Amanda Anne Platt of the Honeycutters
Feb 5, 2016
Stuarts welcomes Amanda Anne Platt of The Honeycutters back to Nelsonville for a special solo backstage show. Amanda Anne Platt has been described as -easily one of the best songwriters coming out of Western North Carolina these days- (Martin Anderson, WNCW), with a voice that -sings like Carolina farmlands after a rainstorm- (Harvey Robinson, Monkeywhale Productions).
She is the songwriter, lead singer, and producer of the Asheville-based Americana group The Honeycutters. No Depression says -Platts songs are exceptional, with interesting melodies and well-written lyrics sung with a strong and engaging voice that sounds a bit like a blend of Gillian Welch and Loretta Lynn.- With The Honeycutters she has shared the stage with Guy Clark, Amy Ray, Tony Rice, The Seldom Scene, Donna The Buffalo, Jill Andrews, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Jim Lauderdale, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Langhorne Slim.
Her song -Little Bird- won First Place in The Great Lakes Songwriting Competition (2011) and Second Place in the General category in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest (2011). The Honeycutters third studio album, Me Oh My (Organic Records), which features -Little Bird- as well as thirteen other of Platts original compositions; has received critical acclaim and radio support across the United States, Canada, and The UK.
