PROJECT: Nicotine's Famous Honey - AN OPEN LETTER
The soulful, funky and raw (like honey) EP of the year is here brought to you by Nicotine's Famous Honey!
Soulful Noise, the show had us SHOOK; An Open Letter has us complete.
The seven track project exemplifies the abilities of Nicotine, as well as Herrick and Hooley, as artists and attributes to the independent arts culture. It's refreshing and funky, just what we needed in an era of trap and trendy rap.
Nicotine is a singer/song writer from Houston, TX - now based out of Brooklyn, NY. Her sound is a mixture of Funk, R&B, Soul, and early 2000's Hip Hop. She is backed by 2/3 of @herrickandhooley, Ian Olney & Hunter Lewis. Together they make "Nicotine's Famous Honey".
All tracks are produced by Herrick & Hooley unless noted otherwise.
The project opens up with an attention grabbing poem that snatches the pride from an undeserving past lover, then gets our hips swinging because we are just Tired ft. Ian Olney, followed by a soul breaking free in I know why the Caged Bird Sings. Bantu Knots and Boudain get us on our feet in a good mood, then Running puts us into a dreamy trance.
We can't wait to hear new work already!
Please share you're thoughts on this project and show Nicotine's Famous Honey mad love, they are going to shift the music scene!
