Honey Ryder + Dexeter
HONEY RYDER ‘bridges the gap’ between Folk and Rock into a Nashville-inspired fusion that’s won them fans and high-profile supporters worldwide.
Formed originally by former MTV employee Lindsay and session guitarist Martyn, the HONEY RYDER mix of Folk style pop rock, with Country influences, impressed producers and executives alike – former EMI boss Eric Nicoli liked the band so much he invested in them…
HONEY RYDER won thousands fans across the UK when supporting Michael Bolton and Will Young on tour, and tracks from their debut album, ‘Rising up’ were play-listed on Radio 2.
With TV appearances and live gigs under their belts, the act expanded to a trio and escaped to Thailand for two months to write their second album “Marley’s Chains”. After a Radio interview with Sir Terry Wogan, he described the band as “Mean, moody and magnificent”. Richard Madeley on Radio 2 was also impressed, saying the band had “Overtones of Fleetwood Mac”.
The title track “Marley’s Chains” was also used in an episode of the US TV crime drama “Body of Proof”. In the UK the album release was supported with live TV appearances on ITV This Morning, Channel 5 Live with Myleene Klass, and an interview and video premiere on BBC Breakfast.
The quotes below say it all:

“Marley’s Chains is a sumptuous pop album with it’s feet in folk & country that sounds both classic & contemporary and fits to the current trend for a return to real music.” – Lisa Verrico, Sunday Times
HONEY RYDER headed to Nashville to record their new 3rd album, ‘HONEY RYDER – Born in a bottle’ with some of the top session musicians in Nashville: Stevie Nicks’ bass player, Neil Young’s drummer & Keith Urban’s guitarist.
The album was then finished in the UK with their producer Jon O’Mahony., together with executive production help from the legendary producer Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum). Finally mixed & mastered in USA the album was ‘Born in a bottle.’
