The man behind the Phantom — Jesse Beaman does it his way with My Empty Phantom.


"A kid came to my Toronto show because he said he was watching my YouTube and Vimeo videos," he said. "It was my first time to play in Toronto! Crazy world these days!"

With the internet seeming to have engineered Phantom better than any album sales and/or distribution could, I asked him whether he needs to release a record to stay relevant. He fell somewhat on the side of Stevens. "Lately I've been thinking a song never has to be finished," he said. "Especially since recordings can easily be changed and always redone. I like the idea of an album never really coming to an end."

That said, Beaman is reluctantly mulling the self-release of a few EP's this year at his online store. "Mainly just cause it's interesting, not for the money," he said. "It's like a science project or something." •
