The Honey Trees are California duo Becky Filip and Jacob Wick. Today marks the release of their debut album Bright Fire. It’s a big day for them, as the album has been in the works for four years. With just one listen to their music you can immediately tell that they take careful consideration into the making of their music. Especially in this day in age, where everyone is in an arms race to maintain buzz. It’s amazing that a band is still willing to take that much time to release their album
“By The River” is a track off the album and I have the honor or premiering it right here with you today.
Part of it is grand, the other part intimate. The big sweeping strings take you far upwards towards the heavens, while the heart-wrenching vocals of Becky Filip keep you grounded at a more natural beauty. It’s the type of songs that transports you to a special place, where this kind of magic not only exists, but thrives.
Enjoy “By The River” below, and head here to purchase the album if you like what you hear.
