“Their songwriting is first rate, their arrangements and instrumental ability in top form and with a front woman as assertive and impressive as singer Amanda Anne Platt, there’s nothing lacking in presence or execution. The songs may revolve around the need for assurance and affirmation, but clearly, Platt and her colleagues… have every contingency covered.” –No Depression, Lee Zimmerman

The easy swagger of ‘On the Ropes,’ the saunter and sway of ‘Golden Child,’ the unassuming ramble of ‘The Handbook’ and the sweet serenade of ‘500 Pieces’ projects an effortless allure that remains consistently engaging throughout… obviously destined to become a heavyweight contender.” —No Depression, Lee Zimmerman

“From the first moments of the lead-off track On The Ropes you’ll find yourself hooked – and the music won’t let you go as they move through the 12 songs penned by lead vocalist (and guitar player) Amanda Anne Platt… The blend of mandolin and pedal steel are outstanding. When the fourth track ‘The Handbook’ comes on, you’ll be tempted to grab a partner and Texas-swing dance!” Amazon, Steve Ramm

“In between the shiny modern country-pop music of today and the gritty, dusty sound of yesterday you find The Honeycutters stepping forward with a country-Americana sound that catches the ears of both the young and old. Musically, they make a traditional, honky-tonk-flavoured sound bursting with driving rhythmic ambition, enchanting melodies and deeply poetic lyrics.” Alan Cackett (UK)

“Platt is a gifted songwriter and vocalist… She has an authoritative, confident voice that can be sweet, aching, and joyous, sometimes even in the same song. Platt’s voice and the interplay of the guitar and mandolin give this band their unique complex sound – a clear-sounding mash-up of Americana, bluegrass, folk, and honky-tonk.” –Elmore, Jim Hynes

“On The Ropes wonderfully showcases Platt’s dazzling songwriting skills with themes of loss, loneliness, nostalgia and getting the shit kicked out of you by love. All thirteen tracks are original material, except for a fascinating cover of Leonard Cohen’s iconic ‘Hallelujah’, sung in a spellbinding manner and just dripping of honeysuckle and moonshine.” –That Music Mag, Jane Roser

“Whenever you feel that country music is reinventing itself to the extreme and drifting off into dangerous waters, dig just slightly below the surface and salvation is at hand… The devil is in the detail. This is a band that relies on traditional country music instrumentation played and performed by artists who remain true to country music heritage.” –Your Life in a Song (UK)

“This album damn near beats anything coming out of Nashville’s country mainstream these days. The real-life lyrics and the subtle playing of the Honeycutters will insinuate themselves into your psyche like the whispered reassurances of an old friend, touching your heart and opening your eyes to the bittersweet joys and sorrows of everyday life… Spit out that modern country-pop diet soda and pour yourself some of the real stuff. Bottoms up!” –Alan Cackett

“‘Blue Besides’ is a superb song. If it was recorded by Miranda Lambert, it would go to number one. It will remain an album track because that’s the way of the world. They are dominant in their field. Underground Americana that seems to be gravitating towards Asheville in North Carolina which happens to be The Honeycutters’ home town.” –Your Life in A Song (UK), Top 10 Country Albums Of 2016

Remarkable! Delicious country songs” – David Innes, R2 (Rock ‘n’ Reel) magazine (UK)

“12 original songs and probably the best version of “Hallelujah” you’ll ever hear – make this NC-based band a must-hear,” –Amazon, Steve Ramm

“Making strides with all guns blazing” –No Depression, Lee Zimmerman

“Amanda Platt has one of those gorgeous heartache-drenched voices that brings to mind Loretta Lynn or Sheryl Crow” – Julian Piper, Acoustic magazine (UK)

“Great music, amazing lyrics and all in all a complete musical pot pourri and joy!” – Rory Stanbridge, Fatea magazine (UK)

“Her voice is wonderful” – Paul Kerr, Blabber ‘n’ Smoke (UK)

“Excellent – destined for a great future” –  John Roffey, Maverick magazine (UK)

“Like all great songwriters, Platt’s characters are alive, with enough nuance to convince the listener that they have entire lives outside the glimpse they get from the songs…  there’s a delicate balance of melancholy and hope that takes a deft hand to pull off without sounding cliched. Platt’s hand is that deft.” –Examiner, Chris Griffy

“While her country-flavored songs almost always tell a story, The Honeycutters’ musical approach adds a dimension to the tunes that only widens their appeal.” –Mountain Xpress, Bill Kopp
