HEZUS formed in San Diego, CA in 2008; comprised of husband and wife team Ian (drums,vox) and Doreen (keys, vox). The two first met while working at an all-ages concert venue and discovering a shared affection for psychedelia-infused rock, they (along with Tiffany Huang) formed in January 2005 under the name of War&Cinema. The trio grew into a quintet and began playing around town, opening for Dengue Fever, Gris Gris, and Akron/Family. With an ever-changing lineup and differing (musical) directions, War&Cinema dissolved.

The name HEZUS - pronounced He's us - represents the belief that the music they write comes from God the creator of all things; though they are quick to point out that they are not a Christian band, but rather Christians who just so happen to be musicians.

While they are most influenced by 60's & 70's underground music: psychedelic, electronic, jazz and library film scores, their sound can't quite be pinned down to a particular genre. Their output jumps from one style to another; reinforcing HEZUS' goal to simply play what they want to hear, have fun, and positively affect people in the process.
