Tour dates

In July of 2016, we packed up our gear and two kids and launched a touring adventure across the country. We serenaded old fans and new friends in twenty states and Canada, driving over 10,000 miles in less than a month. It was a delightful and rigorous journey full of sleepless nights on the road, laughter, new experiences, and priceless memories. And despite some of the difficulties that accompany a road trip with two small children, being able to meet and play for all of you made all those thorny moments totally worth it. We’ll never forget it.

We’ll be taking a break from touring, but don’t worry — we will find themselves in your neck of the woods again (or for the first time) soon.

Peace and love.




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.
With music and purpose guiding them, school called again and to Nashville they went. 
He became an audio engineer; she became a songwriter; music stayed central and they continued to create.

The couple formed Handsome and Gretyl and released their debut EP, Hold On Tight Love in 2011, followed by a Christmas EP, Wonder in 2012 and their first full-length, Miles and Miles in 2013.  Throughout 2015 they worked  on a new project called TWELVE, where each song was written, recorded, and released each month. Fans were able to follow along via Pledge Music until the official release 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.
