Somehow I think this is going to be epic
“Husband and wife singer/songwriter duo Joshua and Amy Anne Krage had been playing music in and around Sacramento for ten years before ever even meeting, let alone playing music together. Filling in for members of the same cover band for a private event in October 2013, their first meeting was their first practice together for their first gig together; their first date was just a few days later, and they've been playing together ever since.
Both members of too many bands to ever be able to list over the years, Amy and Joshua found common ground in versatility. Amy has sung and Josh has played everything from opera to Steely Dan to '90s grunge to folk pop to roadhouse blues to '50s doo-wop to Chaka Khan-approved funk and more. Currently also working together in chameleonic Sacramento pop/funk outfit The Pressure Lounge, they decided to make Love + Honey about the lighter side of the art of music, focusing on positive message and powerful melody in both their original songs and cover material choices.
Equipped with ears for harmonies and hearts for lifting the spirits of whoever's listening, Love + Honey strives to be the brightest spot on the speakers of the collective world.”
