Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears
8:00pm , March 14, 2020 | WAVE
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 Bob by “Blue” Bland, and the soulfully layered horns of the Stones.
