After a year or so in the proverbial wilderness (i.e. beginning a trade and a degree), we're very pleased to announce that we're back on the ole musical bandwagon, if you'll excuse the pun, under the guise of Sofiella & The Handsome Husbands.

We've had the very good fortune of meeting and sharing music with Julian Smith (double bass, vocals) and Leroy Steven (percussion, vocals, guitar, washboard) who make up 2/3rds of the Husbands, along with Huckleberry Jim. Since coining the new band name, we've also had the pleasure of meeting Anni De Groot (viola, vocals) and hence may be re-thinking our choice of moniker. Until that time, we'll just go with a loose, gender-neutral interpretation of the term, "husband" – that, or we'll give Anni a moustache.

Come meet the new outfit at the Channon Markets on Sunday December 10th. We'll be on from 10-2:30pm. And keep an eye on more shows to come early in the new year!
