Leftover Cuties

Leftover Cuties – Shirli McAllen (lead vocals, ukulele), Austin Nicholsen (bass, ukulele, vocals), Mike Bolger (brass, keys, accordion, vocals ) and Stuart Johnson (drums, vocals) – have sparked a fire among fans with a timeless prohibition-era jazz sound, combining sultry vocals, pop-perfect songwriting, and seasoned musicianship.   Their spellbinding first album “Places To Go” won raves from critics.  Their impeccable and atmospheric live performances draw ever-growing and increasingly passionate crowds in the speakeasies and rock clubs of their hometown Los Angeles.  A string of impressive licensing placements has won them fans the world over.  Among those big spots: the theme for the Showtime series “The Big C” and an ad for Samsung that aired over and over (and over and over…) during the 2012 Olympics and generated more than three million YouTube views. “The title of the album stands for that yearning to hold on to the beginning of things,” says McAllen.  “The part where everything feels new and pure, there there’s excitement and promise of great things to come.”
