In 2007, Jabe Beyer won the BMI Music Maker Songwriting Competition, was nominated for two Boston Music Awards, as well as a nomination in the WFNX FM Best Music Poll. With over 300 songs in his catalog, his namesake band, JABE, won the Abe Oleman Songwriting Award from The Songwriting Hall of Fame as well as a Boston Music Award for Outstanding Debut Album. Six self-produced, self-released albums along with extensive U.S. and European tours earned JABE a reputation as one of Boston's best and hardest working live acts. The Boston Globe hailed Jabe Beyer as "a leader in the roots music renaissance," and Jam Magazine listed the 2-disc album Drama City at Number 2 in their Best 100 Albums of The Last 10 Years. Beyer's side project, The Benders, bloomed into alt-country-bluegrass favorites, embraced nationally by the press and a hardcore fanbase. He has also worked as a sideman guitarist and keyboard player, performing with Kris Delmhorst, Dennis Brennan, Sarah Borges & The Broken Singles, Bow Thayer, and others. Beyer has had numerous film & television placements including HBO’s hit series True Blood, and FOX’s Lie To Me. He lives in Nashville, TN.
