Octogenarian Cornbread Harris still gigs around in the Twin Cities. Recognized for his wit, soulful blues and signature style, he’s also renowned for his famous son—music producer Jimmy “Jam” Harris, who has worked with artists including Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson and Gwen Stefani. Cornbread Harris performed on Minnesota’s first rock record 55 years ago, and his most recent album is a compilation of performances with Cadillac Kolstad, a Twin Cities rockabilly artist. He is currently the subject of a documentary in production titled, “Man, Blues and God – The Life of Cornbread Harris” by Thomas Zocher.

Recorded for MinneCultu Honeydogs perform new material before heading into the studio to record its new CD, “What Comes After” (November release on Grain Belt Records).
Written in earnest and recorded in less than six days, “What Comes After” blends roots pop with orchestral and soul arrangements. From the brash title track to the psychedelic “The Devil You Do,” the Honeydogs are an inspired ensemble. With shades of Leonard Cohen, Harry Nilsson, Nick Drake and Tony Joe White, the new CDis a soul folk and country record tracked with minimal overdubs.
