Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are the Honey Dewdrops and have been making music for six years. They play original and American traditional songs focusing on vocal harmonies and tight instrumentation.
Together with writing their own songs and harping on old country and blues tunes, Laura and Kagey began putting together a repertoire that Laura says “fits us.” You could call the Honey Dewdrops’ original material singer-songwriter because they do write and sing songs. You might just want to say that Laura and Kagey write honest songs with affective melodies that leave you feeling happy and sad and coming back for more. With subtle perception and complimenting guitar work, these songs bring to mind journeys, beginnings and ends, Robert Frank photographs, and a close feeling to home.
"If the Sun Will Shine," their debut record, was just released May 2009. Recorded live and mixed in a 1920''s barn, the record is meant to pay homage to their live performances - full of the same energy and emotion the Honey Dewdrops bring to the stage. "If the Sun Will Shine" was mastered by local sound engineer, Abel Okugawa at Monkeyclaus in Nelson VA. The album is a collection of songs that the Honey Dewdrops have written over the past two years and it features material that comes straight from the heart. There are eleven original tunes - some of which are award winners, and a few of the songs got Laura and Kagey plane tickets to St. Paul, Minnesota where they appeared on A Prairie Home Companion’s "People in their Twenties Talent Show" (and won first place) in March 2008. This is a record capturing "something haunting, melancholic and all-together charming" (Jeff Royer, Fly Magazine).
The Honey Dewdrops are headed out on the road this summer traveling west to California and playing at all points in between. They''re looking forward to joining up with Anne and Pete Sibley (winners of A Prairie Home Companion''s 2009 talent show) in their great state of Wyoming for a set or two toward the end of the summer.
