Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears

Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears

Under 21 with Guardian

Melding together the sounds of gospel, funk, soul, blues, and garage-rock, Black Joe Lewis is a showman through and through.

NPR once exclaimed "James Brown hasn't been reincarnated, but Black Joe Lewis sure does follow in his footsteps." Melding together the sounds of gospel, funk, soul, blues, and garage-rock, Black Joe Lewis is a showman through and through. He has graced the stages of the some of the worlds premiere festivals from Lollapalooza to Bumbershoot and everything in between.

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears return with their most subversive record to date: an exploration of the sordid trappings of ego, isolation, consumption, waste, and war. Sonically inspired by the Hill Country blues, cowpunk, and the southern soul of Stax, this album charts new territory with a heavy stream of lyrical consciousness. This is The Difference Between Me & You.

Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears return with their most subversive record to date: an exploration of the sordid trappings of ego, isolation, consumption, waste, and war. Sonically inspired by the Hill Country blues, cowpunk, and the southern soul of Stax, this album charts new territory with a heavy stream of lyrical consciousness. This is The Difference Between Me & You.

The Difference is influenced by Lewis’ first decade on the road, embodying a deep repertoire of sounds and drawing from: the heavy grooves of Albert King, the punked-up blues of R.L. Burnside, the storytelling of Bobby “Blue” Bland, and the soulfully layered horns of the Stones. No one’s sound holds more weight than the next; all are all omnipresent throughout.

The Difference Between Me & You is the band’s fifth studio album. And while it’s an approach that might veer slightly from the typical sounds those who’ve followed the band are used to hearing, it was a conscious step in a new direction for Lewis. When asked, Lewis says he wanted to “make a more complex and reflective record” than he had before.
