ABOUT HUSH CRUSH
"It was a candy land full of neon saucers and magical monsters that came to play..."
Influenced by a swirl of the iconic popular music of the last few decades, high-energy San Francisco band Hush Crush aims to bring beautiful, vibrant, danceable jams to the scene. In love with soul, funk, folk rock, the disco of the 70s, the cheesy synth-pop of the 80s, the ironic lyrics of the 90s… but also what ties it all together: the craft of lyric and songwriting, entertaining live performance, recording and production, and the desire to celebrate and have a good time.
With playful lyrics and melodically distinct compositions, weaved with elastic vocal stylings ranging from sassy to ethereal, Hush Crush's songs about life, love, interstellar travel and psychedelic adventures transport listeners, as one fan said, "…to another time and place, where your inhibitions fade away and you're footloose and fancy-free". Hush Crush draws musical inspiration from greats like Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Prince, along with more contemporary artists like Anderson.Paak, Jamiroquai and Gary Clark Junior.

with parents that dedicated weekend mornings to blues and r&b music, Ryan developed and mastered laying down phat bass grooves. With his own Dad being a bass player, and Ryan being inspired by west coast g-funk music while growing up in Rochester, Minnesota, he came to find that he had to be "all about that bass, 'bout that bass."
