“At 18, Rachel Honza already has a few years of songwriting under her belt. The Nederland singer — currently taking a year between high school and college to pursue her pop country dreams — wrote her first song at 12. “I think you can guess what it was about,” she said with a laugh, followed by a small sigh. “The boy in my class who liked all the other girls.” She’s still writing about boys occasionally, but that’s kind of par for the course with the genre she’s narrowed in on. Drawing inspiration from acts like the Civil Wars, Lady Antebellum and Hunter Hayes, Honza has released one self-titled EP of four songs covering topics in Honza’s wheelhouse: faith, fellas and country music. I always describe it as kind of a mix of positive country and pop,” she said. “For me, I try to keep everything friendly.” Honza’s songs are easily digestible pop ditties with friendly lyrics, ample country twang and her sweet, smoky vocals.”
