“Honestly,” the new collaboration from Will St Peter, Steven Heffner, and Steve Barnes
“Honestly” puts on display what is possible when three friends gather to create in an environment of trust and vulnerability. In the space between their rendition of Mancini’s “Days of Wine and Roses” and St Peter’s tribute to his local “Windsor” community, the trio expresses themselves in the only way they know how: honestly.
Individually developing their musical voices and pursuing careers from the far corners of the country, Maine guitarist Will St Peter, Washington State bassist Steve Heffner and the Los Angeles-based drummer Steve Barnes each found their way to the creatively fertile grounds of the University of North Texas's expansive music program over the last decade.
"Honestly" documents the chance meeting of kindred spirits and the development of their shared aesthetic as a trio.
