The Gin Blossoms might be close to local royalty in Phoenix, but when marketing professional/designer Kira Brown met their guitarist, Scotty Johnson, briefly for the first time a few years ago, she wasn’t really sure who he was. The next time was completely different. Brown says it was magic from the start. “We met at The Vig,” she explains. “I said hello, we locked eyes, and now we’ve been together for three-and-a-half years.” But this isn’t just about a love story—it’s about making music as sweet as honey. Brown and Johnson have teamed up professionally with three other band members to create Honeygirl, a country rock band.
