I am going to start using Bee Sahatji as the name for this project, as it helps me put the distance I am looking for between my full name as I use it in the world and this somewhat vulnerable music. Yet, it still names me as a person in a way. B, or Bee, a nickname my sisters and I have used a lot over the years (our names all start with the letter B). Also, Sahatji in Armenian means watchmaker, and I like the idea of a bee who makes watches.
ALSO: I’m playing a house show with my buddies from Dogtooth and Nail along with some excellent touring folks artists at a house next Saturday night. Please join if you are near Portland!
