Still working on that hot first release.



He came from Toronto; she, from Seattle.
Both had music in their blood, instruments in their hands, and a mind to create.

The mountains led him to the west; a star led her to the north. 
In Vancouver they met and schooled—studying music and life.
They found promise.
They found love. 

In less than a year they put school on hold, got married, and lived.

Entering the Nashville music scene in 2009, Handsome and Gretyl released their debut EP, Hold On Tight Love, in February 2011 followed by their Christmas EP, Wonder, December 2012. After 2 years, 2 tours, a move to Seattle, and a baby, they released their first full length record, Miles and Miles, on September 3, 2013.

In 2015, Handsome and Gretyl embarked on a unique and risky project called Twelve. This new album was written, recorded and released one song per month. Fans pre-ordered Twelve via PledgeMusic and were able to follow along as it grew in to a complete album on December 12, 2015. 

Handsome and Gretyl have created an earthy folk feel crossed with an imaginative jaunt of pop, a sweet and tangy piece of wild berry pie. This duo draws from real life, delivering optimistic though realistic lyrics, seasoned with the chill of snow, the sea breeze, and the hope of tomorrow’s sunrise.
