The reason behind the name is because I have yet to share my work so far with most of my close friends. I don’t care if they manage to find them at one point, but when they do, I hope for the experience to feel like they’ve found, at the least, an okay book or an artwork or what have you from a “hidden shelf” in a corner. – Minji Kong

Not everything with social media is bad. This past weekend, we happened to be directed to Philadelphia project The Hidden Shelf, the moniker of singer/songwriter Minji Kong, through Tyler Andre. To say we instantly connected would be an understatement, as we haven’t stopped spinning it since. The three tracks that comprise Cut It Short a Year Ago could easily stand on their own individual merit, but collectively showcase an artist slowly coming to her own identity on top of an already robust catalog of music that spans only to the middle of last year. The songs are subtle in delivery, but nuanced in their construction as small notes of sound are precisely woven together creating a bubble of emotion and introspection. It goes without saying, we can’t wait to hear more.
