Hidden Cabins is an eclectic, indie-folk duo comprised of Craig Cirinelli (microphone/hand percussion) & Brian Hofgesang (guitars/textures/synths), writing melodic songs with a simplified vision yet a complex emotive flair.
Far reaching exposure has seen them journey outside of the USA on multiple trips to England, Scotland, Spain and Canada. <p>When the new EP by NJ/NC’s inter-state group was formulating, a few changes were instilled to gain a little more bombast. After gigging/touring solely as a duo the first couple years, Craig Cirinelli (vocals, percussion) and Brian Hofgesang (guitars, textures) of Hidden Cabins began to expand their noticeable “bigger than a two-piece” live sound one step further, by bringing in drummer Rich Perry (of The Skels) for sporadic gigging over the next year. Their usual effects-laden, split-channel amp tones, amidst a resonantly full vocal combination of rock, folk and indie, now gained a backbone. As ideas expanded on songs old and new, Rich introduced bassist Jason Del Guidice (formerly of The Suspects) to the group, writing bass melodies to songs that hadn’t had them since inception. The inclusion of this rhythm section for key shows, allowed Hidden Cabins to not only enhance their live impact, yet also spark a desire to capture this bigger sound for a refreshing take on the band.
