The Hush Now is from Boston, MA and features singer/songwriters Noel Kelly, Barry Marino, Adam Quane and Pat MacDonald. The band is set to release their fourth studio album in September 2014 entitled Sparkle Drive. Their previous albums have drawn comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, and Guided By Voices respectively, and also received praise from the UK Telegraph, Ryan's Smashing Life, Magnet Magazine, BBC 6 DJ Steve Lamacq, and PopMatters who called them " a turbo-charged local version of The Smiths."
The band is confirmed for CMJ 2014. Full list of dates and venues to be announced soon.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
