There’s a line on Honey, the latest album from Nashville-via-NYC songwriter
Samia, about Aspen Grove, a collection of 40,000 trees in the plains of North
America, all connected by a single expansive root system. There’s no stronger
metaphor for the audience the 25-year-old empathy engine has been generating
since she began releasing music seven years ago. Her songs, her fans, her
friends: one enormous, interconnected ecosystem.

Honey, comprised of eleven new moments of catharsis, is by and for that
organism. Set for release on January 23rd 2023 via Grand Jury Music, the album
was recorded at North Carolina studio Betty’s –- owned and operated by Sylvan
Esso’s Nick Sandborn and Amelia Meath. It was produced by Caleb Wright, part
of the team that helmed Samia’s breakthrough 2020 debut The Baby, and a
founding member of one of Samia’s favorite bands, The Happy Children. It
features some of her nearest and dearest friends: Christian Lee Hutson, Briston
Maroney, Jake Luppen, Raffaella. Its songs were surreptitiously road tested for
her devotees while opening for Lucy Dacus, Courtney Barnett, and more.

The end result is what Samia calls simply “a real community record.”

“We tried to be as honest as possible and keep the songs as raw as possible,”
Samia said. “We talked a lot about zooming out and zooming in, giving a lot of
weight to the small moments and considering them as part of a big picture, how
they factor into everything else that's happening in the world.”
