Sound description: Soulful R&B covers.
RIYL: Soulful R&B
Influences: Soulful R&B
Crush does soulful R&B covers. In August 2007, the band won $4000 in Viejas’s ultimate cover band contest.
According to their website, “This 7-to-9-piece show band seamlessly blends [a] hip, modern edge with a classic, traditional style that will appeal to any audience...The key to Crush’s concert-level performance is a completely live band backing their front line up, which are clearly three of the most beautiful, talented, and sought after young vocalists to come out of Southern California. These lovely young divas are the real deal...Each girl brings a different flavor to the act covering all ranges of musical styles. Their rock songs feel like rock songs, R&B ballads are sung with the same emotion and talent as Mariah or Whitney could deliver.
“We feature five girl lead singers, each with their own unique sound and style, but we only perform with three at a time. We choose who performs what show based on the event and the style of the music required.”
Although they have disbanded, the ladies of Crush are currently working on original music.
