Black Joe Lewis
Zach Ernst has been a Honeybear since the beginning.
That would be almost five years ago when the band coalesced in Austin, Texas, to back-up a raw young blues singer named Joe Lewis.
Now Austin is known for its vibrant music scene, but when Ernst heard Lewis’ first recording it stood out.
“He was just sort of unique being this young guy playing the blues,” Ernst said in a recent telephone interview. “I thought Joe was more a throwback to the rock ‘n’ roll wildman.”
So Ernst and some fellow students at the University of Texas brought him to campus to do a show. They struck up a friendship. When Lewis found himself without a backing band for a gig, he called on Ernst, a guitarist, to line up some guys to play with him.
The Honeybears were born.
