‘Old Honey Bee’ is the second single from John Neville’s forthcoming album.
A beautiful whimsical Springtime story, it describes the Old Honey Bee’s unrequited love for a flower! Produced by Martin Leahy, John’s song brings us on the Honey Bee’s magical journey helped along by some gorgeous string playing and harmonies like an ode to Planxty that are rooted in John’s love of Irish and American folk music.
