Genre: Indie Folk, Rock
From: Modesto California
Falling somewhere in that perfect gap between folk and punk rock, The Troubles Of A Handsome Man have found the perfect sound to match the story telling nature of their songs.
They have taken a few different forms over the past 5 years but never really found their footing until 2015. With chord driven folk riffs, classic rock inspired bass lines and a backbone of punk rock, they have put together a style that spans multiple genres.
Their Self Titled debut release is 6 songs that take you from a damaged intern to the loss of a close friend. The lyrics paint a picture spanning a wide variety of emotions that become enhanced with the instrumentation and song structure. The stripped down punk feel that of Violent Femmes is augmented with fiddle straight out of a classic country showcase.
TTOAHM Self Titled Ep is released by Way Grimace Records and Ronald Records. A small limited edition of cassettes are also available through http://ronaldrecords.limitedrun.com/ The Self titled EP is also available at all major digital stores.
