SnugHouse is Nikhil Dasgupta, Alex Millan, Rosie Borden and Laura Pauline. The floodgates of creativity are wide open for this Portland, Maine-based quartet and it explores its full expanse of influences which includes indie-folk, bucolic acoustic balladeering, frisky soulful pop, and delicately textured indie rock. This eclectic palette of sounds and vibes are all masterfully tied together by a sweet sincerity captured by emotionally direct lyrics, a stunning four-part harmony vocal interlace, telepathic musical interplay, and profound interpersonal bonds that shine through onstage and in recordings. SnugHouse tracks fit comfy alongside songs by Darlingside, Ghost of Paul Revere, Lake Street Dive, and The Head and the Heart.
The band name is a tip of the hat to the beloved local watering hole, The Snug, conveniently located below Nikhill’s apartment where he hosted countless formative rehearsals. Since forming in the fall of 2017, the quartet has made profound headway in the local scene. In a short time, SnugHouse went from house shows to bar and brewery residencies, to regular appearances at some of Portland’s biggest local music venues. Select career highlights include television appearances on Portland’s two biggest televised music programs, garnering regular radio airplay on all local stations, most notably Portland’s biggest indie station 98.9 WCLZ. In addition, CLZ has supported SnugHouse through featuring them on their station stage at Portland’s biggest summer food and culture festival, Old Port Fest. Previously, SnugHouse released a self-titled EP available on Spotify and iTunes.

“The most meaningful thing for me is being able to express what I always felt about humanity through my music. I want to bring people in, make them feel special, and break down the walls that keep us apart.”
