With surprising instrumentation, innovative songwriting, quirky melodies, and a healthy sense humor, Bee vs. Moth
plays music that defies traditional categories. The band has one foot in the world of jazz and creative improvisation,
and the other firmly planted on a distortion pedal. Is Bee vs. Moth serious or silly? Virtuosic or spazzy?
We’ll find the answer somewhere between doom metal and a brass band.

Sarah Norris (drums, percussion)

Sarah plays drums in Bee vs. Moth, but plays vibes with Benko. You may also see her as a guest with My Education, The Invincible Czars, and others. Sarah has spent time in the DJ booth at KVRX, KUT, and KPFT Pacifica Houston. In addition to writing music for Bee vs. Moth, Sarah has collaborated with Josh Robins to arrange Mussorgsky/Ravel's Pictures at an Exhibition for a combined ensemble of Bee vs. Moth and the Invincible Czars. By day, Sarah works in libraries and archives.

Philip Moody (bass)

Philip's interest in creative music, jazz, and the lower register developed as a younger person playing tenor and bass trombone, hosting a jazz radio show, and performing in a wide variety of settings: rock bands, jazz bands big and small, country bands, and orchestras. Lately, Philip's musical pursuits are focused on Bee vs. Moth, but he occasionally hosts improvisational Super Bowl parties. His trombone playing is a distant memory, and for that you should be grateful. Philip and Sarah write most of Bee vs. Moth's music. By day, he wishes it were night.

James Fidlon (guitar)

James Fidlon plays guitar for Bee vs. Moth, and holds the distinction of being both the newest and the oldest member of the band. James’s performance experience stretches back far too long for him to remember, but he is pretty sure he once played in a band called “Funkus.” More recently James has thrilled audiences and their families at wedding receptions across central Texas with enthusiastic renditions of party classics like “Sweet Caroline” and “Brown-Eyed Girl.” His passion for strange, and often disconcerting musical effects has added new dimensions of sonic bedlam to the Bee vs. Moth sound. By day James is the Director of Operations for Austin Classical Guitar, where he tries not to break anything.
