Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears’ music is an exploration of the sordid trappings of ego, isolation, consumption, waste, and war. Sonically inspired by the Hill Country blues, cowpunk, and the Southern soul of Stax, their sound charts new territory, mixing the heavy grooves of Albert King, the punked-up blues of R.L. Burnside, the storytelling of Bobby “Blue” Bland, and the soulfully layered horns of the Stones, all with a heavy stream of lyrical consciousness.
