Biography
The brainchild of Hush Records president Chad Crouch, this group originally began after being asked to perform at a friend's wedding reception. Consisting of everything from jazz and rock to bossa nova and pop, Blanket Music continued to perform around Portland, OR. Compared often to Belle and Sebastian as well as Nick Drake, Blanket Music released its debut effort, Nice in 2000 on Hush Records. A split EP with Noise for Pretend was well received by both press and fans. Blanket Music also released a split EP with Reclinerland. In 2002, the band rounded its sound by adding two female vocalists, Corrina Repp and Esperanza Spalding; they released Move in 2002. ~ Jason MacNeil, Rovi
