Chicago Folk Rock Band
Honey Cellar is a folk rock quartet born out of a border town, where fiddle tunes, folk punk, and Midsummer brought them together. They are based in Chicago and have played at venues all around the midwest. Their rich vocal harmony, vibrant instrumentals, and earnest lyrics make each show an intimate yet electrifying experience.
Their debut album, In Our Time, plays like an oasis of gentle melodies and nostalgic lyrics in a tumultuous year. Nine original songs showcase the band’s folk roots built on a backbone of rock rhythm and introspective lyrics. The lead singers’ dynamic vocal harmonies rise to the powerhouse wail of the Civil Wars and soften to the haunting duet of Better Oblivion Community Center. Alongside these voices the Irish-inspired mandolin and violin soar, weaving in and out of center stage like a third voice.
