It began in 1998 with the release of their eponymous CD SuperHoney. What followed is a string of successes from sold-out shows, to multiple Boston Music Awards, to tours in Europe and China. SuperHoney, the high-octane band from Boston, has preached the gospel of their original soul-rock music throughout New England, the U.S. and around the globe.

The band is fronted by Joan Pimentel, a woman with extraordinary talent, charisma and raw energy. She’s been compared to everyone from Aretha Franklin to Janis Joplin to Bonnie Raitt and with good reason. Joan’s voice is a torrent of emotion, lush with sincerity and rife layered with complexity. On stage she’s drawn the attention of George Clinton, Phillip Bailey, and Yo-Yo Ma. She’s a true vocal genius by any measure. Steve Morse, music critic from the Boston Globe, calls Joanie "one of Boston's best-kept secrets....she can really dig deep for some of the most unchained vocals in town."

2004 was a pivotal year in the band's development. In April, SuperHoney embarked on their inaugura tour of Europe. With shows in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and the Czech Republic, a whole new legion of ‘honey fans came to life. Next came the release of their fifth CD: Theorems and Anthems, a ten-song masterpiece mixed by none other than Mudrock, famed engineer to countless indie-rock and major label artists. His list of credits is far too long to cite but start with Godsmack’s self-titled 1998 smash or Mega Kung Fu Radio from Powerman 5000. In June of 2004, SuperHoney opened-up for legends Earth, Wind and Fire at Mansfield’s Tweeter Center. And in the fall, the band toured again. This time to China. Beijing and Shanghai are now thirsty for more of that special SuperHoney magic.

The band has been nominated for 10 Boston Music Awards since 1998 and has taken home the trophy for Outstanding Funk/R ‘n B Band three consecutive years. Other awards include: the 2000 Boston Phoenix Poll for Best Soul Band, Runner-up in CDnow’s Best Unsigned Band contest, Best Local CD for 2001’s Through the Radio Window as voted by the Boston Herald and scores of others. They’ve shared the stage with Maceo Parker, Earth, Wind and Fire, Chicago, the Tom Tom Club, Rustic Overtones, the Grey Boy All-Stars, the Average White Band, Deep Banana Blackout and Original P. To date, nearly 22,000 copies of their five CD’s have been sold.
