  About your Area

Honeychurch is a group from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Music journals such as The Big Takeover and No Depressionhave described Honeychurch's music as a mix of indie rock, alt country, and slow core, with strong influences from 1960s and 1970s psychedelic and folk rock [1] [2] [3] [4]. Honeychurch has released two critically acclaimed albums: Calling Me Home (2001) and Makes Me Feel Better (2004).


[edit] Background

The band was originally the solo project of Virginia-born Shilough Hopwood (singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter).

Larissa Hopwood joined in 1999. She plays bass and sings both lead and harmony vocals.

Lead guitarist Tim Kratz joined Honeychurch in 2001, and with his presence, the live band took shape. Kratz's playing combines slide guitar and B-Bender techniques and is often mistaken for pedal steel.

Drummer Greg Millward joined Honeychurch in 2004, replacing Stefan Baker. A native of Doncaster, England (in Yorkshire), Millward started playing drums in the brass bands which are traditional in the Northern England, and also played in Thumper and other groups in England before joining Honeychurch in 2004.

Other Honeychurch contributors and collaborators include engineer and pianist Patrick Robinson, violinist Jay Ansill, harmonica player Vinny Asaro, pedal steel guitarist Jim Cohen, and designer David Weed.

Both Honeychurch albums were released with the help of legendary and beloved independent record store Siren Records in Doylestown, PA.

[edit] Critical responses

A kind of transcendent cross between Red House Painters and Gram Parsons; equal to Low at their best....Absolutely sublime., France

Honeychurch blends the influences of Neil Young, Nick Drake, Mojave 3 and The Byrds to make gorgeous pastoral music ... lush, organic, orchestral, aching, ethereal...

No Depression issue #54, November 2004

resplendent in sonic riches....It's only very occasionally that you hear something by an artist that you have never heard of before, and wonder where they've been all your life. Imagine an enticing hybrid of the best of Luna, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Low, and a host of fantastically obscure 60's orchestral a parallel universe, 'Chancery Lane' would be number one all year around...

[edit] Live

Honeychurch has shared the stage with artists such as The Walkmen, Alejandro Escovedo, Mojave 3, Archer Prewitt, Jens Lekman, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, and the Radar Brothers.
