Unable to resist the siren song of music and the fun of working together, siblings James Combs and April Combs (both formerly of the band Arson Garden) have returned to the stage as HONNEYCOMBS.
Arson Garden, as you might remember, was considered one of the best and brightest midwestern alt-art-rock bands of the 90's - championed by British DJ John Peel (who invited them to do a Peel Session for his BBC1 radio show). The band went on to play the Lollapalooza festival, had their videos aired on MTV's 120 Minutes, and were called by the Chicago Reader "perhaps the only art-rock band in America that matters."
James' solo material has been featured in high profile TV shows such as True Blood, Six Feet Under, Entourage, Men in Trees, Gossip Girl and many others.
This time around James and April are sharing both the vocal mic and the songwriting. Joining them on the project is April's dear friend Laurie Burnham, who just happens to be a great harmony singer. And so, voila - the distinctive sound of HONNEYCOMBS: evocative songwriting, harmony singing, and a powerful live show all rolled into one. Produced by John Would (Fiona Apple, Lucinda Williams) and James Combs, the HONNEYCOMBS debut collection is a deep, rich, wild ride - keeping the focus on harmony every step of the way.
