His namesake band, JABE, has won the Abe Oleman Songwriting Award from The Songwriting Hall of Fame as well as Boston Music Awards. Four self-produced, self-released albums along with extensive U.S. and European tours have earned JABE a reputation as one of Boston's best and hardest working live acts. Beyer's side project, The Benders, bloomed into alt-country-bluegrass favorites, embraced nationally by the press and a hardcore fanbase. With great songs and honest-to-the-bone live shows, The Boston Globe hailed JABE as 'a leader in the roots music renaissance,' and Jam Magazine listed his 2-disc album Drama City at Number 2 in their Best 100 Albums of The Last 10 Years. A multi-instrumentalist, producer and prolific writer, Beyer is releasing his 4th album, Where Are We Going & When Do We Get There on Hi-N-Dry records. With the help of the area's best musicians and mixed by sonic wizard Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, The Pixies), Where Are We Going & When Do We Get There shows that Beyer has grown beyond his cowpunk past and continues to evolve as an inspired songwriter and musician.
