Guest Bio: Wild Honey Band
What started as a desperate desire for comradery and purpose became the all-female band, Wild Honey.
With eight daughters under the age of seven, Laura Cain, Jessica Niedermeyer, and Shelby Knudsen decided they needed to find a reason to get together. Something that wouldn’t be so easily cancelled when things got chaotic, which was almost always.
After much discussion, they landed on a band. Shelby played some campfire guitar and Jess grew up surrounded by music and musicians, although she carried a deep fear of performing. Laura had an unspoken dream to play the violin. A band seemed perfect. It couldn’t be that hard, right?
Ten years later, and Wild Honey is going strong. Aside from the band, Laura has earned her masters in counselling and opened her own thriving practice. Jess became a pilates instructor and opened a private studio called Free Rein Pilates, recently deciding to step away from instructing to focus on her cattle ranch. Shelby published a novel called Mountain Girl, and has completed two more which are waiting for publication. She was the editor-in-chief at Kootenay Living Magazine prior to the pandemic.
In 2019 Wild Honey released their first album, Distant Skies. They are currently working on their second. They have faced moments on stage, back stage, and trying to get to the stage, that have almost broken them, but they have always chosen to continue. The vulnerability and raw fear of performing have humbled them to their cores, but after a good cry and a gin martini, they keep going.
The early days of babies, breast pumps, and peeling kids off their legs to go play in bars are over. Now they share beautiful stages with talented musicians who inspire them. They write songs about their journey as women and mothers. They have stopped apologizing. Period. For wanting something for themselves and for failing at it long before they succeeded. For not being perfect. They’re not sorry. They’re grateful. They won’t tell you it’s easy, but they will tell you that you deserve to try. You deserve to try and to fail and not say sorry. Because that’s life, and while you’re lucky enough to be here, you might as well jump in with both feet.
Wild Honey plays annually with Barney Bentall and the Cariboo Express, and have been
honored to share a stage with great talents like The Odds, Leeroy Stagger, Ryland Moran, and many others. More info on the band is available on their website – www.wildhoneyband3.com or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
