Maureen Cavanaugh: According to their My Space page, the two members of the band The Bird and the Bee, "met a few years ago. Discovered a common love of jazz standards. Nerded out for a couple of hours playing every song they knew and then wrote and recorded a record together." If only everything were so easy.
But that's one of the delights of the music created by Inara George and Greg Kurstin. Despite a multi-layered production and clever lyrics, these songs sound effortless. The Bird and the Bee have just released their second CD called " Ray Guns are not Just the Future."
- Inara George is one half of the musical duo The Bird and the Bee.
Greg Kurstin is the other half and he's also a music producer. The Bird and the Bee have a new album. It's called Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future.
