The Beast is an innovative and electrifying hip hop and jazz ensemble, known for pushing creative boundaries and dynamic collaborations. Straight out of Durham, the cultural and entrepreneurial nexus of a new south, The Beast is a home-grown artistic force, mixing tap-dancers, puppeteers, and spoken word artists into its repertoire. Comprised of professor, community organizer, and emcee Pierce Freelon, keyboardist Eric W Hirsh, drummer Stephen Coffman, and bassist Peter Kimosh, The Beast has thus far executed a Duke University-commissioned big band project, curated residencies at the North Carolina Museum of Art, and toured Panama as featured in a PBS web-series. The quartet is currently finishing its second full-length album with Philly-native producer/drummer Steve McKie (Bilal, Jill Scott, Musiq, et al).
