It isn’t every day that I get to work with a musician that I listened to before I started The Wild Honey Pie, so you can imagine my excitement when I got in touch with Nate Martinez of Thieving Irons. With video equipment in hand, I headed to Manhattan’s Stuy Town to meet Nate and fellow singer-songwriter Josh Kaufman. We quickly agreed upon a dimly lit staircase as our shooting location, which in hindsight, couldn’t have worked out any better.
The band’s debut LP, This Midnight Hum, is filled with beautiful arrangements, Conor Oberst-like vocals, and deadly honest, heartbreaking songwriting, and has quickly become my lullaby anthem of the fall. You can purchase it here.

‘Buzzsessions’ is a live session series made by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we travel with a different band to a different part of New York City and record sometimes-intimate/sometimes-wild versions of two or three songs which are given away for free.
