John Cushing – Electronic Press Kit – For internal use only


John Cushing is a Songwriter who, if not arranging music for a 19-piece Big Band, is still bearing minimal and matter of fact lyrics and grooves but in other smaller forms. You will feel something! It’s a blend of indie and world folk music styles like Jazz and Samba. It is kinda sad, yet very hopeful. In a live setting you will witness music that can make you feel witnessed. In recordings you will find seeds of smiles.
