Aly Spaltro, aka Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, says she adopted the moniker after finding it one morning, written in her lyrics journal – apparently jotted during a nocturnal creative burst.

TURN YOUR RADIO DIAL to 102.9 WBLM every Friday at 8:30 a.m. to hear Aimsel Ponti wax poetic about her top live music picks for the week with the Captain and Celeste.
Most importantly, I've learned that I make my own rules and boundaries and am responsible for my own success and happiness within the music industry, and that it is possible to carve out that space for myself and feel at peace with my career decisions without feeling that I have to conform to any standard.
How did you get signed to the Ba Da Bing label?
I would say that Ba Da Bing and I have been silently courting each other since around the time I toured with Beirut two springs ago. My wants in a label were very simple: A small team of people who care about each other and get along, who are trustworthy and passionate, and have the time, energy and excitement to really take care of my debut release and nurture it the right way during its send-out.
To me, that is exactly describing Ba Da Bing Records. When "Ripely Pine" was finished and it came time to figure out how I wanted it released, I knew I wanted Ba Da Bing without even handing it to anyone else.
