Kaye’s instrumentals take the lyrics to a new horizon, combining elements of many different musical genres into seamless journeys of sound. Taking cues from producers and artists such as Damon Albarn (Gorillaz), Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), Danger Mouse, and Hot Sugar, he adds his own touches picked up from years of working as a freelance writer, producer, and engineer in the city of Detroit. He records their songs in several different studios in the Detroit area, including a massive hundred-year-old church converted into a recording space. If you listen closely you can pick up on extremely small production details throughout the course of a Valley Hush song. His goal is to make their music sound like a detailed painting, with waves pushing through space to the listener’s ear, rather than brushstrokes to their eyes.
When performing live, the duo expands to a four-piece band to help fill out their sound and allows for their seamless production to take on a new skin. The inclusion of a full band pushes Valley Hush into raw and ferocious territory while still remaining tethered to their signature spacey, dreamscape vibe. They define success by their commitment of authenticity to their vision in hopes of inspiring many with their thoughtfully crafted aural landscape.
After performing at the 2016 Middle of the Map Fest in Kansas City they signed to festival curators own label The Record Machine. Valley Hush has released 2 previous independent EP’s and is currently putting the final touches on their mesmerizing self-titled debut full-length album to be released late 2016.

WE KNOW. It’s lame. But we promise we won’t use the information to set up a dystopian future deathmatch where we throw you into a pit with another designer and see who can typeset faster.
