Noeline Hofmann Joins La Honda Records

Noeline Hofmann Joins La Honda Records

Canadian songwriter Noeline Hofmann turns the hard work of her rural Alberta home into beautiful lyrics that break dawn and set sun on a universal landscape. Her voice makes familiar the prairie she sings of as a breeze rolls grasslands or dances the ears of cattle. You listen to her songs and you see them – she doesn’t ask you to believe the lyrics. She does not need to ask because you feel them. That’s authenticity. That’s the La Honda Sound.

So it is with great joy that today we welcome Noeline to the label. Her original song “Purple Gas” was recently released in collaboration with Zach Bryan as a duet. In the coming weeks, La Honda Records will begin releasing more of her stunning songs. To share this news with you all now means the world, as we have come to know, over the last several months, the genuine and sincere woman who is Noeline Hofmann.

Listen to the duet "Purple Gas" with Zach Bryan.

La Honda Records Celebrates 5 Years

La Honda Records Celebrates 5 Years

Around midnight on May 31, 2019, a simple conversation sparked a remarkable journey. Connie asked, “Why don’t we start a record label?” and Travis replied, “We could.”

Today marks the fifth anniversary of that idea becoming reality. What began as a late-night dream has flourished into something we couldn’t have imagined back then. We are incredibly grateful for the journey and the milestones we’ve reached along the way.

Special love and thanks go out to the talented artists who put their trust in us every day. Your creativity and passion are the heart of La Honda Records, and we are honored to be part of your musical journey.

We also want to express our deepest appreciation to the two incredible ladies, Stacey and Taylor, in the picture with us. Your dedication and hard work keep us on track, allowing us to do what we do best. Without you, none of this would be possible.

Lastly, to everyone who follows and supports La Honda Records, both from the outside and within – thank you! Your unwavering support means the world to us. Here’s to many more years of great music and shared success. 

And now, on with the show.

Scott Ballew Featured in Holler.

"'I think the stuff that resonates on a visceral level is stuff that might not be sonically perfect, but it still feels compelling,' said Ballew.

"He expands, 'It comes down to honesty and simplicity. I mean, Colter and I sing in totally different ways. But I think I think you can tell when someone's just singing, naturally and honestly, versus a classically trained, perfect singer. There's just so much stuff out there, and the music on the radio can be over-produced. So when you find something surprisingly raw, understated or rough around the edges, it finds its home with those people that are looking for a real experience'.

"'I've never thought I have a classically good voice', Scott Ballew confesses, 'So when I'm in a room with other musicians that can make it sound really nice, my instinct is to cover it up as much as possible with their goodness. Mike Nau, who produced Rio Bravo, and some of the other musicians were really good at giving me the confidence to let the space provide some of that power. The way we recorded it, it was kind of half-live and spontaneous - half the songs we recorded in one day. Then the other half, it was a bit of a Frankenstein experiment between Mike and I virtually. I'd have a minute to sit with the songs with just the piano or the guitar, and Mike would add one thing at a time, and that approach allowed it to be more stripped down than it probably would have been live.'"
