The Handsome Family

Creating and performing music for the past eleven years, The Handsome Family act comprises the talents of Brett and Rennie Sparks, who continue to draw critical praise for their decidedly distinct make of music. The eclectic duo are currently working on their eighth full-length release to follow-up last year’s Last Days of Wonder on Carrot Top Records.
