Handsome Hound

Performed in Sofar Washington D.C., Philadelphia and San Francisco

There's a reason Handsome Hound has been called the "musical version of 60 mg of Prozac." With its energetic, lyric-driven music, the group turns quiet rooms into spirited dance halls, in their home city and beyond. Handsome Hound was formed in 2015 by partners Cuchulain Kelly and Claire Daviss, who met through music communities. Collaborating with top musicians in the D.C. area, the band released their debut EP, "I Guess We're Doing Alright," in March 2016, featuring the crowd favorite "Hannah." Since then, the band has rapidly developed a devoted following in D.C. and beyond. They perform in intimate house shows, famous to D.C.’s eclectic music scene, and have headlined some of the city’s historic music venues and festivals, including the Black Cat, Rock and Roll Hotel, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Millennium Stage. The group has come to be known as one of the most dynamic live bands on the D.C. scene, experimenting with acoustic and electric instrumentation, and even a full horn section.
