CD Release Celebration of Steampunk Serenade
Erik Lawrence – Saxophones; Rene Hart - Bass, Electronics/Looping; Allison Miller - Drums and Percussion
Honey Ear Trio is the new incarnation of long time musical cohorts Erik Lawrence, Rene Hart, and Allison Miller. They are celebrating the release of their debut album, Steampunk Serenade. Together, these three passionate musicians approach the music with a sense of playfulness and elasticity. Honey Ear Trio creatively fuses the acoustic sound of a traditional saxophone trio with modern electronics derived from Hart's manipulation of his acoustic bass sound. They also explore mixing multiple genres (jazz, rock, soul, folk) while bending, stretching, and decompressing the rhythmic and harmonic characteristics of the music.
