Bill Hooper was a long time resident of Yellow Springs. He was responsible for the construction of over 300 houses over the course of his career as a contractor. He was also involved in many building projects on behalf of Antioch University while he served as a trustee of this institution.
He oversaw major building projects on the Antioch campuses in Seattle, Washington and Keene, New Hampshire. Hooper was also involved in numerous Antioch building projects here in Yellow Springs, including the current WYSO studios which opened in 1995.
The 3 members of Honeymoon haven't been playing together long, but the instant chemistry between the players has made for well-crafted and increasingly complex songwriting. The band's mutual musical influences have resulted in a poppy sound with a darker edge on their debut EP Xylography.
Honeymoon visited the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope and chatted with host Juliet Fromholt about forming the band, recording and what's to come for the band.
