Eddie Bean is a Manhattan-based composer and artist. Recent musical scores include Miceburg (The Latest Draft, 2021), Revelation, Manhattan (Green Room 42, 2020), love/fantasy (Downtown Urban Arts Festival, 2019), The House on Haunted Hill (interACT Theater, 2019), Adult Stuff Or: What I Learned At Summer Camp (Emerging Artists’ Theatre, 2018), and the radioplays Live From the El Shanghai (2020) and Theatre of Christ (Desperate Nightmares, 2017). His former band, The Gazebo, released an improvisatory art-rock album Hiding Places in October 2016.
He has assisted acclaimed musical theatre composer JRB on multitudinous projects since 2015. He formed his first band, The Ed Cat Relationship, at the age of 10. In middle school he attempted to spearhead a comedy ska band and then spent his formative years playing progressive rock at dive bars.
He studied Music Theory and Composition at NYU and is a classically trained pianist. He writes songs, lyrics, musicals, and theatrical scores. Like any reputable metropolitan artist with a website, his music comes from a place of nostalgic aesthetics reimagined through extortionate technical training.
