Biography

BLUSH's music is full of contradiction, not unlike the title of their debut album "CROWDED ALONE".

Drawing inspiration from some of the world's finest writers of pop and rock, the band successfully managed to create a sound that is truly unique. A cocktail blend of Zeppelin, King’s-X, Peter Gabriel and other influences make each song a journey unto itself. From the beautiful melodies of “Trip Your On”, to the screaming war sirens of “Numb”, the songs diversity are credible in emotion, melody and thought content. The tongue in cheek wit of “Things Best Left Unsaid” tempers the biting social commentary of (their first single) “Word From The Wise”, only to land on the cold logic of “Basic Physics”.

After winning Power 97's Class of 2003, BLUSH headed into the studio with Juno-award winning producer Brandon Friesen, and found themselves on the receiving end of some strong local buzz which, solidified by the Power 97 endorsement, quickly spread. Friesen's renowned production skills fit in perfectly with the band's rich rock'n'roll soundscapes, tapping into the depth and emotion each song.

BLUSH retained the services of Bobby Gale of Plug Canada and Howard Rosen Promotion (CA, NY) to promote the first single "Word From The Wise" to a North American audience. The reception was very encouraging, as it was added to no less than 130 Canadian and US radio stations, charting on several. (#1 in St. Louis!)

BLUSH recently signed a worldwide licensing deal with Rammit/Sextant and soon will be touring extensively in support of the release of their debut album, “Crowded Alone”.

Lyrics

Word From The Wise

Written By: BLUSH / Glen Davies

And then along came the righteous to tell me how I live
Provide me with all the questions to turn me deep within
Although I tried not to show the mental state I’m in
Point out the face of the holy foe, the face of sin

A man, a plan on a mission into the abyss
Sail to a holy war where ignorance is bliss
We’ll tame these savages to receive Mary’s kiss
We’ll vaccinate you full of all you have missed

We’re on your side
We’re filled with pride
When all hope dies
Word from the wise

Six days of evolution to spin around the sun
Published a story book but left out how it’s done
They broke into factions, he never could please everyone
Beat out the holy foe in all your bretheren

Book Of Age

Written By: BLUSH / Glen Davies

Five million years
Was all it took to build a landslide
And though slowly
Mother nature takes her time
A change in the weather by design

Shifting the gears
Empires fall, tears of laughter
And then powers change hands
Landscapes refine

Just another page
From the book of age
All the love and the rage
On a world wide stage

And the walls come crumbling down
As you read remember history repeats

Just another page
From the book of age
All the love and the rage
Humanity’s naked on a worldwide stage

Just another page
From the book of age
All the love and the rage
On a world wide stage
Just another page
From the book of age
All the love and the rage
Humanity is naked on a worldwide stage

Fall from grace

Written By: Glen Davies


Mortal bone, victim to vices
Your paper skin is wearing thin
When all you’ve sewn has been shredded to slices
Stuck with needles and pins

So I rise into space
To catch your fall from Grace
Crowded, alone
A weight you’ve always known…

Your hunger for flesh, vacant of compassion
Open wide; I’ll crawl inside.
For just one girl with queues around the corner
On the wake that you ride

So I rise into space
To catch your fall from Grace
Crowded, alone
A weight you’ve seldom known

And I see you wasting by yourself
Are you on your own with fading health?
Can I ease your pain do you need my help
I can’t bear to watch you bleed…
