She first picked up the guitar right before her junior year of college, and has been in love ever since. Kristina released her solo EP " The Meadows" in 2010 which is available for purchase on Itunes and Amazon. Pursuing many artistic endeavors, Kristina is also an actress, painter and a writer. She is a company member of Organic Theater Company, and has performed all over Chicago with both music and theatre. She also recently took on the role of the Director of Marketing for Organic.

VOCALS/ VIOLIN/ SAX
Beginning lessons as a child, Kim gigged around town as one part of "The Fiddlin' Duo," receiving acclaim for their rendition of the song, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." Having matured, Kim's love of music blossomed into different pathways, and she enjoys singing, performing, and playing sax and violin with Honey. She has performed and collaborated in many musical groups, from singing R&B to harmonizing with various barbershops. Aside from music, Kim's interests lie in political activism and helping forward progress for women and of course...world peace :)
Chris banged on his first snare drum at the age of three, but officially picked up the instrument at the age of ten. Since then he has played in a dozen or so bands and one orchestra ( with fellow bandmate Kim Kozel). Chris spends most of his time away from the kit focusing on other music-centric activities, such as live sound engineering, recording, audio system design, and theatre sound design.

Sean Tatum began playing music at the age of 10. He began with the saxophone and continued to hone his saxophone skills throughout school. He picked up the bass at age 18 and has since played bass exclusively. Mostly self taught, Sean has a wide and varying taste in music and feel. He has always been fortunate to be surrounded by talent that far exceeded his own, forcing him to attain the next level of ability. After a short stay at Northern Illinois University School of Music he began playing with local Chicago acts. Sean currently splits his time between music and independent journalism.
