Austin’s Honey Made bring back memories of legends like James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone, and Earth Wind and Fire with their modern take on slamming primal soul and focus on their R&B roots. Having shared the stage with George Clinton & the Parliament Funkadelic, Sierra Leone Refugee Allstars, The Motet, Lee Fields, Roxy Roca and Flow Tribe, the band have already made quite a name for themselves locally, and are currently planning on rapidly expanding their audience beyond the Austin scene.
Check out the latest release "Brand New"
The album features ten tracks of original music. It is a multi-genre album including soul, funk, reggae and jazz elements. The title track “Brand New” is about a guy finding the right girl and how he feels brand new, It is a follow up to the story of a jilted lover titled “Like a Fool” on our first record. It is also a recognition that the band is brand new with a new attitude and sound. Some other tracks include the funky song “Chicken Sweats” that celebrates the crispy goodness of fried chicken but also lets you know a little more is at play here than just fried chicken. There there is the more traditional soul anthem of “Be True” featuring guest artist Tamara Mack. The record ranges from the party sound of “Can You Feel IT” to the funkier “Steppin’ Out” and the funk and jazz sounds of the instrumental “Southern Fried Funk.” It closes with the feel good message of “So Good.” It is a record that that guarantees to get your body movin’ and your feet tappin’ to the beat.
