitely achieves that, and we are super proud of Josh for this fantastic first release.”

The full length CD “Ghosts and Glory” is available for purchase on Amazon.com or can be downloaded from iTunes, Spotify, and all major music sites.
