New York based producer/vocalist/remixer Vicki Bell and Boston based keyboardist Peter Adams stepped out of their day jobs and combined their influences and energies  to create Open Door, an open-ended, genre defying merging of jazz, rock, organically danceable grooves, electronica sensibilities and soulful classic keyboard melodies.  Originally conceived as a studio project, the pair recorded two singles for Vicki’s HipBone imprint “Lights” and the follow-up “Get Into You” which caught the attention of Stevie “Sole” Middleton and Chris Harris at Solemusic.  So enthralled with the fusion of this collaboration, Middleton convinced the duo to realize this project into a full-length album.

Who’s Behind Door #1 reflects the pair’s wide range of musical touchstones and reference points.  Peter Adams is a well respected and sought after keyboardist, playing everything from jazz gigs (Hiram Bullock, Kenwood Dennard, Julian Coryell); to blues and R&B (Bill Sims, Mighty Sam McLain) to Broadway shows. In more recent years, Peter has been focusing on rock and roll and can be seen and heard with the likes of Juliana Hatfield, Tracy Bonham and Kay Hanley (from Letters to Cleo).

Peter’s introduction to electronic music started as a teenager in the early eighties, playing electronic keyboards and making 4 track recordings; writing, programming, singing, and playing guitar and keyboards, influenced by everything from Prince and Depeche Mode to Kraftwerk and the Art of Noise. Later, he studied jazz intently at the Berklee College of Music and before moved to NYC in 1991. 

HipBone Records co-founder and producer/writer/vocalist Vicki Bell began recording and performing live in the 80’s with Freestyle groups such as The Girls Club (on Select/Active Records) and Three of Hearts (on Cutting Records). This led to the same with underground notables in New York including TUBA, World Style Productions, Coati Mundi, Natural Flavors, Alexis P. Suter, Glenn Turner, and Children of Planet Earth.

A dancer and singer in her own right, Vicki’s performance break came with the completion of her scholarship at The Alvin Ailey American Dance Center. She starred in and toured nationally and internationally with productions such as A Chorus Line and West Side Story.

Release Date: June 11, 2002
