Honey Noble is a singer-songwriter project headed by pianist and vocalist Katie Jacobson. The group (which also includes Chris Icasiano on drums, Abbey Blackwell on bass, Gregg Belisle-Chi on guitar and Ivan Arteaga on clarinet) labels their music as "eccentric improvisitory folk," blending Jacobson's background as a jazz vocalist with her interest in storytelling and lyric writing. Jacobson's quiet melodies and clear vocals accentuate the poetic quality of her contemplative and honest lyrics, bringing the listener images of sweet coriander, flowers in a woman's hair, the black smoke of fire, and a dark starlit night spent on the sea. The songs are stories of memories we wish we had, dreams that haunt our waking lives, and a conflicted life that marries joy and pain almost indistinguishably. [+]
