Honeyboy Carencro

Honeyboy Carencro grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, and vividly remembers, as a child, hanging out with his mother and listening to records on her old school home stereo where she would play artists that were heavy on the scene. She played that were rich in blues, soul and jazz history. “Most of the best music ever made came out of New Orleans,” claims the singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, who counts Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry, along with New Orleans music pioneers like: The Meters, Fats Domino, Eddie Bo, Snooks Eaglin and Dr. John among his influences, but draws the most inspiration from the music of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, and the legendary productions that were coming out of the Chess Records era and Stax Records era.

The “retro or throwback” tag is added to almost any contemporary work that sounds like it was originally recorded between 1950 and 1974, and Carencro, is among the new breed of artists to the genre, and he is aware of how trends come and go. After being signed to the upstart New Orleans based record label Rolling Fork Records by a&r rep Corbiss Humberger, the wheels were set in motion for him to record his upcoming album "The Widowmaker"." I have always been into doing music form the heart and I am giving you all I got with this album." says Carencro.

Honeyboy has produced and played instruments for much of his life, but never intended to be so moved by blues and soul music the way he is. He isn’t formally trained, and never sang in the church choir but has been the lead singer in many rock, ska and reggae bands. But here he is, new school soul sensation, who has taken the Chess and Stax assembly-line production model and eliminated nearly every element but himself and his band. “I think Honeyboy has a bright future in the music business, he is an amazing songwriter and guitarist as well." says Corbiss Humberger, "Sometimes diamonds and gifts from the higher being just fall into your lap and Honeyboy Carencro is definitely a gift from above!"

And for those willing to believe anything and everything can and will happen, be grateful to have Honeyboy Carencro on the scene and at your service. It’s not just throwback music anymore – this mission is all about moving forward by paying homage to the past. Only in the now and he is HERE!!!
