Terry Hsieh is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and session arranger from Durham, North Carolina who currently lives and works in Taiwan. He graduated in 2012 from Oberlin College and Conservatory under the tutelage of the great Robin Eubanks.​ He founded the Beijing Blue Note Jazz Orchestra in 2016, as well as the modern jazz septet The Terry Hsieh Collective. Currently, he leads the Spice Cabinet, a multi-genre funk/jazz/electronic ensemble, as well as continuing to serve as a session arranger and recording artist across Asia.

He has recorded for and performed with notable artists across Asia that include:

Karen Mok 莫文蔚 Tan Weiwei 谭维维 Tia Ray 袁娅维

A-Lin 黄丽玲 Chris Lee 李宇春 Matzka 

Leah Dou 窦靖童 Sue 苏运莹 Tizzy Bac 鐵支貝克

Mr Miss 先生小姐 Sam Lee 李聖傑 Terry Lin林志炫


and many others


Hsieh leads the 11-piece instrumental pop/funk/jazz ensemble "The Spice Cabinet" which combines jazz-inspired instrumental improvisation with the familiar sounds of pop music to create genre-bending takes on classic songs, informally called "Deathbop".

Awarded the City Weekend 2016 Editor's Choice Award for Band of the Year, SpiceCab (as they are informally known) is a dance party of wild energy and abandon.

Their freshman album “Full Metal Spice Packet” condenses the rabid energy of a two-hour show into a there-and-back car drive-length album packed with dance music and slow jams. With an international vision of modern music,


Hsieh and SpiceCab meld Funk, Bebop, Fusion, R&B, Classical and even Spaghetti Western cinema together to form a musical worldview that is epic in its playful and rambunctious explorations of culture, style and composition in their forthcoming release "The Adventures of Pie Boy"
