    NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Oakland, California-based

 Ayres (guitar, vocals); Paul Bertolino (drums, vocals); and Mike Farrell
 (bass, vocals).
     Singer/songwriter Moysov grew up in Russia influenced by a wide range
 of music and literature. Moving to America in the mid-1990s, she met
 guitarist Tom Ayres, who was immediately drawn to her strong melodies,
 poetic lyrics and striking songwriting. Finding sympathetic musicians and
 dubbing themselves Persephone's Bees (after the classical Greek Queen of
 the Underworld and her natural minions), the group released its first
 self-produced album, City Of Love, a nominee for Best Debut Album at the
 2002 California Music Awards. The word-of-mouth buzz generated by
 Persephone's Bees' live shows earned the group the 2001 San Francisco
 Weekly Award for Best Pop Band. In 2006 they released the critically
 acclaimed Notes From The Underworld on Columbia Records. Persephone's Bees
 has appeared on bills with Cake, BRMC, Jonathan Richman, IMA Robot and many
 others. Their hit songs "Nice Day" and "City of Love" have been licensed

 Martin and Osa, as well as TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy and Men In
