The Bee's Knees

Soulful, gritty and twangy, with sweet harmonies and a hard to contain lead guitarist, the Bee’s Knees are in a world of their own. Taking leads from classical country, '60s pop and psychodelia and the country rock movements of the '70s and '90s, the Bee’s Knees have fashioned a unique Americana infused pop sound that is quite their own.

Sofie Reed

I am present here as a Fellow Human Being; a creature amongst many on planet Earth. Carl Jung’s Character Sorter classifies me as a "Counselor Idealist"; a Mahatma Gandhi “type”... I grew up in Ludvika, a small town in the province of Dalecarlia, Sweden. In 1987, as Sofie Swedjemark the “maiden wild child” I traveled to the U.S.A. I liked it and found myself an immigrant... I'm "in it" for the cause of good deeds. I do not believe in “Life and Death” I believe that we come and go.. therefor it’s good to REALLY pay attention while “traveling through”.
