45: Lissie on Beekeeping

Fri Mar 23 2018 (44:21)

Two years ago Rock Island, Illinois born-singer Lissie moved out of the orbit of the music industry machine and back to her native Midwest. Empowered by the success of her last record - which she released independently - she decided it was time for a life change and to do things more her own way.

She broke free from an increasingly stultifying Californian existence and bought a massive farm in Northeastern Iowa. The experience ushered in a period of exploration in her music and the result was new record Castles - her fourth album - which she says is the "record that people always wanted [her] to make". On her farm, she's learning how to grows vegetables and build a self-sustaining conservation space and retreat, as well as keeping bees - the subject of today's chat with Jen Long.
