The Beekeepers are an all-woman band, with all the characteristics of folk music, with a classical twist.
A rather self-sufficient band; each band members writes, arranges and performs their own material. They incorporate 13 instruments to create their unique sound.
The Beekeepers are winners of the May 2017 Akademia Music Awards for Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter EP, and band member/songwriter Sylvie Abate has been heard on more than 70 radio stations in the United States of America.
Their raw and innocent vocals in their single Indecision reminds me of Joanna Newsom’s tunes. The Beekeepers’ song is easy to sing along to as the attainable vocal range accommodates for every fan.
With Indecision’s almost lullaby tune, the accompanying classical-sounding guitar is soothing and makes this folk song an easy-listen. But what it lacks in complexity, it gains 10-fold in integrity as it is a remarkable tribute to the Indie-Folk genre.
If you enjoy the simplicity of the folk genre, and the youthful, string-heavy sounds of Joanna Newsom and the likes, then you will love this feminine trio.
