    Singer Julie Baenziger, aka Julie Ann Bee, whose debut album reveals a similar mix of emotional openness and affinity for the natural world as Laura Veirs, with something of Veirs's inquistive approach to musical textures, too.

    She does more than enough to establish herself as a contender. [Mar 2011, p.112]

    Baenziger takes nothing for granted when it comes to arrangements. where the song demands it, electronic textures are favoured--instincts which bear rich fruit on Willis and Skinnybone. [Apr 2011, p.95]

    Nom de musique of Julie Ann Baenziger, her Sea of Bees diffuses California pop by turns dreamy and atmospheric – folky – and perhaps even a bit precious.

    It's a lovely sound, and a heartfelt one, but not always as affecting as it might be.

    Overall, the compelling outweighs the tedious.
  7. 40
    In the sense of everything common and respectively boring, the majority of Songs for the Ravens doesn't pull off anything new and exciting.
