Stage of History is a Lincoln based experimental music act. Blending genres from Dance to Indie, Rock to Electronica and more, Stage’s goal is to create a diverse soundscape. All music is written and sequenced by Andrew Beeken who also plays guitar and keys.

The relaunch…

It’s been nearly two years… two years!

While I’ve been working on some new music during that time I’ve struggled to find something I’m truly happy with, but I’m pleased to say that things have come together over the last few months and I’m working on pulling together a 10 track album.

I think, going back and listening to some of my earlier work, there is a definite maturing of sound here, as well as less of a reliance on guitars. I’ve released one track from the album, “Only Human”, on Soundcloud and embedded it below. I don’t have a name for the album yet but that should come soon.

A few of the tracks still need finishing, so I’ll be working on that over the coming weeks; following that I’ll be stitching everything together and figuring out the flow and connecting material. It’s a lot more heavily focussed on songs this time round.

Anyway, here’s “Only Human” – enjoy!

Back with a new track!

Hello folks – it’s been a while. Over a year to be exact. I’ve been off doing other projects in that time but also tinkering with various different ideas both for Stage of History and other music projects. I’ve decided it’s time to put something out online so, here it is. The first new track taken from a forthcoming EP I’m going to be putting out on BandCamp later this month. It’s called Freshly Sliced and you can listen to it below. Let me know what you think!

New Track: Red Robin

Two Week Tracks makes a long delayed return!

What was a Christmas hiatus has turned into nearly five months with no Two Week tracks releases. To make up for that, here’s a track that nearly made the cut onto The Rebellion, Red Robin. This would have been the second track on the album but I found it was too similar in structure to the albums title song which would have succeeded it, and decided to take it out of the running. Finally, here it is. It’s an instrumental as I could never find lyrics to fit it and it’s also a free download, so enjoy! Listen to and download the track below.

Two Week Tracks

Hello all! It’s been a while since the last update – real life things and whatnot! But, I’ve started working on some new material following The Rebellion with an aim to get an EP out early next year. I’ve been experimenting with some different styles that I’m VERY pleased with so I hope to be able to share that in the coming months.

In the meantime, I’ve been looking at some of my unreleased material and giving it a bit of spit and polish. I’ve decided to start putting some of this out onto Soundcloud where they will be available as free downloads; there will be a new track every two weeks so I’ve thrown them all into a playlist called Two Week Tracks (funnily enough!)

The first track hit last week and was a song called Transmit which I’ve been working on for a couple of years now. It’s never really fitted into any of my larger works so here it is as a solo track. This week sees the release of A Dozen Boogie Robots which is a jaunty little electro-pop instrumental.


The Rebellion – Out Now!

The Rebellion – out 21st April 2014!

The Rebellion will be hitting BandCamp on the 21st April 2014! This newest album will blend indie and hard rock sounds with electronic grooves and beats creating an eclectic mix of genres. Check the Stage of history page on BandCamp to find more releases and listen to the third track from the album, the atmospheric Forthright Discovery, below!

New Track! The Shattering of Kings

And here’s another new track from The Rebellion for you; a Progressive Rock styled instrumental, The Shattering of Kings. Have a listen and watch out for The Rebellion soon!

New Track: Glitter

Here it is! The first track taken from the long gestating LP “The Rebellion”! It’s called Glitter and it’s a bit of a departure from the usual SoH sound. The Rebellion as a whole will mix instrumentals with songs, taking the sound in a different direction. I’m trying some different things on here and I should hopefully have it available on BandCamp soon, once I’ve finished the final mix on the tracks! In the meantime, listen to Glitter and let me know what you think!

New Track: A Theory About Unicorns

So things have been a bit quiet on here of late. I’ve been working on some new music and figuring out what tracks fit together for a fairly sizeable release next year. I’m about sorted with that and I’m looking to move into a final mixing and mastering phase after the new year. I’ve started playing around with Adobe Audition and I’ll be using that to stitch everything together. In the meantime I’ve decided to release some solo tracks that haven’t made the cut to the album, starting with this one. Check it out below; it’s a free download so help yourself!


New Release – A Different Kind of Mourning

The New EP, A Different Kind of Mourning, is out NOW and available to listen to and buy below. If you like it, consider a purchase – it’s only a single pound for these six tracks!
