More About Honeyrunners

“Let it burn. It’s the ashes that I admire.” A taunt from the title track of TheHoneyrunners' debut album,Everything Is On Fire, released on Canadian roots labelGypsy Soul Records, with a fire that sparked airplay on radio stations across Canada, US, UK, Germany, Netherlands, and beyond. Now the boys are back in studio with a raw batch of tunes that will cut through the noise of 2024 like a hot knife.

TheHoneyrunnersare a Northern take on Southern Soul – hot-blooded and rife with the poetry of heartache. The energy of this Toronto indie band is undeniable on stage and on record; an original twist on Americana, made by a melting pot of gentlemen from all walks of life. The band’s prior body of work aimed at disrobing a culture of apathy – a sentiment that everything is always on fire with nothing to do but watch.

The band (toting twelve members for larger shows) is fronted by Ottawa-born singer/songwriter Dan Dwoskin (keys, lead vocals) and Canadian-Peruvian audio-engineer/producer, Guillermo Subauste (bass, vocals). Newer additions to the lineup include Conor Gains (electric guitar, vocals), Jeremiah Pick (electric guitar, vocals), and Dan Leigh McLean (drums, vocals).

TheHoneyrunnershave been lucky to share a decade's worth of stages with friends and mentors including The Sadies, Jim Cuddy, Fred Penner, The Trews, The Beaches, Monowhales, U.S.S., Five Alarm Funk, My Son The Hurricane, Skye Wallace, Samantha Martin, Philip Sayce, Nick Waterhouse, King Khan, and many more over the years.
