About Hush Harbor

A short-lived blip on the Pacific Northwest indie scene, Hush Harbor contained the roots of several other bands, most prominently emo notables 764-HERO. Formed in Seattle, Hush Harbor was a trio consisting of vocalist/guitarist John Atkins, bassist John Wickhart, and drummer Andy Rohrmann. Atkins was a veteran of the local scene and several prior bands (though not grungesters Seaweed, who featured a different bass player of the same name). Drawing from angsty emo and indie minimalists from Beat Happening to Low, Hush Harbor began to develop a following in Seattle, but abruptly disbanded before ever making a record. Seeking to rectify that situation, Up Records approached the band about reuniting in the studio to document their music; they agreed, resulting in a self-titled EP released in 1995. By that time, Atkins had already moved on to 764-Hero, and would also start playing concurrently in the Magic Magicians starting in 2000. Wickhart would later join post-grungesters Mavis Piggott, and Rohrmann made a few solo recordings under the name Scientific American. ~ Steve Huey
