Austin, TX. – The group Stonehoney has been fine-tuning their live performances, touring relentlessly and giving Austin, TX another band to evidence why their adopted city is the live music capital of the world. Stonehoney's debut album The Cedar Creek Sessions captures the "in the moment" energy of their live shows by being cut entirely live in the studio. Set for release on July 6th on Austin-based Music Road Records, The Cedar Creek Sessions captures the vulnerable vocals and smart, insightful lyrics of this four front-man band.
Comprised of veteran songwriters and musicians Shawn Davis, Phil Hurley, David Phenicie and Nick Randolph, the group met at a songwriters-in-the-round soon realized their musical rapport and personal chemistry made for a rare yet remarkable unison. Stonehoney's seamless vocal harmonies embody their collaborative spirit, allowing for striking lead arrangements, powerfully delivered from each band member, creating and performance of their own blend of Americana, rock and folk.
This cooperative balance of Stonehoney is captured on The Cedar Creek Sessions. The record is a long time coming for the group, who have maintained a heavy touring schedule and performed at venues and festivals across the country. The album was tracked live at its namesake, Cedar Creek Recording in Texas, and guest musicians include Earl "Poole" Ball (Johnny Cash) and Ken Coomer (formally of Wilco). Shawn Davis says, "For me, it's all about this band and the songs. For four songwriters and front men to come together and shed as much ego as possible to be part of something, instead of it all being about an individual, says it all for me and for us as a team."
The songs on The Cedar Creek Sessions are deeply personal and reflect each band member's exceptional ability to craft By drawing on four life experiences, this album is a collective tale the intimacies of heartbreak, exploration, strength and happiness, painting a portrait into melodic arrangements to which anyone can relate. Phil Hurley says, "One of my favorite aspects of this band is that everyone seems to feel invited in by our music, from pre-schoolers to senior citizens. It's like there's something for everyone."

The power that comes from the quadruple lead singer assault of Stonehoney is a force of nature. The beauty of the music is rivaled only by the genuine personalities of the guys: great playing, great singing, great songs, great people!

"Rarely, if ever, will you see a band that showcases this many talented songwriters in one place. Stonehoney songs have such a long shelf life, that months later your car stereo will break down and beg you to remove the CD."
