Founded in 2008 by Charm Taylor and Matthew Rosenbeck, The Honorable South has refined and developed into a progressively sharpened and unique indie and afro-rock sound. Their music has been described as reminiscent of the eclectic blend of Modest Mouse, the raw rock anthem energy of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the feel good verse of Outkast, and the soulful commentary of Nina Simone. The Honorable South has evolved to include noted and highly regarded New Orleans percussionist Jamal Batiste, bassist Jarred “Nation” Savwoir, and producer, guitarist, Danny Kartel. “Dirty in the Light” EP was released by the band in 2009. This being their first release, it finally put the talent and potential of the group on display for the world. After the release of “Dirty in the Light”, The Honorable South showcased their talent playing shows and sets across different venues in the city, and garnering sales of their EP on the street locally and as far away as the U.K and Japan. Since the release of “I Love My Tribe”, the band has been featured in 365 Dreams “Band of the Day” App for Iphone, the cover of a local alternative newspaper, and has the informed ears of the world buzzing about The Honorable South.
