From North Carolina, the songs of Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters blend the band’s old-school country roots attitude with their shared influences of rock and folk.  Performing along with Amanda Anne, The Honeycutters are Matt Smith on pedal steel and Stratocaster, Rick Cooper on bass, Josh Milligan on drums and harmony vocals, and Evan Martin on keys and Telecaster.


Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters is the group’s third release on Organic Records, and fifth album.  Its thirteen tracks were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Scott Barnett at Crossroads Studios in Arden, NC.  Amanda says of the album, “I think it’s just about life and all that that entails. Including but not limited to death, strangers, birthdays, money, leaving, arriving, seasons, corruption, and love.”

The wonderfully talented multi-instrumentalist Gwenifer Raymond will open the show.  Her album "You Were Never Much Of A Dancer" has just reached #7 in UK Americana chart (at the time of writing) and has been reviewed by The Guardian as an "immersive debut" and they've given the "roiling, rhythmic traditional sound" 4 stars.

Tia McGraff is an internationally renowned and award-winning singer-songwriter from Port Dover, ON, Canada. With Scottish and Transylvanian roots running through her songwriting and voice, Tia’s talent has been described as “haunting and soul-gripping.” 

With seven album releases, four videos on CMT Canada, various film/television placements, and numerous nominations and awards - including Americana album of the year first ballot nomination for 2016 Grammy Awards - have earned Tia a respect in the music industry and a global fanbase that continues to stretch beyond demographics. 

Tia’s latest release, ’ Stubborn In My Blood’ was released in August 2018, and immediately impressed Americana and Country radio programmers in the USA, Canada and Europe, resulting in significant activity on various airplay charts. 

Tommy, who moved to Nashville, TN in 1998 with a staff songwriter deal in hand, and soon became one of Music Row’s sought after hit writers, is credited with cuts by major label artists, including Lee Greenwood, and film placements in movies starring Ashley Judd, among others. 

After moving to Music City in 1999, Tia was introduced to Tommy by his publisher. They began writing together, broke their rule of “never date a co-writer,” and in 2006 the couple were married in Savannah, Georgia. In true Tia and Tommy fashion, they celebrated their wedding by performing a concert for their friends and fans. Their love and passion for each other, their music and their fans, continues to grow, win hearts, and make them one of Americana music’s favorite sweethearts. In recent years the duo have supported and shared stages with artists including Steve Earle, Joan Baez, Randy Bachman (BTO, Guess Who), and Steve Balsamo, among others. 

Tia is also gifted author, Tia’s children’s book, “Jake The Road Dawg” has helped raise funds and awareness for her local chapter of The Dolly Parton Imagination Library. 2016 was a standout year for Tia & Tommy, with a sold out show at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, wide acclaim for ‘Crazy Beautiful’ and international radio play for her music including Bob Harris Country on BBC Radio 2. 

The pair returned to the UK in May 2017 for a fifteen-date national tour and return again in September 2018.

Danny Wilson (Danny and the Champions of the World, Grand Drive) and Robin Bennett (The Dreaming Spires, Goldrush, Saint Etienne) joined forces with Tony Poole (Starry Eyed and Laughing), producer extraordinaire and king of the electric twelve-string Rickenbacker, their voices, guitars, and songwriting combining to marvellous effect in a collection of songs that began as uplifting acoustic music and grew into something far more wide-ranging and transcendent.


Pulling on influences from the 60s pop of The Byrds, The Beatles and The Beach Boys, through to the harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, with dashes of Petty and Springsteen thrown in for good measure, perhaps the most remarkable thing is that what shines through all of this is the quality and originality of the songwriting.


Bennett Wilson Poole are our pick for American Music Association UK’s ‘UK artist of the year' and 'UK album of the year’.
