With the release of The Creek Drank the Cradle in 2002, Iron and Wine joined the forefront of a small group of indie-folk musicians that would come to redefine the music scene for the next decade. That, however, has not prevented Sam Beam - the man behind Iron and Wine - from redefining his own sound over the course of his career. Beginning with 2007's The Shepard's Dog, Beam introduced full band compositions, which provided room for variety and playfulness. Praising his ability to adapt and challenge himself, NPR called Beam "a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas into simple arrangements and vice versa." Rolling Stone said of Beam's latest effort, 2013's Ghost on Ghost, "The best tunes here are the kind of dreams that will stay on your mind long after waking."
