HUSH sprouted up out of almost nothing: a weekend, some songs, some friends, a beige Apple computer, and a whole lot of enthusiasm in 1998. It started on the corner of NW Flanders and Everett in Portland Oregon, in a street level loft apartment where Chad Crouch lived and hosted emerging artist’s exhibitions. It started without a business plan and maybe fifty bucks. It started with time and potential and the kind of spirit of endeavor that soaks into your bones, leaving you forever changed. Looking back, maybe that’s why HUSH is alive and kicking and essential as ever.
