Indie soul-blues two piece. Daughter of an old r&b drummer plays guitar and sings till her stomach hurts. She taught a guitarist how to play the drums and it was all over. She Keeps Bees'' got soul.
"Jessica Larrabee (vocals, guitar) and Andy LaPlant (drums, recording) are from Brooklyn but might as well be from Detroit or Nashville (or somehow both), and not from the year 2007 but 1974 or 2016 (or somehow both)... inevitable comparisons to similar blues-influenced two piece rockers such as The Black Keys and The White Stripes are somewhat accurate, but there are subtle layers to peel back, revealing influences such as Verve Records legend Nina Simone, the lovelorn blues of Patti Smith and Van Morrison, and modern contemporaries such as Mazzy Star and Cowboy Junkies. Recorded this past summer at Gradwell House Studios in Haddon Heights, NJ, this EP is the follow-up to the 2006 release Minisink Hotel, which was played and recorded entirely by Ms. Larrabee. Get on the bandwagon now before this spot blows up!!! Recommended!" -

"In the fluttering footsteps of Patti Smith, Polly Harvey and Chan Marshall, the eloquence of She Keeps Bees'' psalms emote and ignite in a way that artists armed with only a guitar have things to say and ways to say them. The songs meditate around Jessica Larrabee''s vocals and swayful strum; the power of a minimalist army of songwriting and style" - RECKLESS RECORDS CHICAGO
The Shhhh EP was recorded at Gradwell House Studio in south Jersey. Engineered by Steve Poponi and mastered by Dave Downham in the summer of 2007. https://www.tradebit.com
