In his performances, Rush allows his audience to plot the course of his show by passing around a song list containing more than 500 songs that he knows by heart and then taking requests. He incorporates a guitar “loop,” which allows him to record his sound and play a lead over it. His writing influences include Mark Knopfler, Paul Simon, Tom Petty and Neil Young.
Rush has released three CDs: “Always Touring, Songs from the Road” and “They Don’t Know My Name.” He was a finalist for Favorite Special Event Music Entertainer by CampusAwards.com.
“I write some songs with some real depth to them, but my goal as a performer is to help people have a good time,” Rush said. “If I’m lucky, maybe I can make them think a little in the process.”
