Holy Moly!  We are SUPER excited to announce that The Bootleg Honeys are one of five recipients of Creative Sonoma’s Next Level Grant!  This grant includes $2500 towards a specified project as well as 10 hours consultation with industry professionals.  This is such an awesome opportunity for us to grow and learn, and we are beyond thankful for the chance to take our project to the “next level” 🙂

With the funds from the Next Level Grant we will be able to update all of our promotional materials (pictures, website, press kit etc) AND to record a new single to showcase our new band!  Last year we recorded our debut album, Paint it Red, over four days at our drummer Mark Tarlton’s studio in Rhonert Park.  It was an amazing experience and definitely a bit of a whirlwind!  We are really looking forward to approaching this recording process with an expanded timeline and budget, which will allow for much more experimentation and creativity!  Once we are finished with the single we will hold a release party TBA.  So stay tuned!!

Fellow grant recipients include these great up and coming Sonoma County artists:  The Easy Leaves, Black Sheep Brass Band, Ismay, and Shuan Hunter.  Be sure to follow Creative Sonoma and Next Level to keep up with all the cool stuff they are doing to support the art in our community.

We look forward to sharing updates on this process as we go along and can’t wait to see what the next chapter of the Bootleg Honey story looks (and sounds) like!
