“spellbinding” – Meet Honey Gentry – Lizzie’s Lowdown

June 13 2019: Record of the Day (Daydream Baby)

“Dramatic, quietly restrained, and with a melancholic undertone that pervades throughout, Honey’s star is truly in the ascendancy.” – Record of the Day

February 6 2019: SlantedPress spotlight interview

In an industry fixated on the finished product, Honey Gentry is an underdog, but like all great underdogs, you’d bet on her to cause an upset, with a storm of ethereal, DIY enchantment providing poetic justice to those desiring artistic integrity. Her first body of work, 2018’s self-released Moonlight EP, pinned her on the map as Britain’s answer to Lana Del Rey, and with a style soaked in reverb, Gentry is capable of producing music of beguiling intrigue.

HEAVEN CALIFORNIA | 27 APRIL 2018

“Q&A : Syncr Music Competition Winner Honey Gentry”

HEAVEN CALIFORNIA – PREMIERE ON BORNMUSICONLINE 

Slow and cinematic, Honey Gentry’s first single since last year is a dreamily dark piece of guitar pop. The vocals sit isolated pleading “Take me to heaven when you go”, whilst soft guitars echo in the background. Tinges of country and shimmering 50’s pop seep through every reverb-laden guitar strum, and the overall effect is deeply hypnotic.” – Bristol Live Magazine (Tracks of the Week)

“The vocals here are sure to melt even the most harden of hearts. Supported with minimal instrumental accompaniment, the strength by far is the siren like voice that will completely wreck you. Their ability to seduce while they paint a nostalgic landscape of California is rare to find. We come across a lot of artists every month, and this one might just be one of our favorites. It stays with you long after it is done.” – Ear To The Ground (Five Best Tuesday Jams)

“Honey Gentry may be based out of London but this tune she crafted  is a quintessential and more than welcome addition to the myth and folklore of the Golden State. Heaven, California is the aptly named first track from her first studio EP Moonlight to be issued on the 29th of June and is a legendary composition of sublime vocals that melt alongside a decadent sunshine infused melody. A symphonic dream by the beach–a real dream pop reality.” Diamond Deposits
