The Honey Ants are Rebecca Hamer and John Grímsey. The duo formed in London, England back in the spring of 2013 and have since built a reputation on the London live circuit for their knock-out shows.
Their unique sound, built around exquisite bittersweet harmonies, has developed from its folk roots into something much more complex and dark – elements of Southern gospel and country blend with London attitude.
To date they've seen support from Music Week, Record of the Day, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, CBC Radio 2 (Canada), WFUV (New York) and Amazing Radio amongst others.
2016 saw them back and forth to Nashville, co-writing with internationally renowned local songwriters. 2017 will see the fruits of these trips in the form of their debut EP, with the Grammy-winning Dom Morley on production duties.
