Elevator Pitch

Noirish post-Americana, punk country writing inspired by  stories  of   the hilarious, the heartbreaking, the human and the absurd. "Three chords and the truth."  Amen.


The Handlers are half-American and half-Roman, the former spawned on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp and the latter weaned in the shadow of the Coliseum. We like our music like we like our food; hot'n'honest and plenty of it. Think Pizza Margherita with extra 'gator meat...

Under The Influences

Well, it's kind of like what you might get if Dolly Parton and  David Lynch gave birth to Patti Smith...or something like that. 

What folks are sayin'

"an extraordinary singer-songwriter" Joanna Reeves, I Love Primrose Hill

"Like hearing Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham after a week-long bender"

"Loved their kick-ass set" Kathleen M.
