Album Notes

Come Down In Thunder - Sleeping Bee

With this second collection of music, Sleeping Bee ups their game considerably. While the first recording, Heyday Maker, was an all instrumental affair featuring the multi-instrumental talents of Lindsey Horner, Andy Goessling and Randy Crafton, this album sees the band adding the unique talents of singer and guitarist, Timothy Hill. In addition to being a fine conventional vocalist, Timothy is also adept at several different styles of harmonic or “throat singing” which he uses to brilliant effect on several of the tracks here.

Sleeping Bee’s style has been described as “World Folk Jazz” and the range of material is wide. From the opening “Soul of a Man” by the great bluesman, Blind Wille Johnson, Bob Dylan’s “I Pity the Poor Immigrant”, Julie Miller’s “All My Tears” to John McLaughlin’s “Lotus Feet”, the band does not simply cover other artists’ material, but rather reshapes and reimagines it from the ground up. Originals like Lindsey Horner’s “Mighty Rain” and “Flight of the Humblebee” and Timothy Hill’s “Conguero” show a depth that has been gathered from years of experience.

All four musicians have spent much time as sidemen making other artists sound good. Sleeping Bee is their chance to have their say.
