Your Hand In Mine" consists of two 24-year old students from Thessaloniki (Greece). Manos plays wurlitzer piano, melodica, toy piano, and does the programming, while George plays some guitar shaped toy synth, mandolin, glockenspiel hits random objects in his rythmic kit.

The project came out from members of the postrock band "Shortcat" in late 2006, giving them the opportunity to express their love to acoustic instruments, french folk songs and street musicians. With a constantly growing collection of custom, toy instruments and machines, "Your Hand In Mine" act as live-looping based duet, willing to present a new-romantic, deeply personal sense of chamber music.
Being strongly impatient, in January 2007, they release their first recordings in 100 totally handmade cd copies. The self titled EP, having references to modern west-european folk and experimentation, defines the band's aesthetic and identity.
