The blues/soul/R&B/rock band from Austin, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears was formed in 2007. In March 2009, Esquire named them one of the "Ten Bands Set to Break Out at 2009's SXSW Festival." Their music is heavily influenced by Howlin' Wolf and James Brown, but this American blues, funk and soul artist has his own unique, hard to imitate style, as well.
Joe Lewis first picked up the guitar a few years before he immersed himself in the local Red River blues/garage scene, recording and performing with Weary Boys and Walter Daniels. The band quickly gained critical national acclaim and toured as openers for Spoon and Okkervil River in 2007. The next year, the band signed to Lost Highway Records and performed at 2008's Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits Music Festival. Inspired by the smashing success of those shows, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears released a four-song EP in 2009. The same year, they released their debut album Tell 'Em What Your Name Is! produced by Spoon's drummer Jim Eno.
