Honeysuckle

  • Americana

  • Progressive

Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration.

Swirling synth pop meets traditional folk storytelling. Honeysuckle’s sixth studio release, Shadow Dance, encapsulates feelings of nostalgia, loss and hope. Recorded at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, MA by Benny Grotto, who also plays drums and percussion on the EP, Honeysuckle has built upon their classic sound. Mandolin and acoustic guitar, accompanied by their textbook tight harmonies, are joined on this record by synthesizer, electric bass and percussion to build a lush sound. The songwriting is ever poignant, painting a picture with nostalgia. Shadow Dance, as the name implies, plays with the themes of loss and hope and how the two crisscross through our lives. Before that, Honeysuckle released their fourth full-length album Great Divide. They also have four previous titles: Fire Starter (full length 2019), Catacombs (full length 2017), Honeysuckle (full length 2016) and Arrows (EP 2015).

Comprised of Holly McGarry and Chris Bloniarz, this upstate NY based band can frequently be found performing across the country. Honeysuckle has performed at Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, Mountain Jam, Americanafest, Otis Mountain Get Down, and Audiotree. Awards include Americana Artist of the Year (2019) and Folk Artist of the Year (2018) at the Boston Music Awards, in addition to having been nominated every year since 2016. NPR named Honeysuckle one of the “Top 10 bands of 2016 So Far.”
