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. Since putting out that first album the Honeycutters have shared the stage with such Americana favorites as Tony Rice, The Steep Canyon Rangers, The Seldom Scene, and more.
Singer/songwriter Amanda Anne Platt has been hailed as "one of the best songwriters coming out of WNC these days" by WNCW programming director Martin Anderson, and her voice has been described as "perfectly unadorned" and "recklessly beautiful".
They are currently making plans for the release of their sophomore album, "When Bitter Met Sweet." The Honeycutters' unique style of americana music is just as at home in Athens, Ohio as it is in Asheville, North Carolina. The folk sounds of The Honeycutters are perfect for the rustic, Appalachian venue that ARTS/West provides and we do not expect to see another band like The Honeycutters for some time.
