Emily Neustrom & The Fried Honeys- Live from the PinChurch 3/16/24

A genuine Louisiana roots band that plays with talent, skill, and humor, Emily Neustrom & The Fried Honeys keeps audiences dancing and laughing. Emily’s original songs are inspired by her roots in blues, country, and Americana, the flavors of the Deep South. A compelling songwriter with wry wit and “a heartbreaking voice,” Emily values honesty and the female experience.

Born in Lafayette and absorbing the city’s country, roots and Cajun traditions, Emily Neustrom has forged a collection of songs that blend all three. Her tales of love, loss, family, and struggle are both unique and familiar, challenging and comforting. Now based in New Orleans, Neustrom released her first solo album of original tunes during the pandemic in April 2021. Brimming with songs set in Brooklyn, Biloxi, New Orleans, and across Louisiana, “No More Jambalaya” has been charting on local and college radio throughout region. Her band consists of Tom Andes on guitar, Dustin Smith on drums, MX Turner on bass, Marie Isabelle Pautz on fiddle and when lucky, Hannah Kreiger-Benson on piano.
