A sticky, sweaty, soul-drenched rock and roll band from Toronto, Canada.
In three years since their inception, The Honeyrunners have released two EPs, a series of live session films, 200+ tour dates, radio play for singles across North America and a string of appearances on national television. The shows, built on folk harmonies and a motown-esque rhythm section, earned the band a devoted following in Canada and comparisons to heavyweights like Alabama Shakes, The Black Crowes and Blind Melon. Adopted by the college crowd, the band appears regularly at university stages, breweries and festivals across Canada. They have shared the stage with U.S.S., The Balconies, King Khan, Head of the Herd and countless others.

“Wow. Cool!! Love it.” – Laurie Brown, Host of CBC Radio 2 “The Signal”
“All-in-all, it can be said that this EP is, by far, one of the most impressive records that I’ve heard from an up-and-coming rock group, and future projects from this gifted quartet is highly anticipated. If you’re a fan of soulful, groovy rock ‘n’ roll, EP 2 is an absolute must-have.” ‘Brandon Schiafone, Niji Magazine
“An infectious mixture of Motown, neo-punk, soul, rhythm and blues. Recorded live off the floor, they display talents of vibrant harmonies and soulful hooks with foot stompin’ gritâ€¦This quartet is super tight, you can feel how committed they are to owning their sound.” ‘The Deli Magazine
