Now You See Them is exactly like you…and that’s what makes them special! Their sound can be described as super fun acoustic folk/pop, but their music is much more than a pigeonholed genre. It’s a reflection of three kind people who work hard and expect incredible things in return.Read More...
Meeting in the Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights, Dulci, Shane, and Jason discovered that they were all from western Pennsylvania. This one common bond seemed to bind the three of them and forced them into a life that none of them could have ever imagined. Being no more than close acquaintances, somehow the three of them decided to pack up everything and travel the World together.
Hawaii was the first stop. Swimming rivers to get to work and walking two miles to the grocery store Shane, Jason, and Dulci worked in restaurants and coffee shops saving up enough money to make it to their next stop. Four months later they were in Australia.
Once in Oz, yet again working odd jobs to save travel money, they decided to put a positive use to their individual music talents…Now You See Them was born! They played bars and clubs all around Sydney until, one at a time, immigration discovered them playing music and making money without the proper papers. They were all deported back to the U.S.
Now You See Them regrouped and literally hit the streets of Asheville, NC. Refusing to wait for their “big break” Jason, Dulci, and Shane honed their skills by playing their music on the sidewalks, in front of restaurants and tourists. People took notice and quickly adopted Now You See Them as Asheville’s hottest new band!
Often described as a breath-of-fresh-air, Now You See Them conveys an upbeat and beautiful sound. Live, they supply an endless amount of fun and energy that transfers to everyone around; diving further into their music reveals slow burning lyrics that take shape, evolve, and become more personal with every listen. Sporting unique instrumentation while delivering beautiful harmonies, they’ve quickly turned their fan base from a few errant bar stragglers and by passers to perpetually packed houses.
Constantly writing new songs while arranging creative covers, Now You See Them is trying desperately to be part of the wave of coming change in culture and music. Most likely due to their blue-collar backgrounds, the band members have a firm grasp on the struggles and victories of the middle class, and much like traditional American folk and oldies, the root of their music is in spiritual growth through life experience while appealing to the everyman’s constant search for quality of life.
