INTERVIEW AND SESSION FILMED FOR BALCONY TV LONDON

BEARDYMAN is Darren Foreman. Beardyman begins his transition from performing artist to recording artist with the announcement of his debut album to be released in February 2011 after becoming a marquee signing for superstar DJ, festival king and uber-successful clubland groover Rob da Bank and his label Sunday Best. Beardyman's live odyssey reached epic proportions throughout the summer culminating with possibly the greatest 3 minutes of the year at Reading & Leeds Festival (check out 24:00 to 27:00 min). His performance turned the Alternative Stage, which had earlier played host to various comedians, into the unofficial 'Rave Tent' for Reading. As the afternoon sun streamed in it all went a bit Beardy. The overspill from the tent was bigger than the Gulf of Mexico Deep Water Horizon slick. Arms were most definitely aloft and at one point someone lost their trousers!
Whilst Beardyman might be known only for his beatboxing exploits, he is far from just another beatboxer. He is a musician with superhuman-like abilities and his voice is his superpower and his instrument. His sets boast dazzling variety, changes in beat-fuelled freakouts, a unique approach to a wide array of genres and a vivacious sense of humor - all of which set him apart from his peers and establishes him as being far more than a novelty jaw warmer. A genius savant would be a better way of looking at him.
