Beck Hansen was born into a bohemian, artistic family. His father, David Campbell, is an arranger, composer and conductor, while his mother – Bibbe Hansen – is a performance artist, musician, and actress. He is part Jewish through his mother, and he also has some Norwegian ancestry. His maternal grandfather, Al Hansen, was an artist and a member of the Fluxus movement. He moved around a lot when he was young, splitting time between his mother in Los Angeles and his fraternal grandparents in Kansas. After ninth grade, he decided to leave school, later attending classes at Los Angeles City College, using fake I.D. to get in. Most of his musical knowledge is self-taught. Before he was discovered, he worked a string of menial jobs in order to support himself.

Beck moved to New York in 1989, and performed for a while on the East Village anti-folk scene. However, he soon returned to Los Angeles, where he performed in coffeeshops. He was noticed by the owner of Bongload Records, Tom Rothrock, with whom he made his breakthrough single “Loser” (1993). Following the success of the song, Beck signed with Geffen Records, and released his first studio album, “Mellow Gold” (1994). The album was a blend of several genres, including alternative rock, anti-folk, and neo-psychedelia, but was critically acclaimed and sold over 1.2 million copies. Beck also continued to release music for smaller, independent labels, such as Flipside. On his second official studio album, “Odeley” (1996), Beck similarly blended genres, this time country, jazz, blues, rap and rock. The album received universal acclaim, and spawned singles such as “Where It’s At”, “Devils Haircut”, and “The New Pollution”. His net worth was rising steadily.

On the whole, Beck has released fifteen albums, three of them independently and twelve through major labels. With every new album, he tried to do something new, never settling on one genre, though he is usually labeled as indie, or alternative rock. His music is perhaps best described as a collage of different styles and genres. The official recognition of his talent and innovative music work has come in the form of five Grammy Awards from 16 nominations. In his decades-long career, Beck has collaborated with many famous musicians, including Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Nate Russ from the band Fun. He also collaborated with his grandfather, Al Hansen, in order to put on an artistic exhibition called “Beck & Al Hansen: Playing With Matches” in 1998.

Regarding his personal life, Beck is married to actress Marissa Ribisi, who is the twin sister of actor Giovanni Ribisi. Both Marissa and Beck are devoted scientologists; together they have two children, a son and a daughter.
