Flies with Honey was a philosophy before it was a band.
An English proverb tells us that ‘you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar,’ and singer/songwriter Jon Stinnett took the old adage to heart. Stinnett crafted tunes with Cottage Grove, Oregon-based outfit Anticipate Pie for three years, but the Pie’s eventual split would lead him in an even sweeter direction, and friends Jonathan Behr, Joe Cole and Leigh Sabo now fill out a lean, powerful rock outfit.
Born of upstairs jam sessions that shook the foundations of historic buildings on a classic Main Street, Flies with Honey combines rock impact, power and depth with the finesse, grooves and tunesmanship of rhythm and blues, with a healthy dose of country rock to bring it all back downhome.
