HoneyHoney is the duo of Suzanne Santo and Ben Jaffe, and when asked to describe their music, they responded with "freeky deeky" and "energetic and eclectic while still focusing on lyrics." Raised on jazz, bluegrass, and the sensational sounds of Etta James, Nina Simone, Randy Newman, and Paul Simon, these two create a sound that manages to hodge-podge the pop, indie and hillbilly-rock genres. Suzanne's voice is spectacularally rich with a slight husky southern twang, and the collaboration between her and the array of stringed instruments Ben plays is simply magical. HoneyHoney released their first album First Rodeo in October of 2008 and are set to play at SXSW this year, and they say that if you are to buy/illegally download an album this year, let it be theirs, so here's a track or two to get you started. Make sure to check out their myspace for tour dates, cause it looks like they'll be hitting every city but Minneapolis from now thru May.
