"The Biz"

One of the perks of covering the new Welsh music scene just now is the amount of raw talent emerging. I could reel off the names of at least a dozen bands currently unsigned who should have a deal and so it takes a special talent to make me drop whatever I’m doing to give it my undivided attention. However, Jade Evans (West) is blessed with a voice that could stop a juggernaut on black ice in mid skid, possessing as it does a timbre that brings to mind the great torch singers of old like Dusty Springfield. She fronts a band called ‘Levin’ who are currently the subject of some fairly frenzied attention within the industry, particularly around their South Walian stamping ground. Hardly surprising that given the quintet have crossover potential that is awesome and built around the twin disciplines of writing classic songs and performing live shows that shimmer with in and incandescence that is irresistible.’

"Here come the Hush"

‘Whilst deriving inspiration from wide and diverse host of genres, The Hush retain a unique style that is both dynamic and exciting. With excellent vocals and a superb musical backdrop, I predict that this band will go far’
Mike Bennett – Record producer, remixer and writer, December 07 - Stage life


"Columbia Publishing"

‘Despite the ups and downs of the music industry there is always room for new, fresh and original songs, in fact more so now than ever. Evans and West are extremely talented songsmiths that will be much sought after in the years to some. The release of ‘Something About Me’ is a great boost to the music industry in Wales.’
Daffyd Gittins – Director, Columbia Publishing Wales (CPW), June 2004 - Songwriters Guild Magazine

Bio

Out of the silence came the mighty ‘Hush’ ……………..

· Jade, Tom and Emma met in February 2002 when they formed original band LEVIN

· By this point Jade had already won 12 major national talent competitions, appeared in many T.V shows including her own TV show for HTV called ‘Jade's Journey.' She even had the privilege of performing at the Lyceum Theatre, London for HRH Prince Charles 50th Birthday bash! Jade was truly qualified to be Levin’s ultimate rock n roll front person!!!

· A great few years followed, touring around the country including Barfly’s, the legendary TJ’s which led to recording in the famous ‘Rockfield’ studios, Monmouth after being spotted and funded by producer Nick Brine and Guigsy (ex bass player from Oasis).

· Jade and Tom’s songwriting talents paid off in the shape of a publishing contract with ‘Columbia Publishing Wales’ and penning the opening track on the debut album for Swiss Pop Idol winner, Carmen Fenk. This was released by Universal and went platinum in a couple of weeks.

· In January 2006 the formidable threesome reformed with other musicians to create covers band ‘Kozmic Drive’. This proved the ultimate apprenticeship as they toured the country once more for 6 months, sometimes performing up to 5 times a week. During this time they expanded their fanbase and won over audiences from all walks of life and ages. They continued to write their own material and gained inspiration from people and places they encountered on their travels.

· Jade, Tom and Emma have been compared to many of the greats over the years the most recurring being Dusty Springfield (Jade), Jimi Hendrix (Tom) and Suzi Quatro (Emma) – how’s that for the ultimate rock and roll band!?!

· In November 2007, The Hush was born after their passion for great songs and outstanding talent was spotted by prestigious record producer, remixer and writer Mike Bennett, whose credits include The Fall, Ian Brown, Bob Marley, Wishbone Ash, The Stranglers, amongst many others and along with established engineer Angus Wallace (Prodigy, The Fall) offered to make the ultimate album with them!!

· The album features other great talents such as Diane Charlemagne on backing vocals (Moby, Urban Cookie Collective), Steve Rodford on drums and percussion (Zombies, The Kinks) and Tony Robinson on piano and brass (Beautiful South, Robbie Williams, Toploader)

· The Hush are going on tour early this year with Steve Harley and the Cockney Rebel and have already had a song from the album snapped up for a new movie soundtrack
