Bio

The Handshake Saints are a (hard) working indie rock-n-roll band with a unique sound that straddles roots rock, R&B, alternative, and soul. At any given moment, the Saints will deliver a passionate, soulful, and ferociously rocking performance that leaves audiences clamoring for more. 

Formed in 2019, the Handshake Saints are a tight-knit band of brothers that includes Aaron Mullins (piano), Roger Norman (drums), Phil Cristofaro (bass) and Josh Masten (guitar).

The original songs, cultivated by a blend of musical influences, bring a decidedly modern twist on a vintage sound. Full of upbeat rhythms, infectious melodies, and engaging lyrics, the music feels rich in rock-n-roll history - The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Otis Redding, Billy Joel, Wilco, Counting Crows, Elvis Costello and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band to name a few.   

The Handshake Saints write, record, and perform their blend of original music in Northwest Arkansas. They are currently producing new songs and have plans to release their first single in 2020.
