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. The Honeycutters’ sound has been called, "Old school country in the truest sense... free of twang and ten-gallon hats but full of real emotion, family history, quick wit and strong liquor."

The Honeycutters are excited to introduce their second full length studio release, When Bitter Met Sweet.

Like their first release, Irene, When Bitter Met Sweet features singer/songwriter Amanda Anne Platt, who has been hailed as "one of the best songwriters coming out of WNC these days."

Peter James accompanies her on lead and rhythm guitar as well as harmony vocals. They are backed up by Tal Taylor’s signature mandolin playing, Ian Harrod on bass, and Jon Ashley on drums 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.

Mike Strasser

Mike is a friend and fellow singer/songwriter and one of the treasures of the greater Pittsburgh area. You will not be disappointed.

I've got to say, your music is some of the most beautiful I have ever heard, out of everything I've ever heard.

The lyrics are honestly sweet and humorous and the songwriting is right up there with the best. It's a perfect blend of back porch ballads, cowboy harmonies, and traditional folk, deserving to be heard by all.

I've been a believer in writing shamelessly from the heart, and your style is a validating inspiration to keep believing that truthful music will always be the best music.
