Riddy Arman with The Local Honeys at the 'Dad Lounge
Riddy Arman is a La Honda Records recording artist. Fans have long anticipated her debut release since her viral performance video, shot by Western AF in a Montana Rail Link boxcar, where the world was introduced to her distinct, sultry lope.
Against the bucolic and industrial backdrop of the video, Arman is clearly in her element, clad with ranch worn clothing. It is obvious she lives a lifestyle many romanticize, but few truly understand. The chapters of her life so far make for a story much richer than a common western archetype. Unafraid to take new paths, Arman has traveled across the country from the farmlands of the Midwest to the bustling streets of New York City, and now Montana writing songs, working as a ranch hand, and practicing an Agrarian lifestyle.
Arman herself has chosen to take a different path, embracing isolation and interpreting her life through the rural landscape that adorns her lyrics. With fierce honesty and a voice that immediately commands attention, on her debut record, Riddy Arman has proven herself as much more than just a cowboy, singing her lonely songs.
THE LOCAL HONEYS
The Local Honeys are from the oldest mountains in the world. They fish because its good eating, and they play old-time music because its just good music. They are a Kentucky duo. Montana and Linda Jean.
With voices that called horses home and rained pretty in hollers, their roots in American traditional music are natural. The influences of poets and ballads native to human spirit deep in the rhymes and themes of their songs, the Local Honeys write music for people who need it. Bullshit aside, they are here to talk about suffering.
They will help you get through it. Its what theyve always done. Their 2017 album, Little Girls Acting Like Men, propelled them on tours through the United States and Europe with Colter Wall. They found themselves focal points of traditional music festivals.
Since then their specific sound of Appalachian music has grown, along with a fan base of music enthusiasts and proactive culture. A tour with Tyler Childers in early 2020 was followed up with a fun, yet controversial album The Gospel. Their increasingly popular authenticity quickly catapulted them to headline artists.
As buzz builds for the Local Honeys, despite a deadened 2020 tour schedule that included shows at the biggest folk festivals around, they signed with songwriter haven, La Honda Records, home to country & Western heavy hitters Vincent Neil Emerson and Colter Wall. A recent summer show with the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts highlighted growth and new songs from the two women.
If theres any doubt, there wont be for long. When they sing their songs, play their banjo, their fiddle, those guitars and boxes, the rhythms in their toes, you will know The Local Honeys are from Kentucky. Their names are Montana and Linda Jean, and theyre here to talk about suffering. They are here to get you through this.
