Eat, sleep, breathe: Iron and Wine
The eating habits of Sam Beam, the South Carolina-raised, now Texas-based singer-songwriter better known as Iron and Wine
What time is breakfast?
Depends on the day and if I’m at home or on tour.
Tea or coffee?
Smoking or non-smoking?
No smoking, these days.
Sweet or savoury snacks?
Depends on the time of day, but chocolate is always a nice treat.
What food do you miss when you tour?
Austin BBQ is hard to find anywhere but Austin.
Who’s the best cook you know?
In the band, I’ve heard rumor that Matt Lux (bass) is quite the star in the kitchen.
What’s on your rider?
What if I said green M&Ms and room temp Guinness shipped over from Dublin?
Actually, it’s pretty standard fare – veggies, dip, chips, salsa.
Which country/ city has the best food?
So many choices, I can’t decide.
Do you eat out a lot?
At home, not so much. On the road, everyday.
Do you eat or drink onstage?
Water only onstage.
