Ben Knight has played guitar on his own and in bands around Los Angeles for most of his adult life. Ben is a founding member of The Tyde, and has played and recorded three albums with them since they formed last century and is a guitarist in the reformed Beachwood Sparks after years of auxiliary duty. Over the past few years, Ben has hosted and performed in many jams at Mollusk Surf Shop in Venice, colour-droned with the Golden Hits, and plays in Farmer Dave's Club Pacific Band.

Lauren Sarmir comes from Austin, but has found her west coast heart in Venice. Lauren has played flute in many settings since childhood, including travelling with the University of Texas Band.

One of them can read music, the other cannot. Together, they form Honeycrisp, a new little band setting out to comfort listeners with velvety vibes, mellifluous melodies, and honeyed harmonies.

Garrett Pierce

Garrett Pierce pens songs that peek into that same dark, yet optimistic place that Henry Miller and Leonard Cohen tapped into. His voice seems to soar alongside acoustic ballads or dirgey rock songs with the emotional confidence of someone who has found his path after years of yearning.

Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, Garrett spent the last decade in San Francisco and Davis, CA where he delivered two full-length albums on Crossbill Records. The first, Like A Moth, was from stripped down sessions in basements, closets and the occasional studio. His stark compositions were helped by guest appearances by friends' Jolie Holland and Matt Bauer. His second record, All Masks, was Garrett's epic. Accompanied by strings and over ten musicians, All Masks showed his talents as both a composer and lyricist. With people like Timothy James Wright (Drums/Guitars) Jake Mann (Bass) and Jen Grady (cello) he was able to play shows with that mirrored the fullness of the recording.

"Wow! Bay Area troubadour Mr. Garrett Pierce has continued to nurture and refine his songcraft in a big big way. All Masks blossoms and flourishes onwards from his previous two releases. ... Some of the songs on his latest album verge on the epic yet still maintain his intimate earthy heart." --Aquarius Records
