The Hushes 'Black Betty' Ep and Single Launch Featuring special guests The Timbers. Bringing their trademark brand of acerbic wit, enough smouldering tension to set a small house on fire and whole bunch of new badass tunes, The Hushes head to the Gov to launch their latest EP and single 'Black Betty'.
Combining the talents of blues maestro Cal Williams Jr, acclaimed Jazz double bassist Kory Horwood, sultry chanteuse Emily Davis and silver fingered banjo player Ben Timbers, The Hushes revive and reinterpret the enduring sounds of the Appalachian Mountains, bluegrass, gospel, and folk music. Their acclaimed musicianship and thrilling on-stage chemistry are taking audiences by storm.
Formed in late in November 2011 The Hushes wasted no time writing a prolific series of works in a manner of weeks. Within the month they stepped into Anthony Stewart's local 'Red Brick Studio' and live tracked their LP debut album 'Cold River Blues' in only 16 hours. The record, (in only its 4th week of release) is already sitting at #3 on 3D radio's charts, and receiving airplay on Triple RRR, Byron Bay FM, and Eastside FM.
Amidst the sweaty solos and twisted humour, you'll hear smooth 4 part harmonies, and enough pickin' pluckin' and drinkin' to bring the most submerged inner-yokel to the surface.
'...impressive four part harmonies, foot-stomping, clapping, and engaging between-song banter make up a class act that provides a great night's entertainment. Final Word: Smokin'..' Adrian Miller, Rip It Up
'...a musical achievement of importance to the Australian music scene. Imagine four balladeers travelling from town to town bringing fine musical entertainment to each whistle-stop on the way....you've got it...The Hushes.' Blues from the Bay, Ken Hughes
