Bethany Larson & The Bee’s Knees, one of Twin Cities best kept secrets as declared by Twin Cities Metro, brings a preacher’s daughter from Austin, MN to the forefront of the local music scene. Bethany grew up with three older brothers singing in the church choir. She picked up the guitar at fifteen, and during her college years she trained in classical voice. She began writing songs and soon after hit the stage. In the process of recording her sophomore album she joined forces with the “Bee’s Knees” – comprised of her brother Chris Larson on guitar, keyboards and backing vocals, Sara Horishnyk on drums, and Alicia Kay on bass.
Bethany Larson and the Bee’s Knees have been moving up the scale playing venues that include the Dakota Jazz Club, the Aster Cafe, the Red Stagg, the Midwest Music Festival in Winona and the Paramount Theater in her hometown of Austin, MN.
“…Bethany’s voice has evolved beautifully: as much Ella Fitzgerald and Juliette Greco as Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams. Bethany’s lyrics about love and heartbreak have a worldly sophistication and the band has fleshed out unique and sweet arrangements that both swoon and rock.” –Adam Levy, The Honeydogs
