Anishinabe rock guitar legend Billy Joe Green hits us with a new video for his song “Honey Girl” that brings the tempo up to the dance floor levels for you to “put-one-on” and “cut-a-rug” to.
Billy Joe Green aka ‘Osawi Kinew of the Anishinabe Aki-ing Territory’ is a legend of the rock circuit here on Turtle Island. His heavy hitting guitar licks and high energy shows have kept him working for three decades and more.
Billy started out in a group called the Feathermen just out of high school with his mentor and friend Martin Tuesday. Still in his teens, he rocked a fake I.D. and started chopping it up with his Les Paul guitar in the flourishing barroom scene that at the time was the maker or breaker of young rock bands.
Since then Billy Joe has become one of the premiere blues guitar singers earning multi-awards including Juno nominations and a 5 win sweep at the Winnipeg Blues Awards in 2006.
Now Billy Joe comes out hard with this amazing video and high energy song that’ll get your Aunties and Uncles movin’…and you too. The video is produced by StrongFront A/V Productions Inc., the Winnipeg-based audio/video company and was directed by Jesse Green, who himself is an accomplished guitarist from the group X-Status and who also happens to be Billy Joe’s son!
