All of their songs were produced by Brian Wilson and alot were even written by Brian.
Brian Wilson was a large fan of Phil Spector who was a major producer of many of the hits at this time . Brian's favorte song was one done by Spector with his wife's group The Ronettes and was called " Be My Baby" . Brian decided to try something similar with his girl group "The Honeys" . The Honeys first album was not credited to Brian but to Nick Venet who produced some of the early Beach Boys songs. The second album by the Honeys was credited to Brian and did have a more Spector sound to it. Neither album did that well but Brian decided that for the third time he would write /arrange and produce the music . The album is good but it did not make it commerically . There was a single also released under the name Sharon Marie which was beleive to be one of the Honeys.
