If you'd like to organize something along the way, please get in touch!
Here's a little info about us:
Bee Appleseed is a 21st Century freedom seeker from Portland, Oregon, living in Los Angeles. He's a singer, multi-instrumentalist, writer, poet, actor, and seasoned vagabond with a treasure trove of home recordings predating his July 2018 debut LP, Backpacker Blues, which he wrote during a three year period of traveling and performing concerts across nearly fifty countries in Europe and South America. The music he makes can be described as cosmic rock and roll with roots in American folk music and his concerts are like psychedelic experiences, taking audiences to great heights and depths, usually improvised making no concert ever the same, though rarely do the shows not end with everybody singing along, clapping, and dancing! Bee is a lighthearted entertainer with a golden love for the road and all those open to sharing the journey.
Nora Keyes is an experimental vocalist, songwriter, painter, and long-standing contributor to the Los Angeles underground music scene. She has developed a unique hypnotic vocal style that is soulful, ethereal, and unfixed in this dimension. Through her solo work and bands Rococo Jet, The Centimeters, and Fancy Space People (collaborating with Don Bolles of The Germs, 45 Grave, Ariel Pink, etc), she has earned a local cult status. Her debut album, Mysterium Tremens (out September 21st) is a sonic journery into the borderlands of perceived reality. Hitting on themes where, synchronicities, de ja vu, mutual dreams, a sense of connection with lost loved ones & visions intertwine. Her projects have shared stages with The Smashing Pumpkins, Love & Rockets, Blixa Bargeld (Einstürzende Neubauten), Ariel Pink, Suicide, David J (Bauhaus), Julia Holter, Quintron, Carla Bozlvitch, Geneva Jacuzzi, & The Sweet.
Together, Nora and Bee have started a record label to put out theirs and other releases called Godyssey Music and are embarking on a European tour performing separate sets and an improvised performance together, all of which will be recorded for a live compilation on the label. Audiences are likely to feel elevated, connected, and transformed during this unique cultural experience as the pair bridge the gap between California and the world through layers of cosmic sound.

Nora Keyes & The Rococo Jet craft haunted lullabies that free the mind from its flesh and launch it on an intergalactic journey. – Buzz Bands LA
The unblinking bulging eyes of the furie that is Nora Keyes. She thrusted her arms forward as if to rip the heart from an invisible demon, then tossed her head back and howled across three octaves - she is, effectively, a one woman rock opera finding drama and glamour in every measure. – L.A. Weekly
The vocal work is clearly the focus, and there are elements of haunting Irish vocal group Clannad in there, the women combining elegantly and beautifully to create something majestic. – Music Connection
Nora Keyes has been a fixture in the LA underground music scene since the mid-90s. She's also hosted a popular weekly local club with erstwhile Germs drummer Don Bolles called Club Ding-a-Ling (now Ye Olde Hushe Clubbe). But what many of Keyes’ cult followers don't realize is that she's a classically trained painter, and her art is just as awe-inspiring, transgressive, and culturally significant as her music. – Vice Magazine
Music created by Keyes can be just as dense and elegant, haunting and lingering. Tracks like Rococo Jet’s “Dream Party” offer a fascinating backdrop to her visual work, even if the pairing was never intended. All amount to a moniker Keyes gives herself on her website: “sonic visualist.” – High Fructose
Thanks for taking the time to read this post!
All the best,
