She recorded at sessions in Arizona, Berlin, and New York during 2015-2016, and concurrently, the name of Beehan’s theater performance project and album was developed, “Alazon In The Quiet Room.” The album, “Alazon In The Quiet Room” was co-produced in New York City by Oscar & Grammy-winning producer/engineer, Robert L Smith of Defy Recordings, and released on BNS Sessions/Cargo Records UK.
