Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters (Asheville, NC-based Americana band) “Live At The Grey Eagle” (producer: Platt; Hear here; Download; iTunes; On Tour) (Organic)
I’ve wanted to do a live album for a long time,” Platt tells P&P. “I think that when a band has been touring together, and everyone is really in step with one another, the songs take on an entirely different spirit live. Some of the older songs have grown and changed with me over the years, and I wanted to capture that, too.

“Live versions simply have more of a pulse to them than studio recordings. I wanted to do it at the Grey Eagle because for me, that was one of my first ‘white whales’ in Asheville. I loved seeing music there and dreamed of headlining someday. Then in 2012, we sold out our first show there! It’s always been a special place for me. I also think it encourages a kind of wildness in the audience that you don’t get everywhere, which I wanted for the album.
