Bev Stanton was born in the Bahamas and raised near Walt Disney World. She attended New College of Florida (pre-hostile takeover), taught herself HTML, and embarked on a series of day jobs in online advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights, drug policy reform, and environmental conservation. Stanton's success at using the internet to publicize her musical endeavors prompted Keyboard Magazine to feature her in a cover story on independent music promotion. 

The Washington Post has described Stanton as a "remix master," and the Washington Blade declared her editors' choice for music in its "Best of Gay DC" issue. Her electronica project, Arthur Loves Plastic, has won over a dozen Washington Area Music Awards, and ALP tracks have appeared in film and TV programs such as Access Hollywood, America's Most Wanted, MTV's Cribs, Playboy's Sexy Girls Next Door, American Idol, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. In 2007, ALP tracks "Feel the Love" and "Boogie Bonnie Bell" were featured in the Geico Caveman marketing campaign's virtual Caveman's Crib.

Stanton is one of 24 female electronic artists and deejays profiled in Pink Noises: Women in Electronic Music and Sound (Tara Rodgers; Duke University Press, 2010). Arthur Loves Plastic also had eleven tracks featured in the Solocat Productions Los Angeles premiere of The Blue Room by David Hare. Ever embracing new technologies, Stanton's release, Touch, is a 30-minute download EP created with iPhone applications. She has also made loops of her music available as themes for the Mikrosonic SPC sketchpad app for Android.
