Sophomore album Calm Down, Everything Is Fine due for release Spring 2013.

The Orphan, The Poet

The idea of a "music scene" is one that is lost on The Orphan, The Poet. Developing their craft in rural southern Ohio, the members of this 4-piece indie rock outfit founded their group on a musical island—not a single band or venue in nearly 100 miles.

American Opera

American Opera is a musical project consisting of John Bee and his friends. Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan and recently transplanted to New York CIty, by way of a short stint in Chicago, American Opera combines influences from Modest Mouse to Manchester Orchestra, Rilo Kiley to Ben Folds. John's trademark voice stops conversations and draws immediate attention. The depth of his vocal delivery couples with his introspective and deeply personal lyrics to make a connection with anyone within earshot.

John spent the better part of eight years touring non-stop as part of Michigan-based independent rock band Your Best Friend. In 2011, the band came to an end, and John rolled out his new project, American Opera, a distinct departure from the aggressive rock sounds of his former band. In slightly more than a year, John has performed over 100 shows as American Opera, both solo and with a full band.

He's been featured in Alternative Press magazine, played with artists like Cursive and William Elliott Whitmore, and has released two EPs already in his short career. The rest of 2012 is packed with shows, and his 2013 is full of hope. John intends on continuing to tour relentlessly, and there are plans for at least two musical releases.

In the Groovebox Studios Sessions linked to the left, the intimate nature of American Opera's performance is on full display.
