Honey Pine = Deer Tick + Grateful Dead

Honey Pine is an alternative rock band from our backyard. The Honey Pine guys didn’t name the band after a tree, but rather the verb—to pine—which makes sense. These rockers are after something, and you can hear it when they play. The vocals, drums, guitar and harmonica conquer both the acoustic and electric possibilities of rock music. Every track is as easygoing as the last—11 tracks just aren’t enough! Take something like The Dead’s “Sugar Magnolia,” throw in a pinch of slower tempo alternative country, and you’ve got Honey Pine’s “Never Worked Anyway.” If you’re around Salt Lake City, make sure to see Honey Pine in concert—Bad Brad Wheeler just might show up on the harmonica. –Lizz Corrigan
