Moon Honey

A Moon Honey show is not just a collection of dense, dizzying sonic splendor, but a visceral experience that saturates every sense. A guitar solo spins into a soaring vocal arpeggio only to slam down to earth with a thud. Moon Honey’s music is like a bomb going off inside a Fabergé egg.

A guitar solo spins into a soaring vocal arpeggio only to slam down to earth with a thud. Moon Honey’s music is like a bomb going off inside a Fabergé egg.

Moon Honey has a penchant for epic songcraft, a practice culminating in the critically acclaimed 2013 album Hand-Painted Dream Photographs, which was mixed by Greg Saunier of Deerhoof. The New York Times’ Jon Parales described Hand-Painted as, “Whirlwind virtuosity, extremes of delicacy and impact, melodies that leap all over the place, suite-like structures, cryptic lyrics based on literary conceits.” Bob Boilen of NPR’s All Songs Considered called it, “Cotton candy dipped in peyote.”

Guitarist Andrew Martin and vocalist Jessica Ramsey hail from the mystical swamps of Louisiana. New Orleans’ bohemian streak, in particular, inspire the band, but they transcend the trappings of such an influence. After a number of cross-country tours, Moon Honey has pared down to the core duo, based in Los Angeles. The two are looking forward to their official 2015 SXSW Showcase and KEXP live session on April 1st, but most of all, they are still climbing that scaffold to the moon, seeking a taste of the celestial sweetness their music evokes.
