New album coming soon!
We’ve been working hard to bring you the finest new album that we can…and we think we’ve done a pretty good job! Right now we’re getting our ducks in a row to set a release date, which will be announced here as well as on our facebook page, signposts, telephone polls, windshields, and pretty much anywhere else we can find to get the word out. You can sign up for our weblist if you’d rather not get a flyer under your windshield wipers, of course. In the meantime enjoy our site, you can listen to some tunes, watch some live performance videos, buy some quality Honeycutters products, or just generally enjoy our fancy new website. Thanks for stopping by!

WNCW Offers High Praise for Amanda Anne Platt
Amanda Anne Platt has been hailed as “one of the best songwriters coming out of WNC these days” by WNCW programming director Martin Anderson, and her voice has been described as “perfectly unadorned” and “recklessly beautiful”. Her song, “Little Bird,” won second place in the general category of the MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting contest in 2011 as well as taking home the grand prize in the Great Lakes Songwriting Contest that same year. Dane Smith of Asheville NC’s Mountain Xpress writes “Her songs make you sad…in a good way!”
In both her simple composition and honest delivery it’s easy to hear the influence of country legends such as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, or Loretta Lynn, and with this Miss Platt credits growing up listening to her father’s extensive record collection every Saturday morning. Despite her love for classic country, she cites Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty as major influences and her songwriting carries a wit and an edge that plants her firmly in her generation.
