The Sound of Thinking Big

Honey White makes music of intense power and sweet release. We used to be from Santa Barbara, California, but now we’re from everywhere. The last time you saw us, we were most likely melting your eardrums with a hazy, spacious void of sonic effects and instrumental textures.

Our music is not the soundtrack to the rest of your life. It’s the background noise for the time right before you have any idea what the rest of your life will bring. Don’t go underwater, or into space, or even into the recesses of your own mind without a Honey White soundtrack.

The Band

Honey White began in Santa Barbara during the fearful year of 2002, when the brothers (and Mojo Wire bandmates) Bryn and Keir DuBois recruited guitarist Brian Wolff and drummer Bill Fedderson to help them mash together rock, roots, punk, and reggae into a unique mix of expansively epic noise.

Their debut demo My Band Rocks was praised by the Santa Barbara Independent as “some of the best music to come out of Isla Vista,” and then after unloading three self-produced live albums in as many years, Honey White unleashed a new studio album of crushing power and sweet release titled How Far is the Fall.

The group has been based in the Santa Barbara area, but they have also made live appearances around California in support of their album, recorded in San Francisco with Jonathan Mayer. A fourth live disc—Deluge and Drought—was released in 2007.

Honey White reunited briefly in late 2010, resulting in the one-off Corridan demo, but went into semi-permanent hibernation the following year. Bill departed for Colorado, Brian formed the Neuro Farm in Washington D.C., and the brothers DuBois formed Radblaster in Orange County.
