Noelle Bean, better known as Bean, has quite the fanbase. Her Beanies adore her, and it’s easy to see why. Her upbeat, fun personality, and unique sound (not to mention her amazing sense of style!) instantly draws anyone in. And with the recent release of her single “Cops and Robbers,” there’s no doubt you’ll be seeing her name pop up everywhere you look.
B: I got into the industry by putting myself out there to the world with a YouTube video of one of my original songs. Everybody was so sweet that as I continued writing, I would keep posting videos on YouTube! From there, I was very fortunate to have met my amazing manager, Adam Mehl, August of 2011. Since our first meeting, we’ve been working to the bone to get our feet off the ground and it’s been the best year of my life!
L20: You have such a unique sound! What influenced you into producing the retro-pop vibe?
B: I grew up with a mom who listened to lots and lots of retro music. For example, Sonny and Cher, Motown, etc. So I had no choice but to love that old-school sound. It’s all I’ve ever known really… Well, besides the Spice Girls. LOVED them growing up!
L20: Tell us about your single “Cops and Robbers”!
B: I am super pumped to announce that “Cops And Robbers,” my first-ever single, will be released on iTunes September 25th! Go buy it!
B: I love to travel and luckily my very first time out of the U.S. was to perform in the wealthiest part of the world- -Monaco. On this already amazing trip, I ran into Prince Albert, who at the time, I had no idea who he was! Such a nice fellow.
L20: Not only do we love your music, but we love your look! What’s the easiest way for readers to steal your style?
B: The easiest way for me to describe my style to someone is exactly how my music is influenced. Very retro! Kerchiefs, red lips, simple cat liner on the eyes, and heels. Sometimes I add a little grunge in to show my tough side but, nonetheless, I am very much a girlie girl.
L20: What are 3 things you can’t live without?
B: My mini Martin guitar, my best friend, Jana Hall, and mascara.
L20: If a celebrity asked you to marry them right now, who would you say “yes” to?
B: Oh gosh, I’d probably tell them that I’d at least need to be asked on one date before marriage. Haha! But, if I was to pick one guy, it’d certainly be Chris Hemsworth. Ridiculously dreamy.
L20: Who is your role model and why?
B: My mother, most definitely. Our family has been through quite a bit and through everything, she is so positive and strong. She’s my hero and I love to know that she is so supportive. When it’s hard to even have a smile, she always wears one in case any person she comes across needs hers.
L20: What are your goals for the future?
B: Near future goals: sell 30,000 singles for my song, “Cops And Robbers”!
