Biography

Honeyville Music recording artist Duncan May and the Resonators play a raw, soulful energy driven Rock with funky Americana overtones. The eclectic yet somewhat "pop" music is hard to put in a box because it IS original and it IS something fresh. The new album has a blend of tempos, flavors and dynamics for folks who love quality music.
Duncan's lyrics are poetic but to the point, personal but universal in their emotion.
These charged vocals and exciting lyrics brings out the progressive side of this sometimes aggressive ("Swamp Rock"), sometimes mellow ("Polished Folk-Pop") music.
Duncan May has been "fronting" bands for over ten years on guitar and bass and has written hundreds of songs. Scott Hall has a masters degree in guitar and spent years with a Murfreesboro giant of a band called SIGNAL. He joined the band last year and his incredible talent has taken the music to new heights. Tony Richardson commands the low end with his signiture style and used to play with The Rainfellas before becoming a staple in the lineup. Curt Redding has amazed crowds on the drums for years with the likes of legendary Johnny Neel and Mile8 and has just recently joined the band to complete the sound.

The live shows often step outside the box to explore the freshness of reggae, jazz and the occasional heavy hitting, head spinning club closer. Tempting the sounds of several genres and communicating the undeniable passion and experience of living is what Duncan May and the Resonators is about.

"...Duncan May has just enough twang to get some folks calling him Americana, but his bread and butter is blues-influeced funk rock that should get any Widespread Panic fan doing the hippie wiggle." - Nashville Scene

“Recently called an "Americana Rocker" in reviews, the unique style that Duncan and the band play is raw, soulful energy driven Americana Rock with funky pop overtones. The emotionally charged vocals and exciting lyrics brings out the progressive side of this sometimes aggressive ("Swamp Rock"), sometimes mellow (“Polished Folk-Pop”) music.” – Nashville Rage, 2007
