"You can be happy to have such a talented musician in your city" - Justin Vernon (Bon Iver, Volcano Choir)

For Stefan Honig, who originally initiated HONIG as a solo project, a lot has happened in the past two years since the first two CD releases and over 300 live shows. Where the songs used to be written by him alone, the singer has involved the whole live-band in the creation of "It's Not A Hummingbird, It's Your Father's Ghost". The songs were written together, materialized in the rehearsal room, changed and matured with time, and were completed as a band.

"It isn't as if the emergence of the album had been planned, it just evolved. Out of the tour-band grew the band. We spent a lot of time together and messed around with the songs for weeks, everyone incorporated his ideas and at the end "It's Not A Hummingbird, It's Your Father's Ghost" was born."

Work on the new album began in summer 2013
On the 22 August 2014 HONIG will release their third album "It's Not A Hummingbird, It's Your Father's Ghost" in Europe through Haldern Pop Recordings / Rough Trade.
"It's Not A Hummingbird, It's Your Father's Ghost" is not a typical songwriter album. The result is a complex and sophisticated achievement, forceful and sensitive at the same time. HONIG have flourished, and by combining clever arrangements with sticky melodies create a sound that works. Now they play folk-pop for the bigger stages, and fear neither grandiosity nor sensitivity.
