Honey Gentry is a London-raised singer and songwriter. Her second EP, Dreamlover, is expected in July 2019 and will follow 2018's debut EP Moonlight. In January 2019, NME Magazine named Honey Gentry as part of the NME100 - artists they have tipped to watch in 2019, calling her “the rising singer-songwriter making elegantly sad pop to break your heart”. Moonlight was "dreamily dark... deeply hypnotic" (Bristol in Stereo), "delicious in every way" (Comeherefloyd) and "beautiful and unforgettable" (diamonddeposits). Honey has focused as much of her efforts across the pond as at home, and most of Gentry's airplay has been courtesy of the Californian college circuit, with Bay- area serving KALX radio premiering Heaven California in April 2018, and most Spotify fans being based in LA and Sao Paolo.
Gentry’s style is soaked with reverb and intrigue. Her debut EP, Moonlight (2018) comprises four tracks all constructed of just vocals and layers of luxurious guitar work courtesy of collaborator Ruben Elbrond-Palmer. Momentum around Gentry has been building online since early 2017, and she continues to attract fans from around the world.
"The rising singer-songwriter making elegantly sad pop to break your heart" - NME, The NME 100: Essential New Artists for 2019
USP: A sigh that feels like it weighs a tonne, but only serves to make her songs more magical.
Why you’re going to love them: Honey Gentry knows how to craft a song for those days when you can barely lift your head off the pillow – lethargic but beautiful and poised in its misery. That all she needs is her emotive voice and barely more than a guitar to make you feel at one with her marks her out as someone very special.
Key track: ‘Bleed, Honey’
NEW SONG DAYDREAM BABY OUT 14 JUNE 2019
Daydream Baby is a reflection on dealing with a breakup or painful experience by almost turning it into legend, daydreaming not only about the lover but the way the relationship ends; romanticising being rejected "by the ocean", "kiss me goodbye in slow motion" - applying a cinematic rose-tinted memory in order to separate oneself from the raw, honest pain of a messy, human breakup.
