Honey Harper

2020
Starmaker

Honey Harper‘s celestial cosmic country debut album Starmaker, is now available everywhere.  Starmaker comes as a collection of contradictions in both subject matter and style. Written with his wife and writing partner Alana Pagnutti over the past three years, the album itself is primarily about the journey to create it. Its self-awareness is largely the result of Harper’s inner monologues about his fear of failure, desire for success, and the toll that journey has taken on him and his loved ones. It’s an attempt at honesty through the veil of a country singer lost in the stars.

After explorations in other vastly different styles, Harper recognized the value he could add to a genre with beautiful sounds but negative connotations. On Starmaker, Harper seeks to revitalize country music for people who don’t like country music.

 

 

Starmaker also includes previous singles “Tomorrow Never Comes,” “Vaguely Satisfied,” and “Strawberry Lite”. The album itself is primarily about the journey to create it, following his mysterious emergence with “Secret” from 2017’s critically-acclaimed Universal Country EP. The new album’s self-awareness is largely the result of Harper’s inner monologues about his fear of failure, desire for success, and the toll that journey has taken on him and his loved ones. It’s an attempt at honesty through the veil of a country singer lost in the stars. With album appearances from Sébastian Tellier, Austra, and John Kirby, the contrast of the songs becomes even more apparent and set Honey Harper apart to become the torch-bearer for a revitalized country sound.
