Having firmly established themselves within the inner circle of Nashville’s elite, UK band Honey Ryder return to spearhead the British country crossover invasion with their 3rd studio album, ‘Born In A Bottle’.
Featuring co-writes with Tom Douglas [Lady Antebellum ‘I Run To You’], Rivers Rutherford [Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brad Paisley] and Blair Daly [Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban], the trio headed back to Ocean Way Nashville for the bulk of the recording, and were mentored by legendary producer Paul Worley [Lady Antebellum, Dixie Chicks].
‘Drink With Me’ is the first single from the album. “We wanted to write a summery feel good song about hanging out with friends and partying, inspired by the bright lights of Downtown Nashville”, explains lead singer Lindsay O’Mahony. “We had just come back to our hotel after a fantastic night at a bar called Pucketts, where we feasted on deep fried green beans and drank beer out of jam jars, and felt inspired to write, so we started jamming and within a few hours the song was pretty much finished. We then recorded it a few days later over at Ocean Way”. The single will be released in time for St Patrick’s Day.
The new album follows on from the success of 2nd album Marley’s Chains, which spawned several Radio 2 playlists as well as being Album Of The Week across the Smooth Radio Network and Music Week, and TV appearances and performances on BBC Breakfast, ITV This Morning, and C5 Live with Myleene Klass. Lead track Marley’s Chains was synced in the hit ABC series Body Of Proof. Internationally, the album received strong support in Canada, Holland, and most recently Denmark.
Honey Ryder kick off a busy festival season of touring with two performances at C2C at the O2, followed by the Isle Of Wight and other UK festivals, with several Scandinavian dates to follow. A Bob Harris Radio 2 session has already been confirmed, stay tuned…
