COVID-19 Statement from BentBeat Productions

BentBeat Productions halts all in-person studio events to help flatten the curve of the coronavirus.

Portland, OR, March 23, 2020 - - BentBeat Productions announced today that they will halt all in-person production activities at their studio until the "Stay Home, Save Lives" order is lifted in Oregon.

"We have an extensive list of session musicians and engineers who are already working with BentBeat from their at-home studios," said BentBeat owner, Dave Beatty.  "We have a couple of full projects already in the works that will keep our team busy for this period of time."  In January, artist Billie Eilish and her brother/producer Finneas made headlines by winning five of the six GRAMMY Awards they were nominated for, including the night's four biggest prizes.  All from an album produced in their spare bedroom.  

BentBeat is expecting to resume normal daily operations as soon as the rules change to allow for art studios to open again.  The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting artists worldwide and musicians are among the hardest hit. 

"There is no replacement for a live performance that goes unplayed or a song that doesn't get created during this time," Beatty continued.  "Please join us in doing all we can to help support art and the creators who bring us the joy that accompanies it."
