Who We Are :: Stephen ‘Beanz‘ Rudden ~ Musician|Producer|Songwriter has traveled a long and winding road of music that stretches from Irish reels and English punk to techno-pop and music for films, video games and kids’ cartoons. Beanz showed early interest in music when at age 4 he began tapping out perfect rhythm to his Dad’s Beatles and Bob Dylan records with pencils on the sofa cushion. By the tender age 10, Stephen was in his first band –The Mighty Midgets – kickin’ out the Steppenwolf and Pink Floyd jams.
He has been working in the music business for over 20+ years as a record producer, composer, keyboard player arranger, programmer and performer throughout London, Europe and Asia. His strengths are in Pop, Techno and Acoustic music. His passion is working with creatives of all fields, by luring and conjuring up the best performance out of the many artists he works with.
His inspiring approach to music and songwriting really does make a difference. He pushes boundaries to create and fuse vibrance, by twisting and turning the list of performance possibilities. He’s keen to make some new noise in the pop music arena making more music that springs from wherever his imagination takes him.
Throughout the last 5 years Beanz has returned to the Eurovision scene, writing songs for Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Malta and many others.
Subsequently, due in part to his penchant for both producing and writing, Beanz has traveled far and wide as an invited guest on a multitude of song camps from Scandinavia (Roasting House, GL Music), Holland (DWB), Greece (Black Rock), The UK (UKTI/Notting Hill), all the way over to Nashville, TN.
One of his most recent collaborative projects yielded him a cut on the recent release of multi-platinum selling J-Pop boy band sensation, ‘Arashi’ – with the single garnering sales of 650,000+! [02/09/15]. This success was followed by yet another cut on J-pop sensation, ‘Nissy‘ on the artist album, ‘Hocus Pocus’. A storm of excitement on Twitter helped to drive the album to the No.1 position on iTunes (Japan) on the first day of it’s release (March 2016).
That same year, a chance meeting at the BUMA music conference in Amsterdam, led to several collaborative projects with the young, prolifically talented composer, Tom Player of Lost Track Productions (UK).
The summer of 2017 saw Beanz and family make the giant leap across the pond to Los Angeles in pursuit of new musical adventures!
All the key elements seem to be falling right into place for Beanz to blow a fresh wind of pop music across the continents. And his mission remains the same. “I’ve traveled some very strange territories in my time, but music always transcends everything,” he concludes. “When people can bond on music, they can get on in anything. I’m just looking to make good honest songs…something worthwhile that people will enjoy 20 years from now.”
From this base Beanz continues to work on varied and interesting projects as a music producer and songwriter for Plutonic Productions. He is defining his own inimitable production style, and just occasionally, you might find him strumming the guitar strings…(or making his own home-brewed bitter or red wine)!
