About Honey

ARTIST ~ ACTIVIST ~ PROTEGÉ ~ VOCAL PRODUCER

Revolutionary and charismatic soul singer, Honey Larochelle is a true iconoclast who dances elegantly between genres and stands behind her motto “authenticity before conformity.”

In addition to touring as The Brand New Heavies’ lead singer on multiple international tours, Honey has performed and collaborated with a multitude of artists including Grammy-winning duo A Great Big World, Oscar-winning artist Jennifer Hudson, household names such as Lorde, Joss Stone, Marcus Miller, Dr. John, UK soul legend, Omar, and eventually took on the title Roberta Flack protégé.

A prolific songwriter and vocal producer, Honey has worked on recordings with everyone from Macy Gray and Allen Stone to Donny Osmond. GRAMMY award winning duo,  A Great Big World, released their hit single “Already Home,” co-written by Larochelle, on Epic records. 

In her own artistry, Honey has been able to share her original music across the world. After releasing her first album, a classic soul adventure entitled, The Yes Feeling, she released an EDM inspired EP, Hijack.  Her most recent release is a reggae soul project called 11:11.

 

For this album, Honey blended her soulful melodies and harmonies with Danish super producer, Pharfar’s, reggae dancehall production sensibilities to create a group of feel-good songs that tell soothing stories in a genre she’s affectionately coined “Irie Soul.”

 

Pharfar and Honey met in Copenhagen, instantly connected, and recorded 11 songs in 11 days. From there, they travelled back and forth between Denmark and Los Angeles over the course of five years to complete this body of work. Currently, Honey tours globally performing her original works, teaching "Indie Artist Success" workshops, and featuring as a special guest with musical legends.  All the while she continues writing and recording new material.

 

Her latest venture is one of activism. After learning that hundreds of millions of plastic straws are dumped in the ocean daily, and witnessing first hand the effects of our societies disastruous single use plastic habits while on the road, she, with her business partners help, started the eco forward, desinger glass straw company, SeaSavers.Co.

“[Our straws] are each a work of art that can help save the world. We truly believe in functional art and raising awareness to create new habits. The road toward a plastic-free future is long and requires commitment, so we are making that journey sexy. We are more than just entertainers. We have a responsibility to increase our fans's level of "woke."  We designed a product that lets you #SipinStyle while saving the world. We're very proud of our work and we're really looking forward to seeing them being used around the globe as human habits begin to change and human consciousness begins to increase. It a really worthwhile conversation”  says Honey.
