Music Styles: Country • SoCal Country Pop
Must be 21+ years of age to attend this event
SoCal country-pop, delivered by a trio of L.A.-based females who write their own songs, play their own instruments and stack their harmonies three layers deep.
A Virginia native, Dani Rose moved to Los Angeles during the early 2010s. There, she found herself gravitating toward the sounds, stories, and swagger of country music, a genre that had been so prevalent back home. When an opportunity arose to open for LeAnn Rimes, Rose accepted the gig, performing in front of thousands of new fans and, in the process, laying the brickwork for the formation of her own country band.
You won’t find Honey County on any map. Launched in 2014, the group takes its name from a fictional place, a move that allows Rose and her two bandmates — Devon Jane and Katie Stump — to create their own landscape of story-driven country; modern, melodic pop; and punchy, guitar-fueled rock (an influence that’s strengthened by Jane, the trio’s lead guitarist, whose fretwork has landed her gigs with everyone from Keith Urban to Ceelo Green). The band wasted little time developing its audience in California and beyond.
Genuine fans of the country music tradition, the members of Honey County have also paid tribute to their influences, creating covers of songs like Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush”, Garth Brooks’ “People Loving People” and Maren Morris’ “I Could Use a Love Song.” They’ve created even more of a stir with their own original music.
For Fans of: Little Big Town’s vocal arrangements, Keith Urban’s guitar tones and Wilson Phillips’ pop hooks.
Opener: BRIAN MARS
