The Wild Honey Collective formed in the summer of 2020 to perform original songs and traditional American folk music. Tommy McCord, Danielle Gyger, Timmy Rodriguez, and Dan O’Brien launched the project in rural Michigan as a back porch acoustic gathering purely for the love of music in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The natural getting-back-to-the-roots beginning of the band was very effective and led to the immediate recording of the 2021 The Wild Honey Collective: Volume 1 full-length debut album, which Local Spins described as having “its feet firmly rooted in classic country and folk while daring to allow its head to explore the technicolor clouds of psychedelia.” The principal founding quartet of The Wild Honey Collective has subsequently been joined by an esteemed roster of collaborators live and on record, including pedal steel guitarist and “vice principal” Adam Aymor, drummers Dave Shilakes, Kevin Adams, and Hattie Danby, bassist Nicholas Richard, Detroit music mainstay Jeremy Porter, and Michigan roots music pillars Mike Lynch and Drew Howard, among many other talented folks. The 12-track The Wild Honey Collective Volume 2 album was issued in July 2022, building on the foundation of original and traditional music set by the debut album, with an added sense of energy brought on by a year of live performance that saw the group becoming a mainstay of the Michigan roots music circuit as well as multiple tours of the Midwest and East Coast. The Wild Honey Collective is ever-evolving and encompasses sounds of traditional string band music, rowdy country rock, psychedelia, classic pop and more to preserve and nurture the lineage of Cosmic American Music.
