“They sound more authentic than 99.99% of the artists who make up this thing called popular music… Like. Like. Like.” - Ed Maxin, Blogger for No Depression
“Not only are they brilliant musicians, Laura and Kagey are wonderful people whose music is as genuine as their personalities. They have the chops to make it big but more importantly, their sincerity and kindness will vault them to a whole new level in the coming years.” - Bradley Kolodner, WICB, Ithaca, NY
The Honey Dewdrops are the Virginia-based roots duet of Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish. With a blend of new Americana and traditional folk music, they create inspired songs that are rooted in the experience and lives of people. Their sound is transcendent; they write all their own songs and yet no one could ever peg them as just another singer-songwriter couple, not when they’ve embedded a sparse Appalachian clarity on every track that is accessible to listeners everywhere. The songs they write shine with energy and emotion through intimate performances with a handful of acoustic instruments and tightly layered harmonies.
On stage, the Honey Dewdrops focus on dynamically blending the sounds of instruments and voices by singing and playing into a single microphone. There is a high lonesome quality to the way their voices blend that is familiar, yet the mixture is unique. Their music covers the ground between hand crafted folk songs, Appalachian ﬁddle tunes, and a cappella spirituals. In their own way, the duo ﬁlls up a room with sound and feeling that lingers long after the show is over.
