Secret Handshake

Clever Songs for Troubled Times on Transformer USB Drives (Mastered by Grammy-Winner Phil Nicolo)


of goal

Blending and bending musical genres, Headsnack delivers powerful yet entertaining messages that are both socially and politically aware. He has a sound that’s all his own but if you must categorize, consider it the love child of Run the Jewels and Weird Al (though Headsnack is not a parodist).

His tasty beats are meticulously crafted into a wholly original sound that fuses elements of hip-hop, rock, pop, funk, and jazz. This is deep sample manipulation wizardry mixed with live instrumentation.

Lyrically, call it alternative Hip-Hop with a conscience. Headsnack explores the trappings of our daily routines through clever wordplay and unforgettable hooks. Addressing the major issues of our time through a comic lens, Headsnack manages to tackle heady, weighty topics with humor and positivity.

His songs are catchy, fun, sometimes weird, sometimes hardcore, always honest, and often educational. Feast on these delicious cerebral treats to elevate your consciousness.

Headsnack is signed to Grammy-winning producer, Phil Nicolo’s label, Phil’s Records. Phil Nicolo is known for having worked with John Lennon, Sting, Bob Dylan, Lauryn Hill, Cypress Hill, Billy Joel and Diana Ross.

Phil, the mastering engineer on “Secret Handshake”, describes Headsnack as having “captivating tracks deserving several listens to peel back the layers of complexity.”

Now you can be a part of history by purchasing an advance copy of “Secret Handshake” and in turn, getting rewarded with loads of cool extras such as 8GB of goose-bumping earworms on a transformer thumb drive! Funds will go towards defraying the costs of mastering and purchasing the Transformer USB drives.

This goes without saying, but you’ll also receive unbounded gratitude and appreciation from Headsnack!! What are you waiting for? Pledge today and become part of the solution!
