Honey Clover Band

Honey Clover Band


Honey Clover Band performs original acoustic songs in a soulful rock, rhythm and blues style. Sultry alto vocals that demand your attention and lyrics that tell stories of life and love, backed by acoustic guitar and afro-latin percussion, mix to bring you a fresh take on the jazz standard.


Honey Clover Band formed in 2006, after a short maternity leave from the music biz, to feature the original songs of Chelsea and Josh Bowman. Chels and I have both been involved in many projects over the years; Abalone Shell, Job's Tears, back up band for Carol Calloway and Ibrahim Samandi. We have played many venues; The Pyramid, The Lion's Den, The Bitter End, CBGB's to name a few. We have been influenced by some varied artists; Bonnie Raitt, The Beatles, Pat Benetar, Dylan(don't think I'm talking about Dylan Thomas, whoever he was)Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Otis Redding, Pink Floyd, and The Beastie Boys. We have had the priviledge of working with many fine musicians, sometimes all at once, like the ten piece gospel band that backed Carol Callaway. This time we decided to keep it simple. We stripped it down to the bare essentials; rhythm and melody, and man are we happy with the results. It's a young lively and fluid blend of roots, rock, rhythm and blues. Chelsea's sultry alto vocals flow seamlessly from pure and crisp to dark and gritty. Pop Sensibility? Naturally, but it's coupled with an unwavering commitment to artistic integrity. We hope you will come see us do what we do and do it soon.

Set List

We have played sets ranging in time from fifteen minutes to three hours. Our typical set is two hours and consists mostly of original material, although we do throw in one or two covers from time to time. We have a large repertoire to choose from but a typical two hour set would be twenty five songs. Here are some of the titles
rare love
silent picture show
if I, when you
wait for me
melt together
quitting time
love me like a man- Bonnie Raitt
lovin' fool
mocking bird
shifty sea
giant step- Taj Mahal
walkin on a wire
break down
sweet and lucky
kick it down the hill
mystic kisses
beating like a drum
to be with you
