This is a cool band that I did an impromptu photoshoot of with my favorite camera ;) The photo I took below was used in the Nelsonville Music Festival Advertisment. This is exiting because the Swell Season, one of my all time favorite bands (see the movie "once"), was also on the lineup/adverstisment....which means if they looked at it then maybe they saw my picture! Awesome haha!
The Honeycutters: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. 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. Spencer Taylor on mandolin, Ian Harrod on bass, and Richard Faulk on the drums effortlessly round out the Honeycutters sound, 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.
