SJ Ursrey has played music in Athens for 15 years, as a member of capricious psych collective Dark Meat, an integral part of Dream Boat’s live band and with psych-folk act Creepy, among other projects. Her newest endeavor, Honeychild, is a solo continuation of the beachy, ukelele-based tunes she explored with her previous group, Nanny Island. “I love to write and play songs about the beach and islands and deserts and the sea and stuff,” Ursrey writes on an IndieGoGo page (indiegogo.com/projects/help-honeychild-release-her-first-solo-record-american-beach) she recently set up to raise funds for her Honeychild debut, appropriately titled American Beach. The album, which features guest spots from Page and Claire Campbell of Hope for Agoldensummer, as well as Suny Lyons, Kris Deason and others, is an unabashed ode to the sweet, surfy sounds of summer.
