Jim Campilongo’s record, “Last Night, This Morning”, featuring Honeyfingers (Jonny Lam – pedal steel, lap steel guitar Luca Benedetti – telecaster guitar, Roy Williams – gypsy guitar, Dave Speranza – upright bass, Russ Meissner – drums) just came in on vinyl. It looks and sounds incredible. You should pick up a copy if you havent!! It looks like it has sold out on Amazon, but you can pick up copies at Jim’s shows in New York or Brooklyn!

The Jim Campilongo + Honeyfingers record, “Last Night, This Morning” is out officially now! We got a nice review from Vintage Guitar, you can check it out here.
Luca Benedetti and Jim did a great job on this one, I finally got to listen to it in a car and I think it sounds pretty fantastic. You can grab it from the iTunes store or Amazon.
I also had the privilege of recording some guitar with rap legend, Busta-Rhymes. That was an unexpected and fun call, Busta was great to work with in the studio.
I am currently in Paris, playing the last Atomic Bomb Band show for the year at Jazz A Villette and getting ready for some much needed downtime where I hope to be recording some new music and finishing some Honeyfingers records!!
The LEGENDARY Jim Campilongo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a record with Honeyfingers! We have been playing together for about a year, and its been an amazing experience, but now we are hoping to be able to document this amazing musical union. I never ever thought I would be sharing a stage with Jim, let alone him asking to make a record with MY BAND. It’s a pretty incredible feeling.
I am going to be on tour A LOT this fall promoting, SINKANE’s new record that comes out this week! He has been getting all kinds of amazing press and I am looking forward to seeing what happens as we star the tour cycle. I am currently in London, to do a BBC6 radio session and then a Rough Trade In-Store, and then we are off to Berlin to start tour. It’s really exciting to be playing guitar AND pedal steel as we take this show on the road! For tour dates, check out the band’s website.
In the MEANTIME, my country band Honeyfingers just finished 4 days at The Rumpus Room studio recording Zephaniah’s originals, some covers for some EXCITING guests, and a bunch of instrumental stuff. It was an honor to be in the studio with these guys, Luca Benedetti, Jim Campilongo, Russ Meissner, Zephaniah O’Hora, Kelli Scarr, Dave Speranza, and Roy Williams. Here is a little taste….
My band, Honeyfingers, has spent the last few months working with NY guitarist, Jim Campilongo, doing arrangements of his tunes for 2 guitars and steel guitar. We are honored to play the last show of his 8 year Living Room residency on October 21st, I think this will be a special night. Here is a song from a gig at Barbés.
