Honey B & T-Bones
- Evolutive blues -
None of that run-of-the-mill grind, but a heady cocktail, where the best psychedelic elements from 1960’s San Francisco meet Mississippi blues in a garage, with serious intentions. The phat bass lines and the funky and rich drumming build a house, where fiery and earthy slide will take no prisoners. The cherry on the cake comes by courtesy of Honey B’s singing. Think of updated Memphis Minnie and you’re close. She hails from Finland.
Honey B. Family is a natural born trio. Lead vocalist and bass player Aija ”Honey B” Puurtinen and guitar player/singer Esa Kuloniemi are complemented by their 15-year old son Moses on drums and vocals.
After a 35-year career (as the front figures of Honey B & T-Bones), Puurtinen and Kuloniemi are considered true legends in the Finnish blues scene, and Junior is already an esteemed jazz and blues drummer in his own right. The trio’s debut album consists mostly of originals added with some blues and gospel classics.
