Blushh is what you get after your bjillionthth quarter life crisis: when you realize you've been sitting in the corner your whole life watching the party happen from afar, never saying a word about how you felt, or standing up to grab the last cupcake. Blushh is what you really mean when you shrug it off and say "it's fine", when you roll your eyes and deal with it. Blushh is what you've been wanting to yell at the top of your lungs, but never had the guts to.
Blushh is the project of Shab Ferdowsi who writes fuzzy guitar pop songs about the plants in her bedroom and the like.
Made up of friends, Blushh is a four-piece band all living, playing, and eating $1 tacos in Los Angeles, CA.
Blushh is Shab. Shab is a self-proclaimed "hyper-creative" born and raised in Los Angeles. She got the music bug by blogging about bands in 2013, which turned into her booking local bands, which turned into booking tours for said bands, then touring with those bands, then eventually turned into her starting her own band.
Shab started writing songs in 2015, and decided to start the project thanks to her friends' encouragement the following year. She bought her first electric guitar in August 2016 and a couple months later she played her first full band show.
The live band is still a revolving lineup of friends, while the project has remained Shab’s (first) solo foray into songwriting.
It’s a little fuzzy around the edges, a little sad at first sight, but punchy melodies and bouncy hooks keep your heads bopping at the first show.
Blushh has recorded two 5 song EP’s at Hotel London, a studio in Silver Lake, Los Angeles run by Shab’s buds, Yianni Anastos-Prastacos and Arieh Berl.
It’s Fine was released in June 2016. The second, “Thx 4 asking” will be out late this spring.
