Get a mash of blues, garage rock, and punk from Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears on standard black vinyl.
Black Joe Lewis & the Honey Bears are a rowdy blues-rock band that formed in Austin, Texas back in 2007. Led by, you guessed it, Joe Lewis, their sound meets at the well-visited intersection of blues-y garage rock, soul and funk. Joe started playing guitar while working at a pawn shop in Tucson, Arizona, and from there became the skillful shredder that he is today.
These guys are SXSW vets at this point and continue releasing powerful, party-ready albums, all with a similar “I-don’t-care-I-just-wanna-dance” attitude to them. If you haven’t yet listened to Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, their 2017 album Backlash showcases their essence in 11 songs of hip-swinging, head-bangin’ glory.
