The Honey Dewdrops
Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish are celebrating a decade of touring full time as The Honey Dewdrops, having played stages and festivals far and wide in North America and Europe. With tight harmonies and an musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitars, the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters: the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.
"Anyone Can See," the 6th album from The Honey Dewdrops, is a testament to the decade of touring and performing that Laura and Kagey have undergone since their humble beginnings in a small-town Virginia coffeeshop. This album sees the duo returning to its origins in putting together a sonic space of their live performances with two voices and two instruments, similar to 2009s "If the Sun Will Shine" and 2010s "These Old Roots." At the helm as co-producer, engineer and mixer is Nicholas Sjostrom (who also worked on 2015s "Tangled Country"), capturing in detail, the lush vocals and instrumental play that has come to define The Honey Dewdrops sound. At its core, "Anyone Can See" is a snapshot of living in a time and place that is patterned with disconnection, but also reveals humanity, vulnerability, and the existence of grace.
