Band name:

Who are you and where are you from?
All members reside in the Los Angeles area but we originally hail from all over the US. Jazmine Giovanni (singer) was born in Honolulu; both guitar players, Lee Landrum and Greg Pajer, were raised in Northern California but didn't know each other until THE HUSH was born. Andrew James (bass) has roots in Idaho while Blake Paulson (drums) is from Minnesota.

How would you describe the band/the music? 
Lee:  Everybody in THE HUSH has a lot of experience on and off stage.  It's great to work in a room full of pros, we get down to business quickly.
Jazmine:  Musically we are modern rock with an edge.

Who are your main influences musically?
Jazmine:  Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Prince, NIN, Amy Winehouse.
Lee:  All the guitar greats.  Steve Vai, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Watriani, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robin Trower. The list goes on.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
Jazmine:  We'd love, more than anything, to really outdo ourselves at every turn, growing as writers and expanding our creative capabilities.  

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Jazmine: There have been many. We receive such amazing feedback from the press and from the fans. Our highlight is really seeing the effect of our music and having the opportunity to share that.
Lee:  Once together, we took off and running really quickly. Within a matter of months we wrote new tunes, started playing shows in Hollywood and recorded our first EP. Going into our fourth year, we are still a relatively new band and are working on our first full length album and our next video. I'm really proud of the progress and material we've created so far and feel the biggest highlights are still in front of us.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Jazmine: I could do without playing small venues with horrific sound systems ever again. There's a few nights I'd like to forget. Granted, there is a certain charm in paying your dues in this way within a band, just not enough charm, sadly.

If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Lee: The fan favorite is still So Hollywood, off our EP, Scene of the Crime. That song has great guitar riffs, a catchy melody and really good lyrics. We've come a long way since recording that song but it still resonates with all.
