‘Moonshine & Honey’: The Hook’s Sweet Hangover, Coming Soon

Posted on November 23, 2017 by LVU Staff

“Moonshine & Honey” is like taking all of the finer things in life, jamming them into a bottle and chugging, but tasting every drop, sipping on the lyrics and savoring every beat. The result is something simple, sweet, serious, and intoxicating. The essence of the album is captured in this phrase: live, love, and sing like there’s no tomorrow, but always be true. In other words, embrace your disposition — feel good about where you are, what you’ve done, and where you’re going, but don’t get ahead of yourself. Always remember where you came from.
