New Music Tuesday: Honey Gentry – H.G. [Album]

 

Hello Folks! And welcome back to our first New Music Tuesday in quite some time. We have gone away from this segment over the last few months, but today we have an album to talk about that is simply too good to pass up the chance to boast over and tell you all to rush out and get ASAP.

If you all could think way way back to the year 2019. August. A mere 13 months to the date, but feeling like a lifetime ago, we showcased a brilliant singer songwriter and their EP, Dreamlover. It was an absolutely masterpiece of an EP with tracks landing solidly on our Top 100 Songs list. Well, that singer songwriter is Honey Gentry, and it appears as though she is back to steal and/or break our hearts again with her beautiful sad pop songs that evoke just the deepest of emotions. And while escapism is always an option in your musical choices, maybe some times it is best to reflect on the chaos and how sad things can get, in order to make them better. Well, if the latter is to be believed, I can not recommend Honey Gentry’s full length album, H.G., to you enough. It’s a delicate yet impactful album filled with blissful tales of tragedy yet also triumph.

One quality of Honey Gentry’s work that seems obvious to me is her amazing voice. It’s one of those collection of vocal elements that is very familiar, yet incredibly unique, and all around pleasant. She is also one hell of a songwriter. Whether she is tackling subjects like identity, isolation, mental illness, or loss & beyond, Honey makes it an audible experience for the ages. She’ll even bring a low-key Madonna in the 80’s tone on a track like “Losing My Charm” that is beautiful! But, as we tend to lead towards the more catchy and melodic tracks around here, and I love every every song on this album, much like having multiple children….you have to chose a favorite. Sorry, this is just the truth. So for me, it’s a tie between “Valentine” and “The Bell Jar” for the stealing of my heart.

So, listen to it for yourself, Folks! It’s available today. It also happens to be Honey Gentry’s birthday! So let’s make it one that she is not surely to forget. You get to hear one of the best (if not THE best?) albums of 2020, and Honey can continue to bring her magic into the world. Everybody wins.

Seriously Folks, the sky is the limit for this incredible artist, and you are going to want to get on board now. So take a nice look back at her two previous EPs, and check out H.G. today! You truly will not regret it.

 

To grab a copy of H.G. today, head to wherever you listen to music or I would recommend heading to honeygentry.com to get it on digital or limited edition vinyl. Enjoy!
