Hush Kids, the new collaboration between Nashville veterans Jill Andrews and Peter
Groenwald, released today their self-titled debut album via Tone Tree Music. Produced by Ian Fitchuk (of recent Kacey Musgraves
Golden Hour success), Hush Kids journeys across the unexpected, the strangeness of love rather than the sweetness, and the beauty of the world rather than the delirium.
Hush Kids is a friendship with music. It began long before it had a name, when two beloved Nashville artists with impressive solo careers were put together by their publishers to write songs for other people. In time, they discovered they had been writing for themselves all along. Their earliest sessions revealed more than chemistry, they revealed kindredness, an innate understanding that allowed two very different people to write some of the most deeply personal music of their careers. It pairs the effortless, addictive pop sensibility of The Carpenters
with the dusty, atmospheric, desert landscape of Robert Plant
Kraus's Americana classic Raising Sand.
Hush Kids began teasing their debut early this summer with the release of their lead single "Love Is A Made Up Word." It was followed shortly after by "What's Your Hurry," "Goodbye Rain," and "Morning Is Made" which American Songwriter called "a gently building folk song that finds its foundation in the delicate interplay between the two artists' vocals."
Instinctive vocal symmetry, captivating melodies, and intimate intelligent lyrics speak to the years of tireless craftmanship and well-earned successes by both artists respectively. A gifted composer/producer/musician, Peter
has toured extensively and shared the stage with artists such as The Civil Wars, Andrew Belle, and John Mayer. Jill, a founding member of alt/country favorites The Everybodyfields, has performed alongside The Avett Brothers, Willie Nelson, and Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors. She has also released two acclaimed solo albums, 2011's The Mirror and 2015's The War Inside, which NPR Music
called "a beautiful record."
Despite the name, Hush Kids is not about quiet, it's about stepping away from the wrong kind of noise to embrace the music.
