Honey of the Heart
Justin Ancheta and Maren Metke have musical nectar flowing through their veins. The dynamic Grass Valley duo is the driving force behind a project that is even sweeter than it sounds. Honey of the Heart is an ambrosial mix of musical interpretations influenced by folk, soul, roots, and world/flamenco styles. Built upon a repertoire of uplifting original material, they join together, or with other phenomenal musicians to create in an organic state of symbiosis. Many of their songs come forth like ancient incantations, casting angelic spells on all in their path. Honey of the Heart weaves soaring harmonies and hypnotic polyrhythms into an alchemical semblance of groove intended for dancing, rejoicing, and blissful recalibration.
Justin and Maren formed the group, Honey of the Heart, to inspire and connect people with their voices, melodies, and world rhythms. Based in Northern California with strong roots in the Bay Area, Seattle. Their music gets as intimate as just vocals and Ukulele, to as large as a twelve-piece band with a horn section, multiple percussionists, and DJ. Their live shows emote a sweet nectar of sounds that can bring people to personal revelation, and community awareness, and uplift the power of joy in our hearts.
