About Honey LaRochelle:
The Vancouver born, Texas-raised, Florida-reformed, and Brooklyn-saved vocalist is on a roll. Larochelle took on a leading role in the group “Voice Play” for the NBC hit show “The Sing Off,” where her group was in the quarter finals. In addition the soul music authority, “Soul Tracks” awarded Honey “Best New Artist” reader’s choice award for her debut release, "The Yes Feeling." This critical acclaim has only highlighted the profile of Honey, who has been described as funky like Chaka, soulful like Alicia, and edgy like Lauryn.
Mellissa Mya Larochelle, known professionally as Honey Larochelle, has been all over the world searching for her “sound.” Born to a mother who was a singer for many popular soul groups in the 70s and 80s, Honey was born to sing. That ambition ultimately took her to Orlando, FL, where she began to develop her professional music career. It was easy for her to initially break into the professional scene at Disney World and Universal Studios, where she stood out as a performer and was ultimately awarded Best Female Acappella Lead.
Honey has toured with the Brand New Heavies, Joss Stone, Omar, and many other bands, eventually leading to her first record deal with Macy Gray that unfortunately didn’t come to fruition. Between touring as a background singer, producing, arranging, and writing for other artists, Honey rarely had time to reflect and explore inward for the sound she was looking for; one that moved her and felt like home.
Finally, after many twists and turns in her story, this Roberta Flack protege discovered her very own warm yet edgy mash up of classic soul, R&B, hip-hop and reggae music. Honey found and coined it the Fun & Sexy Side of Soul Music.
Butter Fly Soul Records released Honey’s debut album, “The Yes Feeling” in 2013 and it is now getting some of the recognition it deserves.
