BEE APPLESEED and NORA KEYES

Together, Nora and Bee have started a record label to put out theirs and other releases called Godyssey Music and are embarking on another European tour performing separate sets and an improvised performance together called Elf Freedom, all of which will be recorded for a live compilation on the label. Audiences are likely to feel elevated, connected, and transformed during this unique cultural experience as the pair bridge the gap between California and the world through layers of cosmic sound.

LISA PAPINEAU

On her fourth solo record, “Oh Dead On Oh Love” Papineau has created a aural canvas of lush but quietly unsettling arrangements: strings, brass, woodwinds, and other traditional instrumentation fuse organically with ambient tones. Vocal harmonies reminiscent of 70s FM radio super groups twine seamlessly through percussive vocalizations, haunting Yma Sumac or Meredith Monk-like swells unravel into plaintive shouts.
