The Hush Sound’s journey began in 2005 in the way most young bands do: as a group of friends playing together in their parent’s basement after high school. Songwriters Bob Morris and Greta Morgan would write their quirky piano and guitar driven pop songs in between Greta’s homework sessions and Bob’s duty as a lifeguard at the local swimming pool. After writing a batch of songs, the two were joined by drummer Darren Wilson and bass player Chris Faller, other locals in the Chicago music scene.
It’s been eight years since The Hush Sound started playing together at those DIY spaces across Chicagoland. But the energy and soul of the band – the honesty and character that made them your favorite band to begin with – remain unchanged. And since the band connected to start touring again in 2013, The Hush Sound will continue playing live shows and is slated to release new music in 2013.
