Shapeshifting awesome indie-ish rock as serious and wistful as it is silly and ridiculous
Slogan sketchpad: ----------------- The Bee Sighed -- Voted Best New Band by its members. The Bee Sighed -- Music so good, it actually listens to you. The Bee Sighed -- Spasm phantasms with miles of style.
Band/artist history
It's simple: two long time musical collaborators and multi-instrumentalists decided to get the job done right and do it themselves. The band's mission statement, a 5-song alternative-to-alternative rock mini-epic EP was completed just as the lights went out on 2004. The Bee Sighed is currently taking Portland, OR (and then the world?) by storm. The Bee Sighed is currently: Brendan McCracken -- lead guitar, bass, percussion, keyboards, vocals Dave Shur -- rhythm guitar, drums, percussion, keyboards, vocals Emily Vidal -- bas, vocals
Have you performed in front of an audience?
We've played two "secret" shows as a duo when we first formed in September. Emily Vidal recently joined the group on bass and vocals, and we played our first show at C Bar in SE Portland on July 8th, 2005. Playing live rules.
Your musical influences
To describe all of our influences would either be exhaustive or too limiting, so here's a few: The Beatles, Modest Mouse, The Fiery Furnaces, Pavement, Paul Simon, The Pixies, Bob Dylan, Wilco, The Giraffes and PUSA, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony...and Brendan used to kind of like ABBA for a while
Anything else?
Anything!
