HONEY RIVER, the Americana roots-rock trio, today (8/8), have released the music video for “Peace, Love.” The song marks the group’s lead single from their upcoming full-length I MISS AMERICA album which captures the nostalgia of mid-century America.

“Peace, Love”–which goes to radio August 20–follows the album’s heartfelt theme of reflecting on the American childhood band founder JoeySykesexperienced. “For me, this song is a reflection of being a kid. I started playing guitar around age eight and embracing the simple feelings and sentiments of living.“
HONEY RIVER was formed in 2017 by singer, songwriter, guitarist Sykes and inspired by his many years of Nashville writing trips, love for such country-rock legends like the Eagles, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, and more recently, Keith Urban and Little Big Town. Sykes brought on Jay Mags(vocals, bass, guitar)and Chris Vincent(guitars, vocals, dobro, mandolin) to round out the vision for HONEY RIVER. “The idea of HONEY RIVER from day-one was to have three guys who can all sing, write, play different instruments and who will share lead vocals during the set,” notes Sykes. “It’s kind of a modern-day Eagles/Tom Petty/CSNY fusion. There will also be plenty of harmony during the verses. I love lyrics, harmonies, melodies, and cool stringed instruments.”
