Honey Island Swamp Band
Great music begins with great songs, and great songs are what the Honey Island Swamp Band is all about. The band came together after 4 friends were marooned in San Francisco after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Formed on the strength of timeless songs from Aaron Wilkinson and Chris Mulé, HISB's "Bayou Americana" sound has been compared to the music of such fore fathers as Lowell George, Earl King, Taj Mahal, Jerry Garcia, Clarence
"Gatemouth" Brown, GramParsons and Jimmy Reed. Their eponymous EP was recorded in 2006 at famed studio The Plantin Sausalito, CA, and was received so well that they all decided to continue the band upon moving back home to New Orleans in 2007. Wishing Well, the band's first full length album won "Best Blues Album" of 2009 from Off Beat Magazine, which has also honored Honey Island Swamp Band as "Best Emerging Artist" of 2009 and "Best Roots Rock
Artist" of 2010. And most recently the band was awarded "Best Roots Rock Artist" the past two years (2011&2012) at the Big Easy Awards, widely considered the "Grammys of New Orleans". HISB's newest offering –Good To You – was nominated by Off Beat Magazine as "Best Roots Rock Album" of 2010, was named to numerous "Top 10 CDS of 2010" lists, and has become a staple of most DJs on the Crescent City's legendary radio station WWOZ, as well as on Sirius/XM satellite radio's Bluesville and traditional stations from coast‐to‐coast. Featuring the southern strut of songs such as "Country Girl", "300 Pounds" and the album's first single
"Chocolate Cake", Good To You illuminates the mix of country‐inflected rock and New Orleans funky blues that makes Honey Island Swamp Band's music so familiar and unique at the same time.
