The Hush Sound is an indie quartet originating in Lisle, Illinois. Initially named "The Hush," the band later changed their name to "The Hush Sound" due to the discovery of a rapper with the same name. [ [http://www.sweettangerine.net/band/thehush.php The Hush Sound] SweetTangerine.net (accessed April 10, 2007)] The band consists of Bob Morris on vocals and guitar, Chris Faller on bass and vocals, Darren Wilson on drums and vocals, and Greta Salpeter on vocals and piano.

In 2005, the band released their first studio album "So Sudden". Their second studio album, "Like Vines", was released in 2006 under the independent record label, Fueled by Ramen. Their third album, "Goodbye Blues", was recorded in October and November 2007 in Los Angeles and was released March 18, 2008. [ [http://www.thehushsound.com] Official website ]

History

The Hush Sound was founded by Greta Salpeter and Bob Morris. The two met when Greta was in 7th grade and while Bob was in 10th. Bob had always been a player and performer of rock music, whereas Greta was a classical pianist.

The band officially formed in late 2004/early 2005, while writing songs they felt worthy of publication. In their early work, the band dealt mostly with acoustic music. Once the band decided that a piano and guitar were not enough for the sound it wished to achieve, the band members started searching for a drummer and a bass player willing to join their band. They soon recruited bassist Chris Faller and drummer Darren Wilson who had played in a previous band together, "Until Sundown."

By the end of March 2005, The Hush Sound took its music into the studio to record their debut full-length album. The studio was the Gallery of Carpet located in Villa Park, IL run by owner Brian Zieske. They named it "So Sudden;" a reflection on how quickly things were moving for the band. They released their first album with no label support at the time, but nevertheless sold 300 CDs in two nights.

Five months later, the band began performing live. Shortly thereafter, the group gained the attention of Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz. On the day they were streaming "So Sudden" on purevolume, Ryan Ross of Panic at the Disco discovered their page and passed it along to Pete Wentz. Wentz, liking what he heard, sent The Hush Sound an email, stating that he was interested in signing them to his Decaydance Records label.

The Hush Sound was soon signed to Decaydance Records. "So Sudden" was re-released under that label (with some minor lyric changes), and the band immediately immersed itself in writing mode for its second album. "Like Vines" was recorded in March of 2006 over the course of three weeks with producer Sean O' Keefe and co-producer Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.

Tours

The band's first major tour was the 2006 "Black Clouds and Underdogs" spring arena tour with headliners Fall Out Boy and The All-American Rejects, and supporting acts Hawthorne Heights and From First to Last. Later that year on June 6, 2006, their second full length album "Like Vines" was released. In support of the new record, the band went on a summer tour with label mates Panic at the Disco. The band took a month-long break before beginning another tour with Jack's Mannequin, Copeland, and Daphne Loves Derby. Their final tour of the year took place in November, when the group embarked on their first headlining tour. They were supported by opening acts This Providence, This Is Me Smiling, and Murder By Death.

On March 7, 2007 The Hush Sound began a co-headline tour with Straylight Run, supported by Spitalfield and Pablo. The Hush Sound also toured with Boys Like Girls and headliner Hellogoodbye. Destinations included the Wiltern in Los Angeles, The Warfield in San Francisco, and other cities and venues. They have also played with Plain White T's at the DuPage County Fair in Illinois on July 26th.

On August 12, 2007 they began a co-headlining tour with Rooney and guest Hello Stranger.

On December 27, 2007, The Hush Sound played as a supporting act at "A Very Ludo Christmas 2007", other bands that played were Nothing Still, Quietdrive and the headliners of the night, Ludo

The Hush Sound also headlined a tour which ran from February 29th until March 18th 2008.

They just finished supporting Panic At The Disco in the Honda Civic Tour along with Motion City Soundtrack and Phantom Planet. The last show of this tour was in Anaheim, California on June 14th, 2008.

In the summer of 2008, they headlined the "Dance Across the Country Tour," supported by The Cab, The Morning Light, and Steel Train.

In the fall of 2008, The Hush Sound will be touring Japan with The Academy Is... as part of the Decaydance Fest, following which they will tour with OneRepublic, Augustana, and Spill Canvas on Tag This Tour!

Goodbye Blues

At recent shows, The Hush Sound have performed new songs that appear on Goodbye Blues: "Honey", "Molasses", "As You Cry", "Love You Much Better", "Medicine Man", and "The Boys Are Too Refined". They recorded with producer Kevin Augunas, whom they met while on the SXSW tour. (Augunas's last producing work was with Cold War Kids.) Morris stated on the band's official website that the band was "extremely impressed" with the "positive force" of Augunas.

The album was released on March 18, 2008, but was leaked a few days earlier. The song "Medicine Man" can be heard in commercials for the TV series Grey's Anatomy and the TV series House while the song "Hurricane" can be heard in commercials for The Young and the Restless.
