Leftover Cuties

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 groups cover of "When You're Smiling", Leftover Cuties are a band you’ve heard but may not know yet.
