Jaime and Sky first started writing together in 2001.
After some successful studio recordings and one or two
helpful words from those that count,
they put the rumHoney band together and began to play the songs live.
By 2006 their music had taken them all over the UK, as well as France, Spain and Italy.
In January 2008 rumHoney set off
for a 2 week mini tour in the Italian Alps;
4 months and more than 100 gigs later they returned with
both a faint grasp of the Italian
and a firm desire to record all the songs that had been written on the road. Work on East to West began in June 2008.
The music of rumHoney is a celebration of their roots.
The sound is blues-based on the twin guitar attack
of the great rock n roll bands, such as
The Black Crowes, and The Rolling Stones the same bands they grew up listening to and treasuring as rumHoney younglings.
After some years working together
rumHoney have developed their own sound and direction and have financed
and produced their own music with no external assistance or influence.
Together with manager Steve Blacknell, rumHoney are currently attacking the London gig cicuit as they always have.
The new album release East to West is targeted for summer 2011 on all formats.
Peter Anthony, Radio Caroline: I love this band.
They in my opinion are a welcome shot of something thatll cure ailments.
These guys have studied the artform, realized their strategy, and now quite rightly want to show off
. The business should be proud to have such ability suddenly come knocking out of the wild blue yonder
Derek Adams, Time Out: Their recordings
demonstrate a deep-rooted understanding and feel for
soundscapes of early seventies records; and yet they manage to make it all sound fresh, modern and unique.
Todays upload I nearly didn't share with you as it is very personal. You
have seen my posts about Alabama and this was the ultimate personal
pilgrimage to honour Tom Hendrix's great great grandmother. A journey I
connected with from afar and one I am so blessed to have finally made.
Singing to this 86 year old stone talker, I was overcome with emotion.
This is for me the reason I love music. Never let the legends fade
people NEVER ❤
