Oakland’s Hello Handsome

You may not realize it, but we LOVE submissions from new artists. Many of the artists you read about came to our attention via our submission page, which you can always easily find at the very top of the page. All we need is your contact info and a link to your Bandcamp and Soundcloud page. We receive a ton of submissions, but it’s difficult to write about everyone, so we’ll be having regular posts dedicated to some of our favorites. Our first edition contains a pair of artists from Oakland.

Hello Handsome, who was once a member of San Francisco band Chambers and is a co-founder of Girl’s Rock Camp, recently released a wonderful indie pop tune, “Big Deal”, which you can hear below. The rest of Hello Handsome’s work is available for stream or download on their Bandcamp page.
