The Honeycutters are an original country roots band from Asheville, North Carolina. Since 2007, when the group formed, they have been playing music that is consistently as catchy as it is heartfelt. In 2011, 2012, and 2013 they were voted WNC’s favorite Americana band in the Mountain Xpress reader’s poll. Organically grown around the songs of lead singer Amanda Anne Platt, the band has gained an audience that has stretched far beyond their mountain home to include all corners of the United States.
Their most recent release, When Bitter Met Sweet (2012), hit #23 on the Americana Chart, and landed at #94 for the year. It was also one of the top ten best selling albums at MerleFest that same year. The record came in at #4 in WNCW’s listener voted top 100, and #2 in the regional favorites (right behind The Avett Brothers).
The Honeycutters’ first full length studio release Irene (May ’09) was recorded at Asheville’s own CollapseAble Studio, and mixed by Grammy Award winning sound engineer David Fergason (Nashville TN) . The album has garnered radio support across the USA as well as overseas, and landed them in Iaan Hughes’ (No Depression Podcast) top twenty of 2009, as well as in Fret Knot Radio Hour’s “Nine to Know from ’09,” and as number 32 in WNCW’s listener voted top 100.
