Handsome Hound is a folk rock band formed in 2015 by Cuchulain Kelly and Claire Daviss in Washington, DC. The band is rounded out by Allison Rosenberg on trumpet, Andrew Northcutt on drums and percussion, and Ben Schifman on bass guitar. Their lyric-driven music has its roots in folk, rock, pop, americana, country, and bluegrass - think Johnny & June Carter Cash meet Shovels & Rope. In March 2016, the band released its debut EP, I Guess We're Doing Alright, which was described as "the musical version of 60 mg of Prozac" by WAMU's Bandwidth. Handsome Hound brings the same level of energy to shows, leading to a rapidly growing following in the DC area and beyond.
