The Hypsys
The Hypsys Ever since their inception in 2007, The Hypsys have been hard at work crafting a dynamic and unique identity in a music scene that all too often falls prey to stagnation. Their singular style that they describe as "progressive-jazz-rock-fusion-soul-funk" is the result of a synthesis of intensive education rooted in classical composition and jazz studies (all three graduated from the University of Alabama's School of Music) coupled with a diverse array of influences running the gamut of the musical spectrum. Characterized by intricate time changes, stunning displays of technical virtuosity, and raunchy breakdowns, all executed with impeccable communication, their music is ever-evolving and never lets you go. Formed in Tuscaloosa and now based in Birmingham, The Hypsys have been relentlessly touring the Southeast, honing their innovative and exhilarating live sound for a loyal and ever-expanding fan base. They have performed with many respected national touring acts such as Col. Bruce Hampton and the Quark Alliance, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, The Mantras, Moon Taxi, Lubriphonic, and many more. They made their first major festival appearance at the 2010 Wakarusa Music Festival and have played at numerous regional festivals.
