The Hush Sound

The Hush Sound first began as a casual pastime when longtime friends Bob Morris and Greta Salpeter began playing music together for fun during their free time. Introduced by mutual friends (Bob a sophomore in high school and Greta only in seventh grade), they were an unlikely musical combination: he had been in rock bands since age 12 and she was a classically trained pianist since age 3. �I had horrible stage fright at first,� Greta admits, but Bob wasn�t about to let her quit. �He told me that I have talent and that I needed to pursue my passion, music, and we started writing songs t ...read more

The Hush Sound first began as a casual pastime when longtime friends Bob Morris and Greta Salpeter began playing music together for fun during their free time. Introduced by mutual friends (Bob a sophomore in high school and Greta only in seventh grade), they were an unlikely musical combination: he had been in rock bands since age 12 and she was a classically trained pianist since age 3. �I had horrible stage fright at first,� Greta admits, but Bob wasn�t about to let her quit. �He told me that I have talent and that I needed to pursue my passion, music, and we started writing songs together after that..

It wasn�t until winter of 2004/05 that the band started writing seriously. Originally an acoustic/piano duo, The Hush (later adding the �Sound� after finding out a rapper shared the name) decided to branch out and try their hand at adding drums and bass. Coincidentally around the same time, Darren Wilson and Chris Faller, friends from another local Chicago band, were looking for a new band to play with. Bob got in contact with Darren and jammed out about 5 or 6 songs that would later be a part of their first album. �At first, it was only Darren who joined the band,� Bob explains, �Chris on the other hand, was hesitant..

The band went on to play their first show as a three-piece in a friend�s basement. The next day before watching the tape of the performance, Darren invited Chris to come watch it with the band. Chris was impressed with what he saw and ended up coming out to a practice a few days later. There was immediate chemistry and by the end of February, Chris had joined The Hush Sound and left the other two bands he was in at the time. The lineup was complete.
