Brooklyn based folk-soul trio, Holy Hive, does it again with their cover of Honeybus’ single ‘Be Thou By My Side’. Holy Hive is releasing the new album ‘Float Back to You’ on May 29th.
Joe Harrison, Homer Steinweiss and Paul Spring make up this unique and delightful amalgam of talent, and with each song they urge our ears to lean forward and listen intently and in depth.
The album follows a string of well-received live shows, singles, and band’s critically acclaimed ‘Harping’ EP and features 10 originals, a cover of ‘Be Thou By My Side’ (originally by 60’s UK pop group Honeybus), plus a re-working of Irish folk tune ‘Red is the Rose’.
The album was produced by Homer and features guest musicians throughout including harpist Mary Lattimore, Leon Michels (El Michels Affair) on sax and keys, Shannon Wise (The Shacks) on backing vocals, Dave Guy (The Roots) on trumpet, Nick Movshon on bass, and Paul Spring’s wife Sophia Heymans on piano.
Enjoy this beautiful rendition by Holy Hive.
