Jackson Honeycutt, a singer-songwriter and student at Wake Technical Community College, is coming to The Station in Carrboro on March 9 to perform with his band. Staff writer Skyler Taggart talked to him about his upcoming performance and his experience as a student musician.
Daily Tar Heel: What’s your favorite kind of music to perform?
Jackson Honeycutt: I don’t know. One time in high school we got to play a song on a rooftop for my high school’s charity benefit night, and we played “Reptilia" by The Strokes, which is a song on Rock Band, and it was very exciting to be able to play an actual rock song by an actual rock band on a rooftop. Most people call our music "indie-rock." A Canadian radio station called it "nostalgia pop" once, and so I like to say our genre is that — but playing any kind of music with a group of people is fun.
DTH: Why are you coming to Carrboro to perform next week?
JH: I talked to one of the guys that was booking the show, and I love playing in Chapel Hill. It’s always a lot of fun — especially in March. I know it’s an exciting month for people in Chapel Hill with the basketball. Any time I get the opportunity to play in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area, I love getting to do it.
