Recap - San Francisco Sound Checks with HONNE

Sarah Lanning, GRAMMY U SF Chapter Representative

On Monday April 10, 2017, GRAMMY U members from the San Francisco Chapter had the great opportunity to listen in on the sound check from HONNE before their sold-out show at The Regency Ballroom. GRAMMY U members got an in depth look at what it’s like to be in a touring band, how they developed their unique sound, and their experiences in the industry overall.

After meeting at University, band members James Hatcher and Andy Clutterbuck began recording music together. They shared that their debut album Warm On A Cold Night was inspired by their recording late into the night after spending their days in class.

From England originally, HONNE shared that the crowds of shows in the United States are a lot of fun to perform for and the fans here are not as shy to dance. It was interesting for GRAMMY U students to hear the difference in crowds from the United States from a fan standpoint.

Their ultimate goal was to always tour with a live band, and GRAMMY U students were also able to meet all of the touring members.

Thanks to HONNE for leaving a lasting impression on the members of the San Francisco GRAMMY U Chapter!
