The Honeycutters

d d
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. 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. Platt's voice has been described as “perfectly unadorned” and “recklessly beautiful." Despite her love for classic country, she cites Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty as major influences and her songwriting carries a wit and an edge that plants her firmly in her generation. Since the release of their first studio album in 2009, The Honeycutters have shared the stage with such Americana greats as Guy Clark, Tony Rice, The Seldom Scene, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Donna The Buffalo, Jill Andrews, and The Steep Canyon Rangers. "I can see a day when her name is mentioned alongside Lucinda Williams, Mary Gauthier and Gillian Welch," says The Real Southern of Platt's songs. "She’s just that good.”
