After developing his sound in New York City and New Orleans, Adrian Hibbs graces Los Angeles with his pop-funk-soul sensibilities. As a versatile keyboard player and colorful arranger, his style is a concoction of rhythm, blues, funk, pop and saturated soul. He’s toured internationally with such shows and acts as Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Isabelle Day, MTV Awards, Summer Sonic Fest, Singfest, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is, Voodoo Fest, Carson Daily, Dashboard Confessional, The Cab & Plain White T’s and Panic! at the Disco. He released a self-titled EP “The Adrian Hibbs Project” in NYC produced by Scotty Hard (Wutang, MMW, Boogie Down Productions) and will release another EP “You’re Invited” in Fall 2011 with master drummer James Gadson. His musical influences run the gamut from Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Sly & the Family Stone to the Glenn Miller Big Band.
