UPDATE #7 12/07: A Video Song From Lech "Up Above My Head": "Here's a spiritual song I like to sing at the beginning of every time I perform. While gospel music has been the music that really inspired me to sing as well as what I listen to most, its not necessarily the right music for a party at a night club. This song is special because its message is not as much about religious belief as it is about the spiritual power of music, and a reminder that we are always in the presence of something greater than just ourselves. I believe, the word 'heaven' , is open to interpretation." - Lech
Since our humble beginnings as a street band in 2008 the California Honeydrops have recorded 2 acclaimed albums of original music. Soul Tub! earned us a "Best New Artist" nomination from the National Blues Foundation in Memphis and Spreadin' Honey won "Best Local Album of 2011" in the SF Bay Area. We have toured Europe 6 times and gone up and down the west and east coasts more times that we can count. This year we took home 5 honors from the Bay Area Press and completed our first east coast tour. What makes us most proud is that we have achieved all this without the help of a record label or a booking agent!
Our independence from outside influences has kept our art pure and from the heart. It has also been TONS of work. But its been a labor of love for us and that love has been reciprocated by thousands of devoted fans around the world that have kept our band alive and working for the past 4 years. Right now, with your support, we're hoping to take the Honeydrops to the next level. We want to record the best album we can and get as many people as possible to hear it. But making an album and getting a band's name out there costs A LOT of money that we don't have.
The lowest amount a "Big Stage Band" will spend on one album with the PR to support it is around $150,000. We think we can do pretty good with at least $25,000 to start on the recording/production of a new album and to hire professional help get our name ringing out throughout the land. So help make us a little "Bigger" so we can can keep spreadin' the honey. Ya dig?
Any amount you give goes a long way! Thank you so much for your support!
~ All our Love, The California Honeydrops
