Honey And The Money release ambitious and stunning debut

Tuesday, September 23, 2008 (Vancouver, B.C.) – Maximum Music Group together with EMI Music Canada is proud to announce the release of The Elephant In The Room the ambitious and stunning debut long player by Vancouver based duo Honey And The Money.

Produced & co-written by Jared Kuemper (Sheryl Crow, Jann Arden, Jessie Farrell, Tegan & Sara) The Elephant In The Room is full of lush harmonic textures laden with rich pop melodies and advance press states that "Honey and The Money has "hit all the right notes in this remarkably cohesive collection of bright pop-rock, weaving together all the best aspects of pop music to create a beautifully fresh sound giving you everything you could want in a pop record".

Available nationwide across Canada, Tuesday, September 23 via the Maximum Music imprint and EMI Music, The Elephant In The Room is also be available for digital download at iTunes and all other major e-tailers worldwide.

When Honey And The Money (aka. Leila Harrison and Matt Clarke) started playing music together six years ago, Matt was finishing theatre school and Leila was busy acting and had never sung publicly. Over the ensuing years, as these pop tunesmiths carefully carved out a sound and found a voice unique to themselves, Honey and The Money took form. Fast forward to today and after two years in the making Honey And The Money make their major label debut and The Elephant in the Room full of hooks, soaring melodies and compelling lyrics is released to impressive acclaim right out of the box.


“Honey and the Money (Leila Harrison and Matt Clarke) hit all the right marks in their debut album, The Elephant in the Room. Harrison's voice is soothing and seems to come effortlessly, with a soft hint of country. Melted with Clarke's vocals, the duo has established an album that flows eloquently.” - The Peak

“A remarkably cohesive…bright pop-rock collection, Leila Harrison sings so sweetly, she must be Honey.” - The Province

“Sweet music with rich lyrics...Harrison does noticeably resemble Kelly Clarkson, butt hat doesn’t mean Honey and the Money is strictly conventional pop fare. Their new album sports a mix of sounds and genres, utilizing everything from guitar heavy Clarkson-like ballads to more subdued tracks with electronic beats reminiscent of the Postal Service." - Langara Voice
