Biography

Funky fresh sound
Hank & Cupcakes heat up Williamsburg with new EP and sizzling live shows. On stage, at least, Cupcakes can’t help but stand out, with her explosive, commanding voice and overt sexuality (despite her cutesy nickname, this is a woman who penned the track “Pleasure Town,” a funk-disco enthused “Love Shack”). When they play Brooklyn Bowl this month, Hank & Cupcakes look to “rock the stage really hard and hopefully burn the place down,” said Cupcakes. Don’t be surprised if they do.."
The New York Post

Brooklyn duo Hank & Cupcakes pumps out tight, funky indie pop with impressively sturdy hooks"
Time Out New York

"The remarkable duo gustily riled up the crowd at Greenwich Villages’ Le Poisson Rouge last Wednesday night for their new EP release..Debuting their performance with their song “Pleasure Town,” the pop and minimalist experimental couple instantly filled the venue with infinite glory"
Zink Magazine - 5.20.10

"As Hank & Cupcakes set the stage on fire at Mercury Lounge with their sonic pop tapestry, flashes of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore danced in the periphery. New to NYC, Hank & Cupcakes are quickly hooking everyone in their path with their dirty gloss and sweet edge. The sound was crisp and tuned, the energy was fuzzy and warm and the mood was soul."
Socially Superlative - NYC

"...Armed only with a drum kit, a bass guitar and a complete disregard for their own limitations, the two smack and slap their way through herky-jerky dance-pop songs that bristle with sass and sexuality..."
Fly Magazine, PA.
