Honey Gentry-Heaven, California

Friend of the site Kate Epps has a new musical project called Honey Gentry, and today she released the second single. It’s a brooding lullaby with a dreamy, eerie familiarity. A little over a year ago she put out a solo EP called Soft Pink, and on her new material she’s joined by guitarist Ruben Elbrond-Palmer. His work helps to give this song a compelling sound much different than the acoustic version which was also just released.

Epps excels at writing late-night, staring at the ceiling, existential lyrics to which anyone can relate. She rips away at the surface until the emotional resonance is all that remains. Honey Gentry is no different, trading cleverness for deliberate phrasing and a genuine sense of longing.
