“The rising singer-songwriter making elegantly sad pop to break your heart” – NME

An amazing surprise for me today – NME included me in THE NME 100! I am so delighted, elated, just over the moon! 49729321_10156933392945912_1651424258275934208_o49329092_10156933392885912_1644972040576303104_o49344592_10156933392740912_8709521878978396160_o

text reads:

From: London, UK
Sounds like: Music made to stare out to sea from the windy coasts of Britain to
For fans of: Lana Del Rey, Fleetwood Mac, Alexandra Savior
USP: A sigh that feels like it weighs a tonne, but only serves to make her songs more magical.
Why you’re going to love them: Honey Gentry knows how to craft a song for those days when you can barely lift your head off the pillow – lethargic but beautiful and poised in its misery. That all she needs is her emotive voice and barely more than a guitar to make you feel at one with her marks her out as someone very special.
Key track: ‘Bleed, Honey’

welcome to 2019 with Aphrodite

hello and welcome, 2019!

i hope this is a fruitful year. 2018 was a great year in many ways, but it was full of near-misses and longing, for me… hopefully this year is one that manifests some tangible results from all the work i put in… please cross your fingers for me!

i wrote this song in mid-December, the lyrics came to me very easily, which always gives me positive feelings towards a song… i hope you like it.

you can download it (and read the lyrics) here on bandcamp:

happy birthday moonlight

the moonlight EP is six months old today! this year truly has been a gift. if the music soundtracked a moment for you in any way, even if it only touched the heart of one person, i am grateful. thank you for listening & for giving me a chance to share my heart 💗 creativity is such a gift in life (to all of us)… crafting something tangible out of thin air and melodies and emotions is… pretty special. and connecting with others through it, brings even moreso a special dimension. these songs reached places as far as Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Warsaw, Istanbul, even Singapore! 🦋 in many ways it doesn’t feel real. but the connections i have made w people this year through the strange world of the internet, makes it genuinely feel as though there is energy created from the flap of the butterfly wings… 🦋 and hopefully the effect of that energy will continue into 2019 and beyond! wishing everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous new year! 💕💗🌙 

thank you

this was the first year that i started to see people make something in reaction to my music. that was so surreal… here are some of them:
