About the Artist
Rooted in a deeply held commitment to create music out of the rich textures of African American legacy and traditions, this female a cappella ensemble possesses a stunning vocal prowess that captures the complex sounds of Blues, spirituals, traditional gospel hymns, rap, reggae, African chants, Hip Hop, ancient lullabies, and jazz improvisation. Sweet Honey’s collective voice, occasionally accompanied by hand percussion instruments, produces a sound filled with soulful harmonies and intricate rhythms.
In the best and in the hardest of times, Sweet Honey in The Rock has come in song to communities across the U.S., and around the world raising her voice in hope, love, justice, peace, and resistance. Sweet Honey invites her audiences to open their minds and hearts and think about who we are and how we treat each other, our fellow creatures who share this planet and, of course, the planet itself.
Sweet Honey took that philosophy into the studio this summer and recorded Are We A Nation?, a song that challenges discriminatory responses to the country’s immigration issues. Co-written by Sweet Honey and Barry Eastmond, the song was produced by the Grammy award-winning Eastmond, and features award-winning Rap artist Yonas.
All Sweet Honey in the Rock performances are interpreted in ASL by Shirley Saxton, who is a permanent member of the ensemble.
