Honey In Honolulu
Released on 27/08/16
Good feel, country rock, with a good measure of Hawaiian themed love songs
Honey In Honolulu is dedicated to the memory of our great friend John Stannard. We worked together on stage and in the studio, not only on this project, but also on my daughter Lana’s debut album, Lana.
R.I.P John Stannard. 14 March 1957 – 22 August 2015.
Special thanks to all the musicians; it’s been a great privilege to work with such a talented group of fine players. Pedal steel player David Hartley has added the finishing touches to the album; he worked extensively with John Stannard and has made a unique contribution. Thank you David.
