As one half of 8mm's creative core, Sean Beavan’s reputation precedes him, having mixed and produced records for Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt and countless others, picking up a Grammy nomination for his talents in the process. His wife and muse, vocalist Juliette Beavan, is a gorgeous seduction in a dream wrapped in a silken voice that draws you into an atmosphere of sensuality and power with the sweetest kind of hypnosis. Together, the duo known as 8mm bring the fire with seasoned professionalism and irresistible allure.
The Los Angeles outfit recently released their excellent fifth album Between The Devil & Two Black Hearts to glowing reviews, and we'd be hard-pressed to cock a surprised eyebrow if a bit of a baby boom didn't follow nine months after the release. Their ability to straddle breathless beauty and grinding grooves inspires hedonistic indulgence with a rockin' eroticism that must be seen in the flesh – and damned if it's not the sexiest thing you've ever laid ears on.
Having perfected their formula and delivered a fantastic collection of new songs, 8mm are currently embarking on a national tour in support of Between The Devil & Two Black Hearts. Before setting off, however, the band agreed to be the first act in our CraveOnstage series, where we bring you exclusive studio sessions from some of the best & brightest names modern music has to offer! Sean Beavan was kind enough to personally mix the audio from the session as well, to bring you the best possible sound.
