How did the name honey claws come about?
I made a sharpie drawn t shirt of a tiger with honey dripping out of his mouth then made a myspace page for it for my solo project. Thomas and I met a few months later and started making tracks for the first album. We both liked the name and decided to roll with it.
Can you tell us a little about the members of HC and what you do in in the group?
The first record we worked with more people as the core unit. Ben Senior and Traey Hatch helped with that one. Now it’s just Thomas and I for the time being. My strong suit is songwriting in general. I make beats and write melodies/lyrics constantly. Thomas has a really good ear for what sounds good, knows how to shape tracks into a bigger and better final product and also makes beats. We work with a lot of source material at the beginning and just whittle it down together into something we’re both proud of. That goes for the lyrics and the music underneath. On the new record we took a very open minded approach to each other’s opinions on everything rather than having a clear-cut defined role. I think it really helped to make something better.
Knowing that you (Thomas) are in New Zealand and Jon is in Sweden, How hard is it to collaborate living so far apart?
It makes it more difficult but we’ve both been working in the music industry in various ways for a long time. Because of that we’re effective with the time we have together in the same room. Aside from that we have skype meetings to address business stuff and planning, which works well.
What brought you back to Austin to make the album?
We are both from Austin and grew up in the same school system there. It stirs up a lot of emotion for me to be home and definitely channels into the music. Also we made the first record in Austin and Houston and are proud of the results with that one, so we figured: why not try it again…
