Born and raised in North London, Jazmin Bean (they/them) has set a towering bar for modern pop music, not only as a singer-songwriter but as a multimedia artist. Playing with the friction between vulnerability and persona, nightmare and fantasy, trauma and recovery, the multifaceted performer invites listeners into their unparalleled universe of alternative, infectious pop.
Aged just 16, Bean released their self-funded, self-directed breakthrough debut single, ‘Worldwide Torture’ on YouTube. Since its launch in 2019, the grassroots track has racked up an impressive 5.2 million views on the platform, while the follow-up single ‘Saccharine’ has garnered over 62 million views and counting.
In 2020, Bean released their debut independent EP, Worldwide Torture; a five-track record that balances hard-as-nails lyricism with dreamlike breaks, melodic pop choruses and trap metal inflections. The EP was an instant hit with fans and critics alike, achieving over 200 million streams globally. The Worldwide Torture EP was later reissued by Island and Interscope Records in November 2020 with six additional tracks. To date, Bean has amassed over half a billion streams.
Bean released the defiant ‘Carnage’ featuring pop artist Lucy Loone in late 2022, and the Acoustic Church Session EP in 2023, containing stripped-back versions of ‘Carnage’, ‘Little Lamb’, ‘Yandere’ and ‘Saccharine’ - plus an ethereal cover of ‘Teen Idle’ by MARINA. With an avalanche of new music on the way, Jazmin Bean will release their debut album in 2023 and will perform at Download in the summer.
