CLEAN LUST AND DIRTY LAUNDRY
Honey collaborated with an amazing line up of producers on “Clean Lust and Dirty Laundry:” Lions Share (Anthony Hamilton, Pharoahe Monch), Caviar (T.I), Danish Reggae producer, Pharfar (Beenie Man, Sizzla), and several up-and-coming geniuses. Her warm yet edgy mash-up of classic soul, hip-hop, and electro-pop is appealing to all audiences. With the final touches blended and mixed by fellow Canadian Super-DJ Miss Erica Dee, you should bee excited. Bee very excited.
Honey Larochelle, the “Pin-Up Honey Bee”, airs out her growth, transitions, mistakes, and passions on a clothing line for the world to see. This is not your average mixtape built on other people’s beats or songs. The honey of this record is all-original ear candy.
“THE PIN-UP HONEY BEE”
Honey started out in a cover band in high school. Now, after years of relentless hustle, she is performing with the same artists she used to cover, including Joss Stone, Macy Gray, Roberta Flack, The Brand New Heavies, and many others. Her riveting performances have brought this college dropout to packed houses and stages in over twenty countries, and with her recent release of “Clean Lust and Dirty Laundry” finally, her fans have the chance to take her home with them.
Beyond performing, Honey’s passion for the architecture of music has led to her being hired to write songs, arrange vocals, and vocal produce for several artists, like Jennifer Hudson, who says “I’ve never seen anything like her. She just asked me a few questions about myself and my life, and next thing you know she had a verse and hook written.”
Originally dubbed the “Urban Honeybee” from her days as the lead singer of girl group “Urbanesque,” (Titanium Records) and now dubbed the “Pin-Up Honey Bee,” Honey’s naturally seductive persona and adoration of all things Marylin and hip-hop gives Honey a versatility that not many artists get to enjoy. Whether she rocks feathers, lace, and fishnets; gowns and combat boots; or ripped denim and heels, Honey is always noticed when she walks into a room. Some say it’s her inner light that shines bright. Others say it’s her undeniable sex appeal. Either way, her presence is felt…and now her voice can be heard.
“Honey is a pure artist. Her voice drips of love and sex. Her words are magic” says good friend and confidant Macy Gray. Recently, Honey and Gray worked together to release Honey’s first single and music video “Work it Out” on Macy Gray’s record label, Moonslice Records and Tapes. Since then, Honey is happily taking charge of her own fast growing buzz. Since making the decision to forge ahead alone, she has been approached by several labels, producers, and licensing companies, all excited to “get in bed” with Honey, but this lady is picky and wants to see peoples’ “papers” before making any hasty decisions. In the meantime, she invites you to “feast on this ear candy.”
Without a doubt, Honey is a triple-threat: an amazing singer, songwriter, and musician. With her chameleon-like talents, glowing persona, and passion for the stage, Honey Larochelle is a name to remember and a classic to hold on to. Buzz.
