Retro Pop Vocals
Leftover Cuties: an irresistible combination of sultry vocals, pop-perfect songwriting, and old-school musicianship.
From the opening theme of Showtime’s “The Big C” to the infectiously happy “Smile Big” that propelled last Summer’s Olympic Samsung Galaxy S III commercial to the current worldwide Hyundai commercial that features the group’s cover of “When You’re Smiling,” Leftover Cuties are a band you’ve heard but may not know yet.
This summer, Leftover Cuties will harness all of their past successes to release a brand-new full length album, The Spark & the Fire. Produced by multi Grammy award winning engineer/producer Dave Way (Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow, Macy Gray), the collection is led by the foot-stomping, driving anthem “One Heart,” and features the heartbreakingly sweet ballad “Clarity,” an instant classic. Topped by a full US tour, 2013 will surely see Leftover Cuties catch fire.
