Whether performing as an acoustic duo or a full fledged Honky-Tonk five piece, the Honeycutters are, at the heart, the musical collaboration of singer/songwriter Amanda Anne Platt and lead guitarist/ producer Peter James. While their sound has drawn comparisons to such artists as Graham Parsons and Emmylou Harris or Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Platt and James produce a refreshingly unique blend of Americana music that is comfortingly familiar while being entirely original.
The Honeycutters' music is driven by compelling lyrics and singer/songwriter Amanda Platt's 'perfectly unadorned' and 'recklessly beautiful' voice. Lead guitarist and producer Peter James' seamless harmonies and tasteful instrumentation complement Platt's singing. We can't get enough of their first full length studio release 'Irene', and we're thrilled to host them at the Tree House.
“Platt has obviously grown up listening to the country and Americana music greats, and yet has a sound all her own, using an honest but sweet and twangless delivery.” -- Bold Life
“Old school country in the truest sense, ‘Irene’ is full of real emotion, family history, quick wit and strong liquor.” -- Mountain Xpress
