Formed on a whim in Waco, TX in 2016 to compete in a local battle of the bands, singer Seth Findley, guitarist Brooks Whitehurst, drummer Zach Solomon, and bassist Nate Wallace realized their music may in fact be something worth pursuing after winning the competition.
Mixing 80’s tinged synth-pop with guitar forward indie rock, Honest Men released their first EP, “Okay Dreamer” in January of 2017. Amassing hundreds of thousands of streams within the first few months of its release as well as notable playlist placements such as New Music Friday, Fresh Finds, and more, the band spent the year crafting a buzz-worthy live performance, headlining shows across Texas, and supporting acts such as COIN, Colony House, Smashmouth, Kings Kaleidoscope, and more.
2018 saw the band relocate to Austin, Texas and release a follow up to 2017’s debut. “Honest Men”, the self-titled EP, more than doubled the streams and reach of their first EP while showcasing a much more polished and versatile sound for the band, anchored by vibrant singles such as “Mad Love”, “I’m Okay”, and “Rose”.
Honest Men went on to headline their first out-of-state tour in the spring of 2019, playing for hundreds across the Mid West. “A TOUR OF THE MIND” was an audio/visual experience unlike anything the band had achieved prior. The tour featured the band’s new single “My Mind”. An edgier, more mature sound, “My Mind” takes the band back to their rock roots while delving into the darker, more personal side of life.
With no signs of slowing down, Honest Men continues to write music and play shows across the US.
