With every beat, B & the Hive's ethereal blend of Alternative Rock & Indie Pop, pulses with heart and soul. Both modern and timeless, this California raised band conjures beloved artists of the past, while continually forging a path uniquely their own. From guitar driven anthems, to moody pop mantras and hook-laden melodies, there is a conscious undercurrent of stirring lyrics which deeply move the listener and leave them wanting more.
For nearly a decade, B & the Hive’s founding members and co-songwriters, Brianna Lee & Josh Barrett have existed purely to make music from the soul. Drawing from early inspiration (The Cure, Radiohead, Fleetwood Mac), their sound relates to the current realm of artists (Sharon Van Etten, Big Thief, Warpaint) and remains ever-evolving. The combined talents and direction of Josh (producer/bass/multi-instrumentalist) and stunning vocals and stage presence of Brianna, armed with a powerful cast of musicians, culminates in a dynamic and exhilarating live show, that captivates audiences wherever they perform.
The intoxicating experience of B & The Hive continually lands them at top venues and festivals on the West Coast (Great American Music Hall, Vina Robles Amphitheater, Mountain Winery, Henry Miller Library, Hotel Cafe, Humphrey's by the Bay, Bottle Rock, Live Oak, & Whalerock Music Festivals) supporting world renowned artists (Alanis Morrisette, Goo Goo Dolls, Ben Harper, Elvis Costello, Chris Isaak, Lucinda Williams, Allen Stone).
