Album Notes
The soundscapes of the South Pacific, mellow and smooth without haste. Beach was formed in Queenstown, New Zealand between a guitar player who sings like a crocodile and a beautiful songstress who was in search of a guitar boy. Beach have toured all over the globe and tend to frequent warm relaxing places. The rest of the band was formed by chance meetings and good luck. The first beach album is achieving great critical success but so far has not reached the commercial success of Coca Cola. The newest Beach album is nearing completion and sounding very cool indeed.

beach is one of the gems of the beautiful South Pacific. Perfect to de-stress after life catches up with you. Favorites must be the hypnotic "Janey" , the sensual moodiness of "walking wild", the road trip acoustic "coolest light" , a quiet tear for "march angel" and the melancholic optimism of "nothing". Jessie Coutts' voice sends shivers through my speakers and her moody sexiness made a fan out of me. - Julien Calrique - CDB

"I wake up soaked again, I think the rain's still getting in, open view to the Southern Cross" - from "coolest light" - beach


...a warm breeze blows through this debut album by New Zealand band "beach". Beautiful melodies from sexy vocalist Jessie Coutts whose voice soars through 11 finely crafted songs supported by
stellar musicianship. Subtle hints of Morcheeba. "4stars+"
- Brendan Jimminey - Sounds Alive

Brooding, dream-like and sophisticated, Beach, with it's
songwriting team of Jessie Coutts and Mathurin Molgat,
shimmers with musical maturity. Coutts' voice - the CDs
centerpiece - sits on a bed of heavily processed guitars,
keyboards and percussion at times blending to become
another instrument. "Janey" features a hypnotic vocal refrain
which gets under the skin. Unusual but effective song
structures and loping, sometimes brooding grooves
reminiscent of UK band Portishead.
- Kevin Thomas- Mountain Scene

Jessie Coutts and her band beach deliver a stunning first album full of the mysteries of the South Pacific. Her voice is full of understated beauty and haunting melody. A smooth, layered sound. (Moody and captivating live show too...)
- Helena Kernova - Music EX

A inspired complilation, the recording was excellently produced


Fiji Islands people loved Jessies songs
I worked last spring in FIJI, was listening at Jessies absolut beautiful songs at her performance location almost every evening. One day I explored a small 2 kilometer far away island opposite the beach. Jessie was singing and a small group of Islanders there where listening to her music. They told me that every evening they receive her nice music over the sea.
Asking me how this lady is looking like I told them " beautiful like her songs"
So they received my answer and continued listening to her music.

Magical journey wrapped in a warm and suave voice
Beautifully recorded and presented. A unique album full of inspiration and smooth sounds. A very colourful palette, a road less travelled definately worth the journey.
BRAVO... We want some more.

so relaxing and full of imagery
I heard this at a friends' house and fell in love with it. I listen to it in my car to relieve the freeway stress thing and yesterday drove with my windows open hoping to de-stress some of the other drivers with my music. I have never heard of this band but am a fan. I like their web site and love this CD.

low boy

this is damn cruisy and fine
This music is so damn cruisy! We are chilling out waiting for the surf and kicking back to the sweet sounds of Jessie Coutts!! Righteous babe she is...

Pure voice floats on beautiful melodies
This CD is purely beautiful. Jessie Coutts is a understated singer with a relaxed easy delivery and a rich and warm voice. I can't find other CDs by her or her band Beach. I hope they release another album soon. You should buy this and turn all your friends on to it. Great songs and a emotional singer...
