Additional Info

The Local Honeys (Linda Jean Stokley and Montana Hobbs) come from a long line of storytellers and a lineage of strong Kentucky women that aren’t afraid to tell it like it is. With their self-titled La Honda Records (Colter Wall, Riddy Arman, Vincent Neil Emerson) debut, the duo have mastered the art of telling a good story, while pushing the envelope within the traditions they hold dear. Carefully crafted vignettes of rural Kentucky soar above layers of deep grooves and rich tones, creating the most nuanced, moody, deep-holler sound the duo have captured to date. Masterfully curated by Grammy nominated producer Jesse Wells and joined by members of The Food Stamps- Rod Elkins (percussion) and Craig Burletic (bass), with Josh Nolan (guitar) from Clay City, KY, The Local Honeys is a celebration of real deal, honest-to-god Kentucky music. With their latest release the duo are poised to become not only the defining voices of their home state of Kentucky but the defining voices of a new Appalachia.
