Bio

In this era full of over saturated, manufactured artists, a refreshing new talent, emerges – Honore’ (honor-ray).

This songwriter/singer/producer, originally from Altadena, California has spent the majority of his life cultivating and honing his craft. Hailing from ethnic descents of Filipino, African American, and White, Honore’ reflects the same diversity in his universal style. A singer who puts on a great show, whether he's performing on stage solo, live with his band, or moving fans with dance choreography, his originality and professionalism separates him from other artists.

Even at an early age Honore’ seemed destined to be in music. Singing and performing in front of family and friends, he often imitated his musical heroes Prince and Michael Jackson. In school Honore’ found himself immersed in music and intrigued by poetry. He wrote many works (especially to girls he liked) and realized that his poems could be easily transformed into song form.

In the mid-90’s, Honore’ was a member of many singing groups (in the style of Boyz II Men), touring and doing club dates. Being the primary writer for these groups helped Honore’ gain experience musically, but pursuing the dream of getting a record deal was a lot harder than he had imagined.
Due to personality conflicts and creative struggles, the group idea came to a screeching halt. In 1999, Honore’ decided to pursue a solo career, once again concentrating on what he calls his strongest skill - songwriting.

Honore’ captured the attention of many top producers in the industry. He was finally introduced to producer Mike Cee from the Arkiteks - (has produced for Babyface, Janet Jackson, Blackstreet, etc). Mike Cee gave Honore the freedom to experiment in the studio. From this, Honore’ mastered his own technique of vocal style as well as learning the art of arranging his songs.

Honore’ writes, sings, and co-produces all his material. He describes his music as “smooth R&B with a soulful backbone to it.” He's an artist that is incredibly versatile, a true presence on stage, and his songwriting is lyrically personal, yet universal.
He credits great artists of the past - Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, and Lionel Richie for inspiration, as well as artists of today such as Brian McKnight, Joe, Eric Benet, Alicia Keys, and Musiq.

In early 2003 Honore’ teamed up with Trek-Life and brought forth a soulful, hip-hop track called “Wonderful,” produced by Spontaneous. This song was picked up by Hidden Beach/Sony music and placed on a compilation CD called “Hidden Hits.” Soon after, a music video for "Wonderful" was directed by up'ncoming multitalent Bobby Torres of Eclipse-Pictures. It was this experience that led to Honore's 1st music video, "Good Love”. In 2004, Honore' fused a collaboration with Eclipse-Pictures, and then partnered with Bobby Torres to form the label Banana Gravy Recordings, taking the next evolutionary step, now fully prepared to be a voice in the industry.

It seems Honore’ is on the right path headed
for great things in the near future. His passion for love and willingness to stay true to himself is a signature written all over his music. Honore’s goal is to continue to record and produce quality music and to get it to the people who are willing to listen. With his faith in God and all the positive support that surrounds him, there seems to be nothing he can’t accomplish or do. Simply listen to the music of Honore’ and enjoy!!!
