Both accomplished singer-songwriters in their own right, Ben Jones and Andrea Magee make up the duo known as Beat Root. Both had released solo recordings before meeting at a show in London in 2013. They were both there for individual performances, and found that their musical chemistry was unmatchable. In February of the following year, they made their performing debut on a self-funded, self booked 3 month tour of the USA, taking their particular brand of contemporary Blues/Folk from the West Coast to the East. They made waves at an impromptu appearance at SXSW in Austin, TX, picking up a support slot with Dale Watson, and winning a fan in the form of Lucinda Williams.

Jones and Magee incorporate elements of classic 60s Pop, Folk, Blues, Rock n Roll and Indie Rock to create an exciting, organic, honest sound, with no technical jiggery pokery, relying instead on good old fashioned showmanship and mastery of their craft to paint their musical pictures, with influences ranging from The Beatles to Van Morrison.

They recorded their debut album together, "Waiting On A Miracle", in June of 2014 in Austin, TX, and it was released in November 2014 on Toulouse Records. They've subsequently recorded with Tommy Harden (Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift) in Nashville to capture their live sound for an upcoming release titled, "The Root of The Beat".

They signed with Toulouse Records, a New Orleans based label, in 2015.
