Honey Magpie is an indie-folk trio from the Chapel Hill, NC area. Their sound is both traditional and modern, blending classical string instruments and three-part harmonies with pop, rock, and indie influences. They released their first album, Honey Magpie, in July 2017.
They began playing together as a band when Rachael Hurwitz (vocals, guitar, keyboard) moved to North Carolina in 2014. She recruited Pippa Hoover (cello, vocals) to fill out her original songs about life, love, and travel. Kati Moore (violin, vocals) joined the band in 2015, completing Honey Magpie’s lineup. Pippa and Kati soon also brought original material to the band, expanding Honey Magpie’s repertoire to include a wide variety of nature-inspired songs as well as some traditional and popular covers.
