Tell me about your history? How did you get where you are now?
Beyette was born when a music-making addiction took over a hopeful future film director's career. After composing 7 instrumental albums, Beyette took on a new rock sound with the live/fully vocalized production, "Change". Beyette is featured on Bullmoose's shelves, worldwide on all the popular music stores, and on the counter of the Brighton Ave 7-Eleven in Portland, Maine, Friday nights. Beyette has been composing and performing music since January 2000. In 2008, after 7 albums and many instruments, the album, "Change" started a new era for Beyette. Finally released in 2009, after two genuine release attempts, the new album only has two sequenced layers, everything else is performed on a live instrument. There's a new limitation that has empowered the consistent sound (new to the Beyette style) of the entire album and that is the discipline behind being restricted to instruments that could be played in a 6 piece band. The new sound is that of alternative rock which is a departure from the instrumental explorations of the previous 7 albums. 2008 saw that Beyette has also become a live act. After three rearrangements of the live players, the next show should be a big success.

Have you performed live in front of an audience? Any special memories?
I've played at the Station, in Portland ME, and I liked it. The Big Easy was something else.
