Hailing from the college town of Morgantown, West Virginia, The Hide and Seek Effect is a Piano-Pop/Rock experience comparable to a number of current Top 40 artists but most definitely unique enough to be considered something totally different - something entirely new.
With the recent release of its freshly recorded "Ready or Not EP", The Hide and Seek Effect has been working nonstop to promote the six song collection that packs a powerful pop-rock punch. The catchy, ready for radio songs that make up "Ready or Not EP" are refreshing blends of captivating melodies and infectious hooks that will keep music lovers listening repeatedly for days.
The EP's noteworthy single "On Your Mind" has been extremely well received by the public, winning a Gold Auddy Award from uplaya.com and pushing The Hide and Seek Effect to the 1 slot on Indie-Music.com's Pop-Rock chart.
When The Hide and Seek Effect formed in 2008, the members set forth on a mission - a mission that the group would be able to share its passion for music with anyone who was willing to listen. Since then, The Hide and Seek Effect has been featured as Music123.com's Band of the Week, as a noted band in the national publication Gladys Magazine's "Next in Line" segment, as well as being a part of many other web sites geared at the promotion of great music.
The Hide and Seek Effect has shared the stage with several well known artists including Lights Resolve (at Mr. Small's Theatre in Millvale, PA), Reel Big Fish (at the Deja Vu Festival in Elkins, West Virginia), Huey Mack, Wiz Khalifa, and Snoop Dogg (all at the WVU Coliseum on Feb. 25, 2011).
The Hide and Seek Effect: Quite possibly the greatest piano rock band in Morgantown, WV. Also, quite possibly, the only piano rock band in Morgantown, WV [not entirely sure].
