Bio

Beszhak (pronounced beige-ack) has a mixed voice of roots rock, pop and jazz. Hailing from Seattle, the trio's lineup consists of vocalist and songwriter Isaiah Washington, guitarist and songwriter Sean Beszhak and vocalist, percussionist and songwriter Craig Headlee. At Beszhak’s inception in the fall of 2003, Sean and Craig began to jam for fun in their spare time. As the duo learned to play together, Sean started writing songs of his own and before they knew it, the two were offered consistent gigs at the Lyon’s Den, a hot spot for Cascadia college students. In May of 2004, friend and songwriter Isaiah Washington began to sit in on Beszhak practice sessions and was asked to join the band full time, allowing Sean to expand on his already dynamic guitar ability. As the trio played more and more shows at the Lyon’s Den, they began to develop quite a following on the Eastside catching the eye and ear of local artist Levi Ware. He immediately invited Beszhak to open for his band, the funk-pop super-group Vast Capital, at Seattle’s Suite G. Beszhak has since played with local acts Ordinary State, Kristina Speed, Katie Davis, and Bradbury Press hitting such stages as the Dubliner, Ballard Firehouse, EMP Liquid Lounge, The Rock Bottom, Bay Street Coffee, The Starlight and performed at Western and Central Washington Universities. Beszhak's sound is a diverse one. They are influenced by legends like Joao Gilberto, Van Morrison, and John Lennon and they resemble modern acts such as Ben Harper, Damien Rice, and Seu Jorge. The greatest trait of Beszhak is the range of talent of each member of Beszhak. Sean, Isaiah and Craig all have the ability and charisma to front a group of their own, but chose to collaborate with each other instead. Because of their willingness to share leads, vocals and ideas, Beszhak continues to construct songs with natural progressions, meaningful lyrics, smooth melodies and beautiful harmonies. Beszhak is always writing and performing and plans to play shows all summer long in the Northwest and perhaps beyond. www.beszhak.com
