Vinna Bee
Vinna Bee
Vinna Bee represents the musical / artistic & lyrical visions of“Sian Vinna Bevan”.



Her first EP “Treasures of the Apiarist” was released in the summer of 2013 by fledgling Hampshire, UK, Indie label “Quatre Femmes Records” who described the sound as haunting, Jazzy, folk, electronica, eccentric?

The "odd jerky beats" and “On topic” lyrics were what drew "Quatre Femmes" to work with Vinna Bee.

This EP of cautionary tales was inspired by personal experience gained from living within the landscape and coastline of the Atlantic, Irish and Pacific oceans.



A further track appeared on Quatre Femmes seasonal EP "Time to wrap up" later in 2013.


"Eldorado Omega” Vinna Bee’s second EP released on “Clearwing” in December 2014, offers a more experimental version of her brand of pop folk electronica. One reviewer wrote… Fans of electro, pop, folk, avant-garde music, will love the alternative leanings and eclectic instrumental deliveries throughout.


Her third and new EP "Hypnagogia" (released on "Clearwing" September 2016) goes much deeper into electronica. In support of this Vinna Bee has a new live show and can be seen across the UK and US in support of this release (see calendar) .



"There’s a Quirky element to Vinna Bee’s music that you just can’t put a handle on, eclectic and experimental in a liberating way" - Bethan Elfyn BBC Wales
