A caravan of musical gypsies, Hide & Seek has created a harmonious fusion of soul, blues & rock that has been meandering in the New York City music circuit since Fall of 2014. Ranging from whimsically flirtatious to serious social commentary, Hide & Seek's lyrics sit atop evocative melodies and are sung by chief songwriter Alex Newman (vox / guitar). Sprinkling in touches of show-tunes, Adam Spiegel (keys) also compliments the singers with his own broad vocal range. The rhythm section - TIm Shortle (drums) and Ryan Metosky (bass) - pull from jazz and jam influences to create moods that are both haunting and foot-stompingly fun. Rounding out the unique sound is Tony DePiano (lead guitar) who conjures up the spirit of Americana with meaty guitar tones reminiscent of CCR and Led Zeppelin.

Born in Japan in 1989. I started playing the piano when I was 3 years old. And when I was 15, I was inspired by Led Zeppelin and I changed my instruments. I played rock, soul, and funk music for a while. But when I listened to Pat Martino, I started playing jazz and at the same time I started studying with Satoshi Inoue who played in NYC for 20 years and also taught in The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. And in August 2015, I moved in NYC to study jazz in the New School.

www.jacobvarmus.com
Jacob Varmus left his hometown, San Francisco, in 1991 to go to the University of Iowa. Like many before him, he had high hopes of coming of age as a poet while cruising the vast American heartland. He saw language and experience as the tools to probe the deepest layers of the human psyche. In his first year he was admitted to the undergraduate writers' workshop where he studied with Jorie Graham. As he produced poems unremittingly and charted the labyrinthine maze of academic life as an English major, he also played trumpet devotedly, getting a good classical foundation with David Greenhoe. Although not set on a career in music he was nonetheless engrossed in the music of the great jazz trumpeters, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, to name a few. Chet Baker and Woody Shaw were also early favorites and of special import to his trumpet sound then and now.
