Still working on that hot first release.



A Fistful of Sugar was convened in late 2010 to solve all the world's problems with pretty little tunes. So far, so good.

Centered around strong, lush vocal harmonies and driving "new folk" instrumentals, the product is a distinctly modern sound that resonates with echoes of 1930s hot jazz, traditional 'old-timey' country, gypsy jazz, and other roots musics. With five vocalists and distinctly bluegrassy instrumentation, A Fistful of Sugar has wowed audiences across the Northeast with their powerful, genre-bending, energetic performances that range from the syrupy-sweet to the gritty and swampy.

A Fistful of Sugar completed their self-titled demo in August 2012 and released their first full-length studio album, Perspicacity in January 2014. That summer, they were tapped to open the main stage at the prestigious Philadelphia Folk Festival, and the band has expanded their musical resume with appearances on WXPN's The Folk show with Gene Shay and an opening slot for the legendary Leon Russell. 2016 looks to be an exciting year with the addition of Jessika Brust to the band roster and a planned New England tour before returning to the studio next winter.
