HoneyHoney (stylized as honeyhoney) is an alternative folk group based in Los Angeles, California.
The band was formed in 2006 by musician Benjamin Jaffe and musician/model/actress Suzanne Santo. The two met at a costume party and signed a record deal a year later. Their debut album, First Rodeo, was released on November 4, 2008 under the now-defunct Ironworks record label, run by actor Kiefer Sutherland and friend Jude Cole. Sutherland starred in the group's music video for their song "Little Toy Gun". HoneyHoney toured with Lifehouse, another Ironworks band, at the start of their career. The band released their second studio album, Billy Jack, on Oct 24, 2011 under their own honeyhoney Records/Lost Highway label.
Paste Magazine describes HoneyHoney's style as "displaying the common pop thread between alt.country, spaghetti western soundtracks and swampy blues."
Glide Magazine stated that "honeyhoney deftly mixes elements of folk, soul, country, pop, and rock."
In April 2014, the band traveled to Williamstown, Massachusetts, where Jaffe was raised, to perform a concert on behalf of local music programs. The band is planning a similar concert for schools in Santo's hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
