The extraordinarily talented Sacramento native Julie Ann Baenziger, better known as Sea of Bees, will be bringing her beautifully idiosyncratic and effortlessly moving vein of off-kilter folk to the UK once again, on the heels of the release of her next single "Gone", from her critically lauded sophomore album "Orangefarben", released earlier this year on Heavenly Recordings.
As is coming to be typical of Sea of Bees, "Gone" is a gorgeous slice of offbeat, emotive guitar pop, as instantly infectious as it is deeply affecting. Stunning, concise, uplifting but with a roiling undertow, a song all the more potent when you see Sea of Bees live onstage. Make sure not to miss her biggest UK headline tour yet, with dates that start on November 6th in Leeds, ending at the breathtaking Union Chapel in London on the 19th.
The acclaimed performer had just cancelled touring due to a battle with cancer.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
