With her long-standing friend Andy Baker (bass player and sound engineer) and with Brant Rackley (drummer in Japancakes) Shannon Wright stirs again her richness in composition and a voice that's reached a radiant ampleness. The lavish sounds and distant pianos on "Honeybee Girls" and "Father" are unlike and incomparable to her previous recordings. Wright's unique percussive guitar playing affirms its individualism on "Tall Countryside" and "Embers In Your Eyes". The piano, the organ, the guitar and the voice are wreathed with a unique spirit accompanied with vague sounds providing an impression of space completely new in her discography. Honeybee Girls is undoubtedly a red-letter in Shannon Wright's career. She conveys a distinct forte for immediate melodies with unparallelled generosity and sensibility through new means.
