I love the dark and sweltry atmosphere. I love the female singer and harp moaning together. The use of the wind instruments catches me by surprise - again and again. Did I say I love the elaborate songs?

For a good few years, Honeyfeet has been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester based musicians. Jazz? Yes, some of that! Folk? Stick that in there! Hip-hop? I thought you'd never ask!
Someone once called it Folk-Hop and Barrelhouse-pop, and that's just vague enough to make sense. Honeyfeet have spent the past 8 years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It's all very lovely. It helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly, Real World's newest signing and “a remarkable singer and flautist who...can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul” (The Guardian).
Honeyfeet released the album “It's a Good Job I Love You” in November 2013. Their next, as yet untitled album, will be released on Wah Wah 45s in 2018.
