Coming to fruition in early 2007, Hands, is an alternative indie project based in Hollywood, CA. With a sound reminiscent of Radiohead and Grizzly Bear, Geoffrey Halliday and Ryan Sweeney create a unique and refreshing blend of old and new sounds; high and low fidelity.


Hands is a alternative indie project in the vain of Radiohead, Grizzly Bear and Cornelius. Recent infiltrators of Los Angeles, Geoffrey Halliday and Ryan Sweeney originally met in Philadelphia. Geoffrey grew up abroad traveling all over the world as an adolescent. Living in the Philippines, Hong Kong, London and Moscow all before the age of 16 definitely contributed to forming his very unique and wordly style of music. A drummer first, Geoff eventually found himself immersed in the world of recording and began teaching himself various instruments in order to be able to record them. After playing drums and keyboards in the Isota Records band Remote Islands for two years, Geoff decided to pursue a musical career in another direction and parted ways with the band to form Hands in Phoenix, AZ with Ryan. They now reside in Hollywood and are enrolled at Musicians Institute. They are working on a new record to be released in early 2008. More music at myspace.com/handssounds (267)-240-7014
