When Michael Natrin asked Erin Magnin to dust off her rarely played fiddle and join him for a couple songs at a local showcase, the two never imagined they were creating a musical partnership that would continue far into the future. Playfully calling themselves The Honey Badgers more to make themselves chuckle than to make a statement, the duet discovered a chemistry between their voices that demanded to be heard, and thus the duo was born.
The Honey Badgers have been creating music together since the summer of 2011. They have since released their debut EP, “Booth Bay”, as well as a collection of recordings entitled “Mad Season”. In November 2013 they released a second EP, “Soul“. They have played all over Delaware and the surrounding area, from the Delmarva Folk Festival in Hartly to the World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington. They have opened for nationally touring act The Lone Bellow, as well as local favorite New Sweden.
The Honey Badgers’ folk/Americana sound has been likened to that of The Civil Wars and The Swell Season. They are known for their intense, unique harmonies, and their sincere lyrics and melodies. With Michael playing guitar, mandolin, and the occasional banjo, and Erin on violin, glockenspiel, and harmonium, The Honey Badgers have created a sound that is distinctive, satisfying, and fun.
