The Davis Live Music Collective is proud to present one of the nation's most important young songwriters Jolie Holland along with supporting artist Sea of Bees. This is the music collective’s inaugural event and will be held at the in Davis, Tuesday, February 21st.
Jolie Holland is an esteemed Shortlist Prize nominated musician who counts Tom Waits and ANTI- label mate Sage Francis among her most outspoken fans. She has shared some of the nation’s biggest stages with artists like The Jayhawks, Mavis Staples, She & Him, Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), David Gray and Chris Isaak. Holland is a unique and important voice in music who blends blues, folk, gospel, jazz and seventies-era rock into truly beautiful and unique songs unmistakably her own.
Recently gaining national praise on NPR’s All Songs Considered as a Top 10 pick, Sea of Bees has been releasing albums on Davis, California’s locally owned Crossbill Records since 2009. The musical project of accomplished multi-instrumentalist and self-described freak-folk singer/songwriter Julie Baenziger, Sea of Bees mixes woozy vocals with guitar rooted in folk and rock, delivering songs as mysterious and eclectic as they are wonderful.
The Davis Live Music Collective is a local volunteer group committed to curate, organize, and promote high quality live music for audiences in Davis, CA. The collective formed last September from the town’s vibrant house concert scene, drawn together by a host looking for anyone desiring “really good live music” in Davis. Since then members, a loosely woven group of inspired local music fans, have met at coffee shops, pubs and around kitchen tables to organize this remarkable event.
The concert is open to all ages and will take place Tuesday, February 21st at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall at 415 Second Street, with doors opening at 8pm, music beginning at 9pm. Tickets are available for $12 at Armadillo Music, 205 F Street in Davis, or online at www.davislivemusic.com.
