Q: How did you come up with such an interesting name for yourselves? Is there a story?

A: Hi Will, thanks for the question! how we arrived at Bees In A Bottle: I loved the imagery. It fit perfectly with the contained resonant, alive-ness of the sounds we were creating together. Couple that with being an admittedly painful introvert, and the imagery of the name took on another, equally fitting meaning. As in, sometimes my thoughts get trapped, bottlenecked inside the brain, and the songs begin to resound in that way too. Christine
