It is their third album in three years, with Platt writing 38 of the 39 songs contained therein and they all high quality.

Now they are embarking on their first UK tour and their THL concert will be the penultimate date of the tour.
Musically they are superb and it is all wrapped up with a voice that drips with emotion, heartache and one that takes you on a journey through love and life. Soft rock and folk influences are clearly detected in their Carolina country sound. Amanda’s voice leads the charge with lyrically driven tunes conveying charm and humility.
The Honeycutters ooze class throughout. Excellent musicianship, great song writing and a voice that will make you tingle. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them, they are bound to be playing much bigger venues next time.
Supporting the Honeycutters will be Bridlington singer song writer Gracie Falls. In 2016 she won the Unsigned Song Writer of the Year Award. Her music is emotive, unique and relatable. Gracie is confident, driven, down to earth and incredibly talented.
