Honey Boulton is a jazz guitarist, banjo player and composer, specialising in swing and bebop music.
An inspiring and uplifting performer throughout his compositions, Honey aims to capture the fire and spirit of the great African American art form, and apply it to the context of living and performing in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, while paying due respect to the tradition. His influences are made up of a long list of composers/artists, including Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery, Toshiko Akiyoshi etc.
Honey’s music simply makes us Feel Good.
For his debut appearance at Twickenham Jazz Club Honey Boulton will be present a set of original music featured on his three previously released and highly acclaimed albums ‘Honey, ‘Portrait’, and ‘Les Charmants’, as well as a collection of unreleased compositions written specially for his quartet comprised of Fraser Urquart on piano, Lorenzo Morabito on bass and Will Cleasby on drums. The quartet brings the fire and energy of a large ensemble to the personal connection and spontaneity of a tight knit quartet.
