Honey Locust, Wednesday at Woodruff's

I think the bobcat plays the snare drum.

Last week I received an email from Honey Locust, a folk band from Nashville who are touring to promote their brand new EP, Fear is a Feeling. The email came with a copy of the EP and an invitation to check out their concert in Ypsi on Wednesday. Since I downloaded the album, I have been listening to it on repeat almost constantly. I really enjoy Honey Locust's sound: layered melodies of viola, mandolin, cello and accordion backing vocal harmonies. But don't take my word for it, Honey Locust gave me permission to post two tracks off their EP for streaming. So take a listen to the title track off Fear is a Feeling and Walkin' Shoes.

Isn't that nice? Honey Locust's rich, sweet melodies make me think of a warm spring evening--the smell of crab apple blossoms carried on a gentle breeze. The mind is prone to wondering off to such images this time of year and Fear is a Feeling facilitates such daydreams.

But let's snap back to reality for just one minute more. Honey Locust seems like a pretty sweet band, and you should come see them at Woodruff's on Wednesday. They will be playing with Appleseed Collective who are celebrating the release of their Kickstarter funded album Baby To Beast. It promises to be a great show. Hopefully I'll see you there.

  1. Kinda wish they were Michiganders and could be a part of Earthwork Music. Would love to see a Honey Locust/Daisy May/Seth Bernard/Breathe Owl Breathe/etc. concert on the regs.

  2. Yeah. I'm a little sad they are not from Michigan. But it's nice to have them visiting.

  3. Is that a friggin bobcat?
