Honey Cellar is a folk rock band based in Chicago. Their rich vocal harmonies, vibrant instrumentals, and earnest lyrics make each show an intimate yet electrifying experience. They have played at venues like Cubby Bear, Martyrs, and Montrose Saloon in Chicago and have toured all around the Chicago area and Midwest.
Their debut album, In Our Time, was released in August 2020. 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.
