The Band

Energetic, powerful, thought-provoking: Hidden Doors brings back Rock ’n Roll in a surprisingly poetic fashion.

The original group consisted of Tracy Tchai on vocals, Steven de Leeuw on guitar and Joost van Beek on drums. They got together in 2017 and started looking for a bass player who fit into the close knit group. Soon after, Hugo Kruis joined the band and they were ready to hit the stage.

Having organised an all-out countryside writing weekend, they finished their first two singles: “Redneck Fields” and “Sober,” even then, plans for the debut EP were already on the table.
It is set for digital release in early 2019, and It will be even more distinctly ‘Hidden Doors’, with songs that will have everyone up on their feet in minutes.
