sea of bees

When Jules and Amber were on tour with Jason Lytle they (and Jason) did a daytrotter session before their gig in SF at the Swedish American Music Hall.

It came out great, here’s what Sean from Daytrotter had to say about it:

“…. These are people who enhance life not make it a bear. They reinforce the simple life, for this Sacramento, California, songwriter, who’s obviously a hopeless romantic, as she’s likely to remain always.

Her songs are special in the ways that they get us to those places that feel like they’re untouchable. The people in them are fighting the good fight, trying to get through to the ones that they love that it’s all going to be alright, that they’re going to be able to get past all of those monsters that they have to deal with in their dreams, that they’re going to be alright if they’re just able to give themselves over. They will be caught. There’s nothing to worry about. It’s not a trap. There’s not a lot being asked here – by anyone.

Bee’s voice is one that we trust as a narrator. It grabs us and it guides us to these wind-whipped souls who have seemingly washed up into the right arms at last. They’ve never asked for much and they’re asking for the same here, as Bee sings, “Kiss me once or twice/Maybe I could die happy as a bird.”
