Too hot to sleep
Debut record scheduled for release February 2018.
Composer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer Sam Reider leads The Human Hands, a collective of virtuoso acoustic musicians based in New York City who have developed a cultish following and a reputation for mind-bending sets of high-energy, improvised music. The Human Hands include some of the finest artists in American roots music: Violinist Alex Hargreaves (Turtle Island Quartet, Sarah Jarosz, Béla Fleck), saxophonist Eddie Barbash (Late Night with Stephen Colbert, Jon Batiste and Stay Human), guitarist Grant Gordy (David Grisman, Darol Anger, Aoife O'Donovan), mandolinist Dominick Leslie (Michael Daves, Tony Trischka, Deadly Gentleman), guitarist Roy Williams (Stephane Wrembel), bassist Dave Speranza (Jim Campilongo) and more.
Too Hot To Sleep, the debut record from accordionist, pianist, and composer Sam Reider is the music that gets stuck in your head and keeps you up at night. Featuring thirteen original compositions, mind-bending improvisation, and world-class musicianship Too Hot To Sleep is part journey through the underworld and part midnight revelry.
Sam Reider will be premiering Too Hot To Sleep as an immersive live music and dance performance, Febuary 2018. More information soon!
