Thanks to the Davis Live Music Collective — a group of local music fans committed to promoting high-quality performances in this town — music lovers will hear Jolie Holland and Sea of Bees on Tuesday.

Doors open at 8 p.m. at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis, with the all-ages concert starting at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12, available at Armadillo Music, 205 F St. in Davis, or online at davislivemusic.com.

Holland is an esteemed Shortlist Prize-nominated musician who has shared stages with artists such as The Jayhawks, She & Him and Chris Isaak. Her unique voice — a blend of blues, folk, gospel, jazz and ’70s rock — has inspired countless indie acts, and earned her a dedicated fan base.

Sea of Bees is Julie “Jules” Baenziger, the freak-folk multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and Sacramento native. What began unexpectedly in 2009 has grown considerably from an EP to an album, world tour, and praise on NPR, Spin Magazine and countless music blogs.

With a new album slated for April release and another world tour, Baenziger isn’t slowing down.

“In the last three years I’ve been working every day without too many breaks,” she said in a recent chat. “I’m kinda exhausted after these last two weeks in New York. Its loads of fun, but imagine living two years of your life in six months. It’s worth it when you see the fruit of it.”

Speaking of fruit, it was the inspiration for her upcoming album, “Orangefarben.”

“It’s the nickname of my first love, my first girlfriend,” Baenziger said. “When we met, we went on a walk to the Co-op. I got her an orange and she got me an apple. I was peeling the orange for her, trying to show off, and it bled all over me. She laughed.

“She was learning German at the time. I called her my orangefarben, ‘the color orange’ in German.”

Unlike the more experimental “Songs for the Ravens” (one of my top albums of 2011), “Orangefarben” is more direct.

“It’s clearer, explains more of a story and has more of a dynamic to it,” Baenziger said. “On my first album, you could make it whatever you wanted it to be. Here, you can relate to it directly. It’s specific. I wanted to write the sweetest thing for somebody I love. I wanted it to come to life.

“I’ll sacrifice anything for love,” she said. “I’ll work my ass off to show the person I love that I could touch a star, maybe put it in a jar and bring it back to them.”

Baenziger likes to create the majority of her songs on her own.

“I record all by myself with acoustic, electric and pianos. My friend John Baccigaluppi (owner of The Hanger studio and publisher of Tape-op magazine) collaborates with me. I have my friends play drums, steel strings. On tour, we’re hiring my friends from different areas.”

Baenziger never envisioned her life would go down this path, and now she’s sharing a stage with Holland.

“She’s a really amazing artist; I’m honored,” Baenziger said. “The way she carries herself, she’s classic — she’s humble. Everyone’s on the same level, we’re just doing our own thing.”

The Davis Live Music Collective is doing its thing to make live music happen in our town. Organizer Kyle Monhollen said, “Our only goal starting out was putting on one event, so we’re doing great!

“We started inviting our friends to participate, almost none of whom have industry experience beyond being dedicated amateurs and people wanting to make something cool happen at home.

“The bigger goal,” he explained, “is to help build the creative community that exists here in town. We each discovered among our peers a citywide population of music lovers. But we didn’t meet them at concerts; we met them in baby groups, at drop-off and pickup from school, or at soccer practice and Little League.”

Because it’s hard for parents to find time to drive to the Bay Area, the Davis Live Music Collective wants to bring shows here.

“With artists like Bon Iver, Wilco and Florence & the Machine coming to the big venues on campus, it seems reasonable to think we can help fill the middle ground,” Monhollen said.
