Kevin Hsieh — Bass

Kevin Hsieh

Born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, Kevin Hsieh could be considered a relative late-bloomer in discovering jazz music, trained in classical piano and violin until switching to upright bass and jazz at the age of 17. 

His college studies led him to New York, where he completed a degree in Political Science in 2011 at Columbia University while pursuing a music career in the city. 

Kevin comes from the pedigree of many respected musicians, having the honor of being involved in Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead program and the co-leader of Cleopatra’s Needle late-night jam session. He has also appeared with his own group at clubs such as the Jazz Bakery and Smalls.

Some mentors include Drew Gress, Ben Street, Larry Grenadier, David Wong, and many others. He currently works as a sideman for notables such as drummer Winard Harper and up-and-coming guitarist/vocalist Dida Pelled.
