In a world that is becoming increasingly digitalized and impersonal, the Honeycutters are building a reputation based on live performance and songs that tend to stick with you. Their first full length studio release “Irene” landed them in Iaan Hughes’ No Depression Podcast top twenty of 2009, Fret Knot Radio Hour’s Nine you need to know from ’09, and number 32 in WNCW’s listener voted top 100.
Singer/songwriter Amanda Anne Platt has been hailed as “one of the best songwriters coming out of WNC these days” by WNCW programming director Martin Anderson, and her voice has been described as “perfectly unadorned” and “recklessly beautiful”. Lead guitarist and Producer Peter James compliments Platt’s vocals with seamless harmonies and tasteful instrumentation.
Effortlessly rounding out the Honeycutters’ sound are Spencer Taylor on mandolin, Ian Harrod on bass, and Richard Foulk on the drums… creating an original brand of Americana that has proved equally appealing to both the musician and the music lover, the country and the city, and the old and the young.
“Old school country in the truest sense, ‘Irene’ is free of twang and ten-gallon hats but full of real emotion, family history, quick wit and strong liquor.” –Ali Marshall, Arts and Entertainment, Mt Xpress
