Pop songstress Bean takes pride in doing things a little differently. The classically-trained pianist started out learning her favourite melodies by ear, and then began writing her own music at age eleven.
Bean has been tapping into her quirky yet accessible style, as she works on her upcoming EP with producers Carlin Hiebert and Los Angeles-based Adrian Bradford.
