Calling all Stoneface Honey fans!  

New music alert! Star March 15th in your calendars! Our newest release, Never Giving Up, is both the title track and our song for a cause. This song was written by Angie to support Portland's Shriners Hospital. Our release date is also the day that Angie's mom, Holly, is installed as Queen of the Portland-Wilsonville chapter of Daughters of the Nile. Not only does this passionate group of women volunteer at birthday and sewing parties at the hospital, but spend the entire year raising money through a variety of projects. Their 2019 financial contribution was $25,890.70. Stoneface Honey is hoping to help double that contribution this year.  

If you buy our song online through iTunes, Amazon or any of the usual platforms, all of the proceeds go to this cause. If you purchase the entire album, 70% of those proceeds go to the cause. So, we need your help! On March 15th, when we release the album, please help us spread the word! All those $0.99 purchases can really add up. 


More exciting news, we recently recorded two covers that will appear on the album (and released one on YouTube; check out Revolving Door). Not only that, today we heard the first edit of the new version of our song, Breathing. THIS is the song that originally brought the "Angie & Kate duo" together and we cannot wait to share our 2020 version! We're also adding the 7 songs from our 2018 project, Resolved to the Mutual Satisfaction of Both Parties.

The story of Snow 

Snow is one of the songs Kate and I performed earlier this month. We weren't planning to perform the song, but one of the audience members requested it. I wrote this song (literally dreamt this song with a full CSI episode, which NEVER happens) when I was in the middle of a research paper for a psychology class on Personality Disorders. I had completely enmeshed myself in anything related to The Bosnian War that stretched from 1992 and 1995. I'd read articles and books and watched In the Land of Blood and…

Happy Holidays! Let the Christmas songs begin... 

So Angie Kopshy completed her move to Montana, but the transition of Stoneface Honey is still being perfected. Kate & Angie had the chance to perform a few songs together earlier this month and we look forward to sharing little snippets as we head into Christmas. Meanwhile, here's Angie's favorite arrangements of Children Go Where I Send Thee/Go Tell it on the Mountain. 

A sneak peek at The Green Grass of Heaven 

Once upon time…

in the year 2015, Princess Sophie was tending to a plant in her family's lush garden. She heard gentle footsteps approaching and looked up to see her mother’s silhouette against the bright midday sun.      

“Arise, my daughter,” the queen commanded as she stretched out her hands. “I have news from the West.” Sophie stood and held tightly to her mother’s hands as a cool breeze blew the blond ringlets away from the queen’s intense blue eyes. “You will leave tomorrow for the land of…

My Land 

I just returned from a road trip to Colorado with my business partner, Kate. We were there for our annual regional music therapy conference where we decided upon our next round of brilliant music therapy interns, I presented on reimbursement and was the humble recipient of an awesome award from the Western Region of the American Music Therapy Association. We traveled through many, many beautiful states, but were elated to return to the beautiful state of Oregon.

In the same way in which we are pioneers of…

Our favorites of Ben 

We lost the young, hilarious, say-it-like-it-is, incredibly musical bass player/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…

Happy New Year from Stoneface Honey 

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…

T minus 3 

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 dictionaryMeanwhile, T minus 3 until our CD Release at The Secret Society You can get updates on our Facebook Event Page. T Minus 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… Read more

Chemo Session #2

I didn't sleep well last night. I was too anxious about another chemo session, but we're halfway through Phase 1 of Chemo. Then Phase 2 is 12 weeks. Then surgery. Then radiation and resume chemo until about May 2023.

My hair started falling out yesterday - 14 days after my first chemo session.

I have not vomited. I have 2 different anti-nausea prescriptions just in case. I still have working tastebuds. 

I'm fatigued and heavy like gravity is smashing me into the couch. 

I'm grateful for friends, family, nature, music, animals and RSO.
