About the Band


“Soul-soothing music…” – Phil Stahl, WXLV radio

Bees In A Bottle is the indie folk/rock band of Christine and Chad McAllister.  Sometimes appearing with a full band, other times as a duo, Bees In A Bottle has a strong element of intimacy to their shows.  Their songs are introspective and crafted around Christine’s crystalline voice, while Chad’s guitar is interwoven as an ethereal echo or a statement of intensity all its own.  The band’s debut album, Quiet Room was released in the summer of 2013.  Their second, Heartsleeve EP, was released in late 2014.  Both records were produced by the band and recorded in Philadelphia, with Grammy award-winning producer/engineer, Glenn Barratt.  The band has humbly and steadily honed its voice, gaining airplay on AAA and internet radio, placing a top ten song on the independent charts for Women Of Substance Radio and ranking #4 on SBS Music reader’s poll for Best New Sound, 2014.

It’s this honesty and genuine feel…this demonstration of pure heart on display that makes this a great band and a force to be reckoned with.”

– (Jeremy Gladstone, SBS Music Review)

“I’ve always been drawn to introspective music.  This band definitely fits the introspective mold, with a dreamy guitar-based sound that reminds me of the great indie band Trespassers William.  I could listen to this sort of thing all day.”
