It takes humility, creativity and above all else, it requires courage to produce relevant art which seeks to tackle and address the orchestrations of the beast, while bringing an energy that encourages us to both meet and rise above the dilemmas and machinations designed to divide us. The band was formed in late 2008 by founding members MS. Charm Taylor and Matthew Rosenbeck. Since then, THS has steadily refined and developed a progressively sharpened and unique indie and afro-rock sound that is reminiscent of the eclectic blend of Modest Mouse, the raw rock anthem energy of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the feel good verse of Outkast, and the soulful commentary of Nina Simone. THS has evolved to include noted and highly regarded New Orleans percussionist Jamal Batiste, producer, guitarist, Danny Kartel and Charles Lumar on bass. Their first release, the “Dirty in the Light” EP of 2009, affirmatively put the talent and potential of the group on display, and it was a year which saw the band hone their craft playing shows and sets across different venues in the city, and garner sales on the street locally and as far away as the U.K and Japan. Since the release of “I Love My Tribe”, the band has been featured in 365 Dreams “Band of the Day” App for Iphone, the cover of a local alternative newspaper, and has the informed ears of the world buzzing about The Honorable South. ...more
