An interview with Julie Ann Baenziger of Sea of Bees

As new single Gnomes is released I finally publish my interview with the most wondrous Sea of Bees. Julie Ann Baenziger came out of a small suburb of Sacramento to sign with Heavenly last year, and now we can't get enough of her heartfelt tunes.

Sea of Bees released her new single Gnomes on Heavenly Recordings yesterday. It's yet another heart rending slice of Julie Ann Baenziger, treatment so it seems high time that I finally publish the interview I did with her earlier this year, unhealthy just prior to a gig at Bush Hall in Shepherd's Bush.
