The Mother Lovin' Honey Tongues:

Something mysterious happens when two similar objects moving in opposite directions collide. They morph, twist and tangle until they become something neither could have become on its own.

So it went with bands Red Haven and Dirty Grace, who collided and began performing as one group in the summer of 2015. After bringing Vancouver songstress Logan Thackray and lifelong creator/performer Aubrey Burke (raised in a full-time clown family) into the mix, the new ‘super band‘ consisted of 8 unique voices/songwriters forming a veritable choir.

The Mother Lovin’ Honey Tongues were born, as was a new distinct genre – ‘Swamp Opera‘ – that combines Americana roots grit and indie swing with soulful harmonies and beat-boxing. Crafting delicate folk arrangements and stomping dance numbers, the band embraces a wide palette – from accordion to saxophone to mandolin to mouth percussion – to express the ancient soul of the modern era. Whether it’s songs about shadows, earth magik, grimey handshakes or lovers old and new, this band of many faces will show you them all.

Excited to release their debut album “Live At Monarch Studios” in summer 2017, The Mother Lovin’ Honey Tongues have already begun confirming spots at summer festivals across B.C. and Alberta, including the Vancouver Island Music Fest (which draws 10,000 attendants annually). With 8 hearts bent towards celebration and 16 eyes on the open road, these Mother Lovers hope to share the Honey with you soon!

In live performance this powerhouse will liberate feet and catapult audiences into whole-­‐hearted dance entrancement, making for an engaging show that is fun for all ages and leaves the audience wanting more.

Compassion Gorilla’s recent travels have taken them to festival stages across the pacific northwest, including highlights at the Victoria International Jazz Festival, Starbelly Jam, Robson Valley Music Festival, Folk Life Northwest, Bella Coola Music Festival, and the Kispiox Valley Music Festival.
