Beck Hansen Short Bio

Beck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell , Los Angeles, California, July 8, 1970), known in the artistic world as Beck b), is a American musician, singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist. With its experimental sound, Beck rose to fame in the 1990s with his lo-fi style, and became known for creating musical collages from a wide range of styles. His recordings cover all kinds of styles such as folk, funk, soul, alternative rock, hip-hop, electronics, country and psychedelia. Beck has released twelve studio albums, as well as several singles not included in his albums and a book of scores.

Born in Los Angeles in 1970, Beck, who was not very interested in academic studies, grew up listening to a myriad of different sounds, such as folk, blues, country, rock, pop, psychedelia or jazz, something key to his development as a musician. In the mid-80s he began performing in the Californian city and recording his first homemade productions, such as the demo The Banjo Story. In New York, the anti-folk movement had been promoted, a series of artists trying to rekindle this traditional music, essentially acoustic, with punk attitudes. Beck, like many others, among others, Jeff Lewis, Adam Green, Ben Kweller or Regina Spektor, signed up for this trend. He left for the Big Apple in 1989 and there he shaped his traces as an artist. A short time later he returned to California to play folk with his hat, acoustic guitar and harmonica. Soon it caught the attention of Tom Rothrock and Rob Schnapf, who put him in the hands of producer Karl Stephenson (producer of the Geto Boys) to record on Bongload Records several tracks.

With a variety of musical styles, ironic song lyrics, postmodern arrangements that incorporate samples, drum machines, instruments and live sound effects, Beck has been acclaimed by critics throughout his musical career as one of the most creative and idiosyncratic musicians of 1990 and 2000. Four-time platinum-winning artist, he became popular in underground culture with his early works, which combined social criticism (as in “MTV Makes Me Want to Smoke Crack” and ” Deep Fried Love “) with musical and lyrical experimentation. The first time he gained wide public attention was his single “Loser”, a 1994 hit. Two of Beck’s most popular and acclaimed recordings are Odelay (1996) and Sea Change (2002) .Odelay was awarded with the album of the year by the American magazine Rolling Stone and in the United Kingdom by the magazines NME and Mojo. This album also received a Grammy nomination as Album of the Year. Both Odelay and Sea Change appeared on the list of the 500 best albums of all time according to Rolling Stone. In February 2014, Beck released the album Morning Phase, with which he won the Grammy Award in the Album of the Year category, on February 8, 2015.
