played at the TRAX-concert at Underværket in
Randers on 22. February 2001, an unknown local duo did the warm-up job. The duo
was called Hush and it should take another 3½ years before
their debut album, A Lifetime, was released.
On 29. January
they performed at Rust for an entusiastic audience. It was the first
concert with those three backing musicians listed below.
gave most of the songs from their 2004 debut album, and six previously unreleased
songs, Summer's Day, A Little Bit Late, Time
To Pray, Horses, Don't Wanna Lose You and
Ease The Pain. The latter song was brand new, as it was just finished
the week before!
Leadsinger Dorthe Gerlach has the same stage
charisma as Freya and Pernille Rosendahl: you can't
help falling slightly in love with this angel-faced beauty, whether you're a male
or a female.
Unfortunately the stage was showered in red spotlights, which
made it almost impossible to make proper pics, but anyway they played some fantastic
I would call their music style country-pop, - more like Shania
Twain than Dolly Parton. It's a kind of music that makes
you happy, and thus appeals to a lot of people.
I was pleased to see that
the band did not perform in traditional country'n'western out-fit, because
I believe that it's very important that Hush are not promoting
their music as country-, rather than pop-music. I don't think that the Danish
audience are ready for country'n'western. The music of Hush is on
a too high level only to be bought by truckdrivers from the gas stations!
think that Hush has large appeal in the Future and five Danish
Music Awards nominations in 2005 confirmes that statement.

01. Summer's Day
