The Hiders: WXPN's June 2006 Artist to Watch

The Hiders

The Hiders hail from Cincinnati and there's a good reason why they list Neil Young on their MySpace page as the first of many influences on their new album, Valentine. {readmorelink}Read More...{/readmorelink}

Young's spirit permeates throughout their songs, but there's also a musically robust Americana style going on that recalls such genre classics as Uncle Tupelo, Sparklehorse, Emmylou Harris and The Band. The Hiders also make a strong companion to current rustic rock artists such as Band Of Horses and My Morning Jacket.

The Hiders

The band is fronted by Cincinnati music veteran, singer/songwriter/guitarist Bill Alletzhauser who is a former member of Ohio alt-country group The Ass Ponys. Anchored by Beth Harris's sweet yet aching harmonies, The Hider's debut 'Valentine' balances slow-burning love songs and full on rockers with mesmerizing results.
