Hidden Gentlemen – They are young and old, tall and short, bearded and clean shaven, and related and not.
The story begins with Mark and his passion for guitars and songs from the first blues music to modern songwriters.
Next we have Kyle the bearded drummer who is not afraid to guide the rhythmic path of Hidden Gentlemen while trying to sneak in as much pop sensibilities as he can get away with.
Third member is Greg who is the tall one without a beard, he holds down the groove on bass and hits the red button in their studio.
They’ll let you guess who is related.

‘Open the door to a smokey bar, if you look around you’ll find the hidden gentlemen are here.
Hidden Gentlemen are a rock trio with some electronic tinkering on their album which gives it a very new wave feel. With relaxed grooves and heartfelt lyricism it’s hard not to get into their music’ – Left Of The Dial
‘Hidden Gentlemen are old hands at the music game and their no nonsense (or bullshit for that matter) approach is something impossible to fault.’ – Musically Fresh’
The first song on the EP is Sound Of Your Own Voice. This song has an almost hypnotic quality to it, it’s relaxing and it draws you in.’ – Opinion Overload Bristol
