ASHEVILLE, NC —  After a whirlwind of a summer, Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters are excited to return home from overseas and play two nights at The Grey Eagle, Friday and Saturday, November 2 and 3 as a homecoming! Amanda says, “This has been one of the craziest summers of my life… possibly the craziest year. There’s so much going on in the world, and my own small world has seen its share of changes, from babies being born, illness, our tour van burning to a crisp on the side of the Texas highway, getting married…and this tour has been a wonderful way to encapsulate all the madness. It’s an incredible feeling to be so far from home and hear people singing along with every word of one of my songs. We’ve been in so many different places and met so many new people, and where I might have expected to feel lost and scattered, there has been an overwhelming sense of connectedness and camaraderie at every turn.”

Lyrically driven, the songs of Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters blend the band’s old-school country roots attitude with their shared influences of rock and folk. Based in Asheville, North Carolina, Amanda Anne Platt is a storyteller by nature with an incredible band backing her. Performing along Platt, The Honeycutters are Matt Smith on pedal steel and guitar, Rick Cooper on bass, Josh Milligan on drums and harmony vocals, and Evan Martin on keys and guitar.

The band is thrilled to have returned from their overseas tour which will led them back to England and Scotland as well as to Ireland, Spain, and The Netherlands from late August through the end of September! To some wonderful International reviews:

Jump In Hot’s Juan Fitzgerald writes, ““Amanda Platt and her band The Honeycutters from Asheville, North Carolina brought over a warm country glow … and provided top class songs and musicianship throughout the evening… for me her solo spot was another high spot and the song ‘Americas Blues’  about the dreadful state of American politics at this present time again hit the spot.”

Americana UK’s Jim Finnie writes of them, “Great songwriting, an incredibly tight sound with very high-quality musicianship from the whole band and it all gets brought together with Amanda’s glorious voice,” and Rootstime in Belgium says, “Amanda’s singing heartbreakingly beautiful.”

A homegrown entity, the band is critically acclaimed locally, regionally, nationally, as well as overseas. Their most recent album Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters [Organic Records 2017] placed #2 (sandwiched between Jason Isbell and Gregg Allman) in their regional radio station WNCW’s year end listeners poll for 2017! The station’s Music Director Martin Anderson said to No Depression, “Amanda Platt writes songs on par with Lucinda, Isbell, Lauderdale, Hank Sr. In my opinion, anyway.”

Music City Roots’ Craig Havighurst writes, “She’s soothing (even in the hurtin’ songs) and sobering (except for the drinkin’ songs) and nuanced in a way that I think tops even those rather famous ladies of the moment named Margo and Kacey… I’d be hard pressed to find a finer string of recordings from any band working in the classic country/mountain tradition in these last five years.”

Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters are a diamond in the rough, and through their music, travels, the friendships they make along the way, they will continue to bring music straight from the heart to the world.
