Honey & the 45's is a Chicago-based 5-piece band that combines elements of folk, blues, funk, and soul. Their powerful vocals, poetic lyrics, and pocket grooves deliver a sometimes playful, sometimes somber sound like nothing you've heard before.
The band was formed in Chicago in October 2009 as folk/acoustic trio Snow on Sunday by core members Kristina Cottone, Kim Kozel and Chris Kusek. After a few lineup changes, Honey evolved into a full rock ‘n’ roll review by adding guitarist Jon Gould and bassist Max Benson. They have played all over Chicago including The Abbey Pub, The Red Line Tap, Reggie's, The Elbo Room, a live radio performance on WZRD, the Lakeview East Festival of the Arts, and even a live podcast on Chicago Acoustic Underground.
Their EP "Hot Off the Press" was released in September 2011 and in October they will be going into the studio to record their first full length LP. They are always expanding their fan base; with their eclectic music, along with an energetic live show to boot, Honey & the 45's is becoming an exciting presence in Chicago.The band looks forward to making more music and seeing what the future will bring!
