Drew Blackwell is true southern boy who was raised in the heart of the black prairie in Mississippi. He first picked up the guitar at the age of fourteen and was greatly influenced by his Uncle Doug, who taught him old country and folk classics. Later, he was also mentored and inspired to write (and feel) the blues by Willie King, an Alabama blues artist. All these influences are what you will hear in his writing and his stories come alive in his songs.
Courtney grew up in Washington state and comes from a talented musical family. She began playing the cello at the age of three. Her mother was most influential in her progression of technique, tone quality and ear training.
Since traveling around the southern states she has enjoyed focusing on the variety of ways the cello is used in ensembles. When she plays, you will feel those groovy bass lines which ultimately make way to soaring lead parts that are sure to create an emotional and magical connection between you and her music.
Together Honeyboy and Boots have a unique style that is all their own. This husband/wife, guitar/cello duo plays a blend of old blues and folk covers, country ballads, and originals that are straight from the heart. Americana, folk, alt country, blues -all these words describe their sound, which is always changing and growing.
