Hopefully Forgiven - voted 'Best Band in the Hamptons' by Dan's Papers for the past two years - is a high energy, mellow vibin', harmony soaked cocktail of 100 years of American music and spirits. Singer/songwriters Telly Karoussos, and 'Alabama Brad' Penuel (fresh from Nashville) deliver big harmonies and authentic songwriting that transcend the 'americana' genre and has attracted a devoted multi-generational fan base.
The brotherhood that is Hopefully Forgiven began shortly after a chance meeting through an internet post when Brad offered his Brooklyn railroad apartment to Telly in exchange for watching his dog. After sizing each other up and realizing they shared a passion for music and surfing, Brad said "I think this will work. My house is yours-- you can even play my guitar if you want....just don't touch my boots."
