B'ee is a leading figure in psychedelic folk, who has recorded under the pseudonyms IN GOWAN RING and BIRCH BOOK since the mid-90s. The Serpent and the Dove is his 8th album. It is also In Gowan Ring's 5th album after a 13-year hiatus.

A modern-day troubadour, B'ee makes his own instruments, travels the world and brings back a myriad of musical influences. 60s psychedelic folk and early music remain his main sources of inspiration, though.

"The Serpent and the Dove recounts an alchemical journey through a luminous garden around the Living Tree; there is a serpent… and a dove. A candle flame flickers in the night, illuminating the face of a wandering sage sitting by a stream. He sings a story about a cosmic dancer which he’d heard whispered through the reeds: her rainbow eyes, her bowl of tea, and a field of dreams out of which grew the universe and all that we can see... There are willows; there are masks of leaves; there are thousands of bees." -B’ee

Thirteen years after his previous album, In Gowan Ring continues to enchant and take us back to the essence of what we are.
