Primary Instrument: Band/ensemble/orchestra
From New Orleans comes a unique blend of acoustic guitar, cello, percussion and killer harmonies that make up this talented female ensemble.
The Honeypots blend the strong vocals, lyrical sensibilities, and thoughtful musicality of Lynn Drury, Margie Perez, and Monica McIntyre. These three songwriters, talented musicians in their own right, have come together; creating unique spins on their original compositions as well as beloved covers. These songbirds love to sing and it shows in their sweet harmonies.
Their debut CD, Something Sweet on Threadhead Records has received great reviews from Offbeat and Where Y'at Magazines!
Singer/songwriter Lynn Drury is an undeniable talent and a passionate performer. Hailing from Mississippi, Drury combines twang from her country upbringing with the funkiness of her adopted home of New Orleans. Her compositions are as rich and full of visual imagery as life itself and seemingly transport all who listen to another time and place. This is what one reviewer had to say: “..handling an acoustic guitar as passionately and deftly as she rides her horses, this funky, soulful Americana gem from New Orleans is perfect road music for the soul.” Cincinnati City Beat
Margie Perez is a versatile, vivacious singer who in 2010 released Singing For My Supper on Threadhead Records and debuted in the Blues Tent at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Offbeat magazine called her “one of the hardest working musicians in New Orleans“. She leads her own funky band and sings with many projects including Threadhead Records artists Ensemble Fatien, Afro-Cuban Jazz group, Moyuba, and Psychedelic Rock band, the Ibervillians.
Monica McIntyre is a passionate performer who wows audiences with her deep voice and unorthodox slapping, plucking and strumming cello technique. Blending the genres of jazz, blues, soul, reggae, and middle-eastern music, she creates her own musical landscape. Monica released her debut album Blusolaz in October 2003 and in August 2005 she released Bars of Gold, her first single.
