Their music has been described as Appalachian honky tonk, and being from the mountains of North Carolina, that’s maybe as close as it gets. But, The Honeycutters have a richer depth of character than that suggests – a factor that has won them a much wider span of appreciation around the world.
The five-piece boasts a powerful lead vocalist in Amanda Anne Platt, who has been rightly compared to some of the great female performers of the post-war years. Their albums attract 5-star ratings and have landed the band on many “Best-of” end-of-the-year lists.

Scottish-Italian singer and songwriter Adriana Spina’s sound is often hard to categorise. Fiercely independent, she has worked hard to craft her blend of Americana, folk and country.
«Reminiscent of a young Joni Mitchell, (Adriana) is gifted with one of those glorious aching voices that just don't come along too often… these are great songs performed with panache and passion.» Acoustic Magazine
«The depth of the album comes through its easy transference from thoughtful, longing beauty to potent ‘no prisoners’ expression.
