CHRISTA JOY AND THE HONEYBEES
Christa Joy and the Honeybees is a five piece band-acoustic guitar, lead electric guitar, electric bass, pedal steel, and full kit drum.
Christa Joy's third full-length album, "Get On, Heart!" (June, 2019) serves up twangy Americana with songs ranging from classic honk-tonk to gospel-tinged country ballads. Highlighted by No Depression's "Crowdfunding Campaigns of the Week," the album was recorded live in the studio with Uncanny Audio (the fabulous Grant Wicks) in Easthampton, MA, after a successful kickstarter campaign. Released to a sold out Parlor Room in Northampton, MA, this collection of songs has been met with growing enthusiasm. Most notably played on Signature Sounds Jim Olsen's "The Back Porch" radio show, Jim Neill's Jukebox, Texas Highway Radio Show, Blue Moon Kentucky, Keepin' It True Country, Nine Volt Heart, Vizaural Music, Country Routes News, and others. Christa has recently been featured in Boston's Metronome Magazine, The Music Below, and her own local Hampshire Gazette.
