Utilizing a layered, atmospheric approach to beat craftsmanship and jazz improvisation, San Francisco Bay Area quartet Secret Sidewalk has armed themselves with a multitude of talented musicians and musical tools to build a compelling and distinct sound of their own. Founded in 2010, Secret Sidewalk is comprised of a close-knit group of musicians, all born and raised in the Bay Area, yet at the same time deriving from vastly different backgrounds and crafts.
The group is comprised of inveterate jazz, hip hop, and experimental music practitioners that are well-versed in taking their listeners on a journey. Some of the groupʼs past shows include playing at the inaugural MUTEK San Francisco, Hiero Day, Low End Theory (Los Angeles and San Francisco), SXSW, and “Smart Bomb,” the most forward-thinking live and electronic showcase in the Bay Area - a monthly event founded by the band in 2012.
After the band’s highly sought after 45 and various limited run cassettes, Secret Sidewalk has released its first full length LP in 2019.
