We never know what to say about our music, so here's what others have said about Honeycreeper and our album 'Freakqualizer': 'The members of Albany-area alternative rock outfit Honeycreeper are nothing if not ambitious: atop a pneumatic punk-funk base, the energetic foursome pile on weighty slabs of hip hop, reggae, hard rock and 1990's American ska. And it's proven to be a winning recipe, making the act a frequent club favorite locally and up and down the East Coast. Freakqualizer, Honeycreeper's debut album, is a sharply produced, impressively realized first effort that, quite loudly and literally, screams out for college and alternative radio airplay.' - Peter Aaron for The Daily Freeman 'The opening of Honeycreeper's Freakqualizer grabs your attention with a jazz-infused rhythm that rages straight out of Mandy Beck's saxophone. But when the multitalented Beck's voice joins the fun, you're suddenly jolted into taking a second listen. Shouldn't be surprising, then, that the track is entitled "Your Voice". Honeycreeper do not need to rely solely on the strength of this kick-ass lead female singer/saxophonist, though; their personalized approach is enough to latch on to your eardrums and hold on tightly throughout the rest of the album. By "The Man", you're probably thinking this band is certainly rocking your iPod and would probably be even more gratifying live. The punk, ska, hip hop, and reggae blend together for a sound that is eccentric, catchy and ultimately entertaining.' - Amy Tetreault for Face Magazine "Honeycreeper has released what I consider one of the best albums of 2006 with Freakqualizer. Every song is fun and energetic and will make you move. The vocals, provided by Mandy Beck are absolutely amazing. This is destined to be a classic record so you may want to jump on this one right now. Great record and this would make a fine addition to anyone's collection of music." - Jeffrey Kurtis for All Ages Zine "Those of us who grew up listening to Pantera, Tribe Called Quest, Bob Marley, Deee-lite, and the Dead Kennedys all on the same mix tape won't want to miss Honeycreeper, a funky, sexy mish-mash of all those genres. Leading lady and songstress Mandy Beck plays sax with a vengeance and her boys bring the funk." - Amy Martin for The Portland Phoenix "Honeycreeper is the sh*t, plain and simple. From the first track, "Your Voice," you know that this CD will be like nothing you've ever heard before. This is a disc jam-packed with styles, solos, energy, and fun. I definitely recommend seeing these guys and picking up a copy of Freakqualizer." - Todd Springer for CTSka.com "Bringing together influences from all over the musical spectrum with a dynamic female lead... Honeycreeper is one of the most fiercely original groups in the current music scene." - Gutterman for TeamScene.com.
