Fact Sheet 2013

 

“Somewhere, there exists a dark, smoky bar with a jukebox that spins George Jones, Gram Parsons, Delbert McClinton, and Little Feat. And if that fantasy honky-tonk lights your Marlboro, you need to know about Honey Island Swamp Band.”

Broward-Palm Beach New Times

 “Blues, Southern rock boogie, Appalachian music and New Orleans swamp funk all factor into their sound, but it’s decidedly their own.”

                         Keith Spera, New Orleans Times-Picayune

 

“Vintage country meets GulfCoast boogie-woogie blues.”

Baltimore Sun

“The HoneyIslandSwamp is a real place. It resides near the border of Louisiana and Mississippi. It’s therefore a fitting name for this band that draws inspiration from the music of those two states. With the Honey Island Swamp Band, soul, country, R&B and blues are all on equal footing. The two man songwriting/guitarist team of Chris Mulé and Aaron Wilkinson produce expressive, hook-laden tunes that honor songcraftwhile respecting the groove.”

Jambase.com

“What a fine band this is –an utterly refreshing, unpretentious group of first-rate instrumentalists who also sing engagingly. Their music is as delicious as their name.”

Susan Peña, The Reading Eagle

 

“Wilkinson’s songs lean toward country rock in the vein of the Band, early Eagles, or Lynyrd Skynyrd. Mule’s songs have a more rhythm and blues edge and a cynical, kiss-off sentiments as in ‘I can’t live the way / you’re killing me.’”

David Kunian, Offbeat Magazine

“Straddling the line between soulful funk and country rock, Good To You cranks out good time tunes from the Crescent City, carrying the torch for forbearers like the Subdudes and Radiators.”

Honest Tune Magazine

 

“A jolly rocking, sweet, swampy set of travelin’, drinkin’ and lovin’ trouble songs. . . 50 minutes of catchy hooks and gen-you-wine blue-eyed soul from one of New Orleans’ hardest working barroom bands.”                                                                       

Chris Rose, New Orleans Times Picayune

“Whether moving easily from moments Dead infused or Dr. John influenced, their self-described Bayou Americana sound never loses sight of its swampy swagger or solo driven joy.”

Jim Brock, EyeOnTheMusic.com

 

“The Honey Island Swamp Band has matured from a burgeoning local act to a regional powerhouse to a touring outfit poised for a national breakthrough…it has garnered a sizable fan base across the country and served up two worthy studio efforts (2009’s Wishing Well and 2010’s Good to You).”

Aaron Lafont, Offbeat Magazine
