For over a decade, Sam Beam has been creating music under the name Iron And Wine. Beam's cinematic songs have charmed listeners through five albums, numerous EPs and singles and the Archive series. Sam stopped by MTPR’s studios in fall 2017, where he recorded acoustic versions of several of his most popular songs and talked with host John Floridis about trusting his own trajectory and "getting lost in your own process and enthusiasms, because that's your only duty, as an artist."
