Info

Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Christopher Kush (rhymes with 'push'). Band is Data Recovery Project

Recommended if you like: Nine Inch Nails, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, New Order

Story behind your band/artist name: We are an electronic band that explores dark subject matter in a way that incorporates dance beats. Data Recovery Project signals the electronic and EDM aspects but also plays on the inner explorations of the subject matter.

Band Members: Christopher Kush (keyboards/vocals), Daniel Hill (keyboards/guitar/vocals). Possibly, a character called Stanley (see below.)

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Current home base is NW DC for Christopher

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1. We are headlining the locally-legendary Fort Reno concert series this Thursday. This is our first gig out of doors. 
2. Early on Data Recovery Project covered the song "Victim of Love" by Erasure -- and the band gave a shout out to it in their weekly online newsletter. 
3. We created the screens we use in our live video show ourselves working with custom cut plexiglass, frosted coating, and a short throw projector. We would like to say that the music so far has been the most exciting thing coming out of the band, but the video show is a close second.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Daniel is currently upset because when he started working with Data Recovery Project, we created a character called Stanley, an astronaut who had been abandoned in space but has finally made it back to earth to find it destroyed. Our songs were a way for Stanley to put the backstory together on stage. The only problem was that I could not see anything, including my electronics, and the astronaut helmet did not help. After having people guide me around onstage and missing cues, knocking thing over, I blurted out that Stanley had died. Daniel is still pissed off about that. Now, I appear as a scientist with splash goggles on, but Daniel refuses to recognize my credentials.
