Based out of the collar city Troy, NY, Dark Honey is a strikingly and satisfyingly unique band making lyrically rich, guitar driven indie-pop-rock with the deep heart of a singer songwriter and the soul of an emo kid. Dark Honey is a friend of The Linda, having been an opening support on previous shows, so, we were thrilled to welcome them as a headliner our “Open For Take-Out Virtual Concert Series” back in February. So from that concert this is Dark Honey featuring Jimi Woodul guitar and vocals, Dan Dekalb keys and synth, Ben Woodul on bass and Josh Morris on drums recorded live at The Linda on February 8th 2021.

A smart, witty, and eclectic singer and songwriter, Caroline Rose is a musician not afraid to evolve, growing from a contemporary folkie to an Americana artist with roots rock leanings to a sharp-humored indie pop artist. Hailing from Long Island, New York Rose recorded her first album in 2010, and hit the road, busking when she couldn't land a regular gig. Not to be deterred, she began collaborating with Vermont-based musician and songwriter Jer Coons. Coons produced 2013's “America Religious,” which found Rose tapping into her folk influences. In 2014 Rose released “I Will Not Be Afraid,” it was on the heels of this album that Rose graced our stage in April of 2015. Known for being in perpetual motion touring and living in her van traveling America’s highways and back roads to fuel her creative spirit. More recently Caroline’s been making music that better suits her sense of humor, 2018’s “Loner,” was both adventurous and user friendly, and merged Rose's serious ideas with her unique Caroline Rose humor.   From the vault, enjoy, Caroline Rose recorded live at The Linda on April 17th, 2015.

Before we go we wanted to share a preview of an outstanding artist joining us live at The Linda, August 7th.  Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Leslie Mendelson, who has been described as an artist with “a loyal, cross-generational audience that hugs the hippie, hipster, coffee shop and society crowds,” and “the closest thing one can get to a truly honest musical experience.”

We think you’ll agree. Here’s Leslie Mendelson with “If You Can’t Say Anything At All.” You can get tickets to this show and all of our upcoming shows at the linda.org

This week at The Linda we welcome live audiences back in a joyous celebration featuring Paa Kow and his Afro-Fusion Orchestra, Saturday June 19th.
