Honey Ryder release a new single ‘You Can’t Say That’ on 29th July. The single has been taken from their forthcoming second studio album ‘Marley’s Chains’ released on 22nd July via Oceanic/EMI. The first single from the album, ‘Marley’s Chains’, was very well supported at radio with play listing on Radio 2 and across the Smooth network.
‘You Can’t Say That’ was written about someone desperate to finish a relationship with a partner who was bad for them, with their greatest fear being lured back into a destructive situation through their own weakness and addiction to the relationship.
The song was written just before the band performed at the Belfast Empire when they jammed back stage, but took months to finish; a real labour of love.
The effort paid off as this was the track that captured legendary producer and mentor Paul Worley’s (Lady Antebellum/The Dixie Chicks) imagination who instigated the band working with a host of Grammy-award winning musicians in the States.
Singer Lindsay O’Mahony and guitarist Jason Huxley are no strangers to widespread success having enjoyed two UK Top 40 singles from their critically acclaimed debut album 'Rising Up', which lead to supporting the likes of Will Young and Michael Bolton in UK wide arena tours.
Now joined by second guitarist Matt Bishop, the band has crafted an album laden with sumptuous, country and folk-fused pop songs.
The video for ‘You Can’t Say That’ was filmed in LA and includes a performance at the legendary Mint Club on West Pico Blvd.
Live the band are playing a residency at the prestigious 33 Portland Place, where they also filmed the video for ‘Marley’s Chains’ and are performing at the Hop Farm Festival as well as a handful of regional dates to support the albums release.
