Austin’s Bee Caves exists in between the layers of American music, showing a range as impressive and diverse as to blur the lines that divide rock, electronica, psychedelic noise and timeless Americana. The manic, honest urgency in Reed Calhoun’s lyrics is a central force guiding the music. Co-Producer and guitarist Sam Kearney is responsible for making the music expansive yet grounded in a disciplined use of mixed genres, textures, and sounds.
In 2014, the band released a 6-song EP entitled Animals With Religion and The Wild Honey Pie blog called it “a fascinating, captivating listen” and named “Running Home To You” one of the top songs of 2014. KEXP tastemaker John Richards said, “I mean it. I love Bee Caves and I’m not afraid to tell the world. So damn good.” The band is rounded out by Michael Reynolds on synthesizer and Barbara FG on bass and additional keyboards.
