We have been busy like bees, driving here and there, fine-tuning sets for all the abundant fall shows and events we have the honor to be a part of, and preparing for some exciting recording projects coming up as well… The Sierra foothill forests put on the most beautiful Autumn show, and things seem like they’re starting to wind down for the season and then, whooosh! Here comes the next round of amazing collaborations and events. We say YES to all that!
Soul Graffiti Studios
Our studio has been jumping with liveliness and action as artists come through to rehearse, record audio and video, and classes are happening almost daily now in multiple rooms at once. If you are interested in joining our school or community, once again, feel free to sign up here, or check out our school website here. Our music school is getting busy with Academy students working through our music production program, plus short courses expanded to advanced DAW, Mixing and Mastering, Beat Making, and more!

Honey of the Heart & BrightSide Blue @ Harbin Hot Springs! – 11/4/23 @ 8 pm
Honey of the Heart will be performing with our dear friends BrightSide Blue (and Thomas Spellman for his birthday!!) at the amazing Harbin Hot Springs this upcoming Saturday! Get your reservations now. It is our only full set superband combo show scheduled so far this fall! Our good friends the Feelings Parade recently did a show there they called ‘Soak & Sob’, and we liked that a lot, but cant imagine stealing it, so lets play with a little twist on theme… like soak & soothe, or soak & savor, or soak & soul…. you get the idea, right (feel free to help us out!)? Anyhow, come soak and soothe your soul in our sonic sea of sound! 😉 We’re stoked to swim in sound with our sweet, steady siblings of song and support sympathetic sustained, soul salve for your soul & senses.
Hope we sssee you ssssoon for a ssssoaking ssssesh.
Honey of the Heart & Justin Ancheta live @ the Crazy Horse Saloon (Nevada City, CA) – 11/24/2 @ 9 pm – 1 am
Mark your calendars, get your dancing shoes on, and come ready to bask in the audio bath + groove of this special night (after Thanksgiving). We will be pulling out all the stops, with all-star cast such as Gary Regina on Sax, Tum Bulkley on drums, Thomas Spellman on Bass, and DJ Fossil scratching. A rare performance by Justin Ancheta Band is sure to be a good time as they bring out the good old funk reggae dynamic improv magic soup.
Night of Giving with BrightSide Blue & Honey of the Heart Superband! – 12/16/2023
We are honored to be asked to play at this year’s annual Night of Giving (NOG) event at the Center for the Arts in December, along with many other talented & amazing musicians. It is such a good cause and such an incredible line-up as well. Huge love and props out to Maggie McKaig for being creatress and seeing this through in such a powerful way, as she has for many years now.
