Butch Walker produced the newly released debut solo album, Ruby Red, from Suzanne Santo of the Americana duo HONEYHONEY, and also sings a duet with her on the album’s stripped-down ballad, “Better Than That.”
“I’ve never worked with a more selfless, motivating and positive force who cares, first and foremost, about the music,” Santo said of Walker in an interview for the L.A. Weekly. For his part, Walker considers the record “so…sexy, I can’t deal… Proud to have been in the room when these songs were going down.”
Before they collaborated on Ruby Red, Santo made multiple appearances on Walker’s latest album, Stay Gold. She also joined him on the road, singing harmonies and playing violin, guitar and banjo during his nationwide tour last year.
