With soul inspired vocals and keyboard based grooves mixing 70's R&B, neo soul, trip hop, and afro beat with classic pop songwriting and production, Honey Noir is Southern California's answer to the recent steady stream of retro flavored soul arriving from the UK. With an aesthetic and look inspired by 70's film icons like Foxy Brown and Cleopatra Jones, lead singer Bridget Graham's powerful voice evokes the smoothness of Dionne Warwick and the edginess of Tina Turner as heard through a contemporary filter. Keyboardist-producer Mark Governor's jazzy cinematic arrangements of heartfelt ballads and socially conscious dance jams reveal influences as far ranging as Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Morcheeba, Gnarls Barkley and Zero 7.
