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 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.
