Stoneface Honey


We lost the young, hilarious, say-it-like-it-is, incredibly musical bass playing/singer, Ben Rougeou last night. He was surrounded by family and friends and passed away just before we went on stage at The Buffalo Gap. But I was happy to see that they still had one of our posters on the ceiling so I could point him out as we dedicated Shoes to Fill to him. Although that was the only song on our album in which his bass part was recorded, Ben's ideas and creativity played a strong role on the entire album. Ben's life was short but full of music, laughter and gentle kindness. We will miss you, Ben! Here are some of our favorite pictures with him.

Happy New Year from Stoneface Honey!

We hope you all had a great New Year's Eve. We celebrated together by recording a cover of This is the New Year by Ian Alex and Chad King of A Great Big World. This was the first night that we all sang the song together and by the time we popped our champagne and readied the selfie stick, we had 40 minutes before the end of 2016. 


Now that we've released our 2016 album, Long Time Waiting, we're preparing to release the single, Help Me, later this month. You can hear it live at one of our shows and watch for the announcement at our LIVE Friday show with KPSU on January 27th. 

January 21, 9pm: Stoneface Honey in the Attic at The Buffalo Gap
January 22, 2pm: Angie & Kate will play a few songs at the Benefit Concert featuring Michael Allen Harrison
January 27, 5pm: LIVE Friday broadcast at KPSU

May you all have a wonderful 2017! 

With musical love,
Kate H, Kate A, Angie K, Shirley J, Dan J

One of my friends uses T minus all the time and I decided to do some research before I shouted out something ridiculous online. My favorite definition came from urban dictionary
You can get updates on our Facebook Event Page.
The phrase is an exclamation marking the event that the user needs to take a massive dump, often one that is minutes or even less to where shit hits the fan, quite aptly.

It's origin stems from the "T minus ____ seconds/minutes/hours etc.." announced for important events, such as New Year's ball dropping, bombs going off, or in this case a shit-storm.

When T Minus is yelled, followed by a time for more accuracy, it is imperative to get him/her to the nearest restroom or else all hell will break loose, or just their bowels perhaps.
John: "Shiiiiiit, T Minus! That Chipotle definitely ain't sittin' well." 
Frank: "DRIVE FASTER MATT! We can make it to that 7-11's bathroom in time!" 
Matt: "Man, they're gonna need a new toilet soon." 
John: "I... can't breathe.. Frank.. if I don't make it, tell my family how I died.." 
Matt: "You're gonna be OK! Stay with us!"

Whenever possible, the voices of Stoneface Honey get together to hone in on harmonies. Last night, Kate A. hosted and I brought my brand new, ridiculously adorable puppy, Arthur. He is an 8 week old 1/2 Pyrenees, 1/2 Anatolian who will soon grow larger than our beautiful Sophie. Arthur the cutest puppy ever meets his new older sister, Sophie.

So here's our attempt to record a video while looking out upon a beautiful view and an adorable puppy doing things like falling asleep with his head on the edge of his water bowl. 


Kate Harris, Angie Kopshy and Kate Austin covering Royals by Lorde.

For those of you who've had a chance to see us live, you may have noticed some extra talent on stage. We would like to formally introduce you to the new faces of Stoneface Honey.
