Biography

Left Hand Shakes is an indie pop/rock band based out of Denver, CO that specializes in earnest, stirring lyrics under the guise of danceable hooks and singable melodies. Driven by frontman Josh Kern's songwriting, Left Hand Shakes' music embraces vulnerability while simultaneously poking fun at it. The resulting sound is honest, guitar-driven pop music that draws comparisons to Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, Bad Suns, etc.

Left Hand Shakes was formed after Josh Kern and Justin Doe met while attending the music program at University of Colorado Denver. After quickly discovering a musical chemistry, they began composing original material together and performed stripped down arrangements of those songs at a local bar/restaurant to see how an audience would react. The duo's music was met with ecstatic applause. Heads were turned, tips were given, hands were shaken (left ones, of course), no further evidence was required to prove that Left Hand Shakes was something worth pursuing. Ben Norton and Troy Thrasher, also UCDenver students, were brought on shortly after to complete the Left Hand Shakes lineup.
