Taste of Honey House Concert Tour
Official Launch - October 13th at Kingston Road United Church, Toronto
"Heartwarming and real" (T. Barr, Simple Moments, Lunenberg) is what you always get from gifted vocal artist and musician Abby Zotz, but this brand new solo CD Local Honey takes her soulful melodic folk-pop sound to soaring heights. And there's no better place celebrate than the acoustically and historically rich space of Kingston Road United Church in Toronto's east end. Abby will be joined onstage by her Honey of a Band, including Joel Saunders (bass), Chris Saunders (guitars and use), Bryden Chernoff (drums), Anna Marie Therrien and Anne Gingras (vocals).
Recorded and produced by Steve Sherman at his studio just down the road from the launch location, Local Honey is a collection of originals (many co-written with Abby's former Two Roads Home partner, Bryan Williston) and one beloved cover. It's a satisfying union of wistful pop blended with folk, blues, jazz and gospel and delivered by an experienced artisan, in a voice that's authentic and pure, with a time-won edge that adds honesty and depth to every song.
Join Abby, her Honey of a Band, and special guests Steve Sherman, Chris Rawlings and members of Shout Sister Choir -the event will also feature work by local artist Peter Finney (also the art director for Local Honey) and jars of the golden nectar itself - for a beautiful evening that honours the artisanal spirit, with songs of mature love, human-to-human inspiration and the stories we create when we refuse to give up hope.

Interested in hosting a house concert and being part of the sweetness?
House Concerts are gaining tremendous momentum in North America and are an excellent way to enjoy an intimate afternoon or evening of live music performed by one of your favourite singer-songwriters—that would be me, just to be clear—in the comfort of your home. Part of a time-honoured tradition of sharing music and community, they offer a perfect excuse to host a unique event for friends, family or, if you’re the avant-garde type, complete strangers.
Here’s how it works. I bring along one or two of my better-behaved musician friends and we set up, unplugged, in your living room or wherever you can fit about 20 bums—or more—in seats. You supply the bums and seats—we’ll supply the music. We’ll play songs from my new album, Local Honey, as well as familiar covers, all wrapped up in a theme of gratitude, friendship and fun.
