"Atmospheric, captivating vocals… Violet Bell puts an avant-garde twist on traditional roots music." - Indy Weekly
North Carolina progressive folk duo Violet Bell tours the East Coast this fall in support of their debut album, "Honey in My Heart."
"Honey in My Heart" is vibrant, full of ebbing and flowing emotion; full of passion, fear, hope, angst, frustration, humor — all the messy emotions comprising the worthwhile chaos of the human experience. Stylistically, the songs take familiar Americana textures and bend them in surprising directions. The album draws from all over the spectrum, ranging from folky psychedelia to subtle jazz and experimental indie-pop. Honey in My Heart is what happens when two musicians at the top of their craft share the same sandbox.
Amanda Bocchi & The Americana Soul Flood open the evening . The Roanoke band marries jazz harmony, roots music and a soulful voice to create their own brand. Amanda's lyrics swing from the sweetness of motherhood to the death rattle of addiction.
