hONEyhoUSe blew the lid off the old Black Forest Community Center last time their powerful harmonies filled the room. The acoustic group combines the talents of five very diverse and seasoned artists into one unexpected musical force. Consisting of award-winning R&B/gospel soulstress Hillary Smith, earthy blues/folk singer-songwriter Yvonne Perea, sweet-voiced Mandy Buchanan, drummer Dianne DeLeon, and bassist Danielle Andrade, hONEyhoUSe seamlessly melds the lines of musical genres with original creations embracing blues, soul, folk, and Americana.
The New Mexico Music Industry Coalition has presented hONEyhoUSe with numerous awards, among them, Best Album, Song of the Year, Best in Americana, Best Vocal, and Best Production. These women have become a favorite at the Michael Hearne Big Barn Dance Music Festival, inciting the audience to rise to their feet during each performance.
hONEyhoUSe recently signed with Americana label Howlin' Dog Records to record and release their 5th album, “Kick Up The Dust.” They will begin a “Kick Up The Dust” tour starting January 2019.
