This week have I got a band for you!!! This band has it all…
Their songwriting is deep and dark, their harmonies are incredibly tight, and both members are very comfortable with whatever instrument they happen to be playing… guitar, banjo, fiddle… Quite simply, they can do it all.
Ben Jaffe and Suzanne Santo make up the band I am referring to, HoneyHoney. Ben holds down the rhythm, lead, and bass guitar… often times playing the bass from his guitar through some pedal wizardry, and Suzanne plays the guitar, fiddle, and banjo while singing… and let me tell you about her voice… wow!!!
Her voice is raspy (the good kind), wide-ranging, and incredibly expressive. I have seen her two times performing here in Montana and each time her voice is crystal clear and pretty much mind-blowing.
HoneyHoney has three albums to date, and Suzanne Santo just released a solo album, and I can honestly say your record collection would have a huge smile on its face if you added those four albums to it. They aren’t 100% acoustic, but they are so good this is one of the cases where I throw the rules out the window.
