''"Will you say to me, when I'm gone
Your face is faded but lingers on
Cause light strikes a deal with each coming night"''

Iron and Wine is the stage name of singer-songwriter Sam Beam. Known for quiet, melodic acoustic songs as well as an impressive beard, he has released a multitude of albums over the years.
- A Good Name for a Rock Band: Sam Beam was inspired by a food supplement labeled "beef iron and wine" while filming a movie.
- Badass Beard: Sam sports an impressive one.
- I Am the Band: Iron and Wine is more of a stage name for Sam Beam than an actual band name.
- Not Christian Rock: While many of his songs contain explicit references to Heaven, God and the Devil, Iron and Wine is by no means a Christian artist.
