“T-Bone Burnett goes on a midnight drive with David Lynch”

“…an amazing body of work from the vocal sounds, the vocal performances, the arrangements, the production, the playing – all first class ! I loved it from beginning to end. Great choice of material, beautiful execution of parts, lovely texturing and superb mixes… what more can I say? This deserves tons of exposure.”

Terry Brown, producer/engineer

“The best covers reveal a depth or nuance only hinted at in the original. Hush and Rust do that beautifully. Their recordings remind you how great these songs are, and at the same time make you feel like you’ve never heard them before.”

– John Switzer, producer, musician

Lush yet rootsy. At times heart wrenching without becoming sentimental… a slight hint of irony that never gets clever. sweet T‘s voice is vulnerable and sweet but worldly; at times even a bit unsettling.
And the arrangements are spectacular.

Collaborators sweet T and brilliantfish filter their creative expression through the lens of collective experience to re-envision songs as soundtracks to films never made.

“Take a long, deep, delicious and dark bath in this beauty of a rendition (of I’m On Fire). The (Cam) MacInnes textures are so rich you won’t want dessert and they provide the perfect counterpart to a gorgeous, no punches pulled, delivery by the appropriately named sweet T.  What a joy!”

– Thomas Neuspiel, producer/engineer

– Stacey Dowswell, musician/songwriter
