Hank & Cupcakes

Corn Hill Arts Festival Entertainment

Flush
with simmering sensuality and irresistible dance pulse, Hank & Cupcakes are
the coalescence of rock without guitars and pop without synthesizers. Named in
reference to notorious Charles ‘Hank’ Bukowski and one of his lovers ‘Cupcakes’,
this Brooklyn based duo by way of Tel Aviv Israel & Melbourne Australia defy
modern rock-pop expectations with their full luscious sound, breathtaking stage
personas and the brutal honesty with which they play.

Pedal
board magician Hank commands an army of pedals with his bass guitar while
powerhouse vocalist/drummer Cupcakes dominates the drums standing up (!) while
belting out emotive and groove filled vocals, making it difficult to believe
there are only two people on stage. With a recklessness reminiscent of Karen O
of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, an early RHCP rawness, a fun-punk Ting Tings vibe and
a ‘The Kills’ raw rock sex appeal, Hank & Cupcakes are the embodiment of all
of those, creating a new hybrid of music motivated by true freedom and boundless
limits.

Hailed
by MTV as a “Fresh new artist with an infectious blend of electro pop goodness”
by Paste Magazine as “Irresistibly Danceable” and as having a “Funky Fresh
Sound” by the New York Post, the powerful duo broke away from the music industry
and a BMG label contract just over a year ago in order to be free of artistic
manipulation and corporate BS. Becoming a truly independent band, Hank &
Cupcakes recorded, produced & mixed their second studio album ‘CA$H 4 GOLD’
on their own and are now honing their explosive live performances in front of
audiences as they tour the country.
