Honey Don’t plays American stringband music from the heart of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. They write and perform original songs as well as unique covers, both new and old. The music ranges from americana to folk, country, old-time, bluegrass and good old rock 'n roll.
The band members include Bill Powers (guitar) and Shelley Gray (bass), and are perhaps better known as one-half of the Paonia, Colorado-based old-time bluegrass band, Sweet Sunny South. They can be found performing as a duo, trio or quartet, both acoustic and electric. On their newest CD, they are joined by Ryan Drickey of the Expedition Quartet, Gabrielle Louise on fiddle and Greg Schochet of Halden Woffard & the Hi-Beams and Swing State on mandolin and guitar.
“Out of the chute this band has a style, a sound and a defined point of view as distinctive and compelling as those of the finest roots outfits extant. Crackling with life and overflowing with soul, its music rare and true, Honey Don’t exalts the human spirit.”
-- Dave McGee, TheBluegrassSpecial.com (Sept 09)
“You’ve developed an immediately recognizable sound--a mixture of bluegrass and old time propelled by some sharply crafted tunes with some real meat on them.”
-- Dave Higgs, Nashville Public Radio
“An amazing performance with great harmony a full sound with plenty of tasty licks and excellent material.”
-- Steve Lutz, promoter, Torrey Music Festival, UT
