We had the good fortune of connecting with Breathless aka Honey B and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Breathless, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
I believe one of the most important factosr behind my success is my ability to allow my authentic self to be the muse of my stories. Every song is a sincere expression of an emotion or thought or vibe in a moment in time. I’m able to use word play, metaphors, storytelling and more to compose an auditory virtual reality into my mind. Into my heart. I speak my truth, in all the ways and I think that vulnerability and transparency connects to those who listen. This carries into my stage show. Energetic and one that really creates a synergy and tethering between crowd and performer.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Definitely a performance of mine. Dj Rasta Root’s Face Off Fridays is always a fun if you love to dance\! Hattie B’s Chicken, Juicy Crab…I’ve only lived in the area for almost a year now so I’m still finding exciting things to do and delicious places to eat. Not always IP, but always a good time.
