Bea Troxel started writing songs in the tenth grade about bad haircuts. Only in the past year did she start put music in the forefront, following a year of working a desk job with kind people but emotionally taxing work. She has a lot of respect for those working in social services.
In High School she played in a band called Bea, Rita, and Maeve (named "Best High School Band of 2013" by the Nashville Scene). The trio won Studio 360's High School Battle of the Bands contest, and Thao Nguyen and Andrew W.K. covered Bea's song, "The River," as performed by Bea, Rita, and Maeve. Nguyen wrote of their music saying there was a "subtlety and refinement in the musicianship."
Troxel played all through her time at Sewanee in southern TN, but she did not begin to seek out shows until she moved to Pennsylvania where she found herself in the midst of the Northeast DIY music scene. She opened for musicians such as Glenn Jones, Laura Baird, and Sons of an Illustrious Father, and organized her first tour through the Northeast in 2017. She recently moved back to Nashville and released her debut record, The Way That It Feels, came out in September 2017. Since the album's release she has toured throughout the NE, opened for Haley Heynderickx and Ben Sollee, and performed as an official showcase artist at SXSW 2018.
