The Friends of the Bedford Public Library present The Sea The Sea live in concert!
The Sea The Sea is an Upstate New York-based indie folk-pop duo-band featuring what Huffington Post calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering over 15 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song “Waiting” sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. Mountain Stage host Larry Groce calls them “ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing.” Their 2016 release, the six-song EP In the Altogether, earned features by Apple Music including “Best of the Week” and “A-List Singer/Songwriter.” Recently, Paste Music / Daytrotter described the band as “defined by their infallible vocal harmonies and their unconventional song arrangements. The Sea The Sea is a pop band only in their melodic infectiousness—otherwise, they are at their best when subverting conventions.”

Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased online from Lynchburg Tickets.
