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

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’

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.

This song was such a long time coming, I first wrote it back in September 2016, we worked on it for a year and finally recorded it in February 2018!
All guitars on the track performed by Ruben Elbrond-Palmer.
Recorded at Resident Studios, engineered by Caradog Jones; mastered by Pete Maher.
Lyrics written and performed by Honey Gentry
January has been a long month! I can’t be the only one who feels it. Bookended by full moons, it’s a month of cosmic cleansing and intention setting for the year ahead… with that in mind:
I had a great time today performing my acoustic set for Bark at the Gladstone Arms in Borough. I’ve never played at this venue before and I loved it. So intimate and, for a small venue, packed with respectful audience – what more can a little singer want?! I haven’t performed live since September at Always the Sun Festival, so I was expecting to be a little rusty to say the least! but the set went well.
Ruben and I are heading into the studio next weekend to start work on the Moonlight EP, it’s been such a wonderful process shaping these tracks into what they are becoming, the year-long work has been so worth it! i can’t wait to share the EP finally.
I also opened the year with a new demo, Desire, which you can hear below!
in preparation for the upcoming EP, i have been reflecting a lot on the path i have been walking since 2015, when i decided that i was going to “pursue” music (that is, start telling people I was a musician and actually releasing my own music! i had been uploading covers online since about 2010 but i would never tell anyone and would never dream of sharing an original!). in that time, i worked and released music under my own name, self-releasing two EPs. i had never felt fully right performing under my own name… it felt weird to introduce myself on stage… it always felt like a placeholder. but then in 2016, honey gentry was born.
the first two tracks i shared online were covers: house of the rising sun, and go with the flow. i’ve finally shared them as an EP available for download on bandcamp!
and the rest, as they say, is history!
all my love,
