HoneyHoney - "Whatcha Gonna Do Now?"
Their high-lonesome hauntingly memorable sound makes you want to stand up and take notice. They have the kind of star quality rarely seen in today's plastic perfection pop stars that are constantly paraded in front of us. They are real, raw, tangible and true.
HoneyHoney is an Americana group based in Los Angeles, California, United States. The band was formed in 2006 by musician Benjamin Jaffe and musician/model/actress Suzanne Santo. The two met at a costume party and signed a record deal a year later. They originally performed under the name Zanzibar Lewis and were under that name when they signed with Ironworks record label.
Their debut album, First Rodeo, was released on November 4, 2008 under the now-defunct Ironworks record label, run by actor Kiefer Sutherland and friend Jude Cole. Sutherland directed and starred in the group's music video for their song "Little Toy Gun". HoneyHoney toured with Lifehouse, another Ironworks band, at the start of their career. The band released their second studio album, Billy Jack, on Oct 24, 2011 under their own honeyhoney Records/Lost Highway label.
Their third album, "3" was produced by Dave Cobb and released June 9, 2015. The website American Songwriter reviewed it writing, "with a singer-songwriter that exudes the magnetic passion and swaggering star power of Santo, this is a group whose time has come."
And so it has, they are making small waves all around the country and people are taking notice. Thank goodness, because theirs is the music that we need right now.
So today, with the stars spinning madly all around, I choose HoneyHoney's "Whatchya Gonna Do Now" as my, make your choices, stand your ground, accept what comes, song for a, belief and hope are two of the same, strength in the standing, love in the looking, Tuesday.
