In an industry riddled with fly by night talent and overnight sensations, it becomes harder to differentiate what is trendy and what is timeless. With their ability to cross genres seamlessly, and their uncanny talent for melody and lyric writing. The Crushboys have given their answer, ‘We are supposed to be here’.

New aged talent with boundless appeal, The Crushboys have an aptness for writing catchy, melody driven records that connect with the listener instantaneously. Modeling their writing after musical influences such as: The Clutch, Max Martin, The Dream, James Fauntleroy, and Freddie Mercury;The Crushboys have tailored a sound that is both exclusive and refreshing.

Originally from Hamden, Connecticut. The Crushboys connected by happenstance on the University of Hartford campus in late 2007. Since then, Zach and AJ have worked nonstop to solidify themselves as the next go-to-writers of all genres. Following their charting success overseas with Blake Mcgrath’s “Stage Fright”, The Crushboys found themselves working with industry elite, as well as being featured in publications such as ASCAP’s ‘On The Come Up’ and Singersroom. It is with this drive and ambition that they found themselves hungry for more than what the small town of Hamden could provide; and decided to move to the Los Angeles for better opportunity.

Currently residing in Los Angeles, The Crushboys have been continuing to grow musically, as well as creating a viable brand for themselves. They live with the mantra that, “hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.” With that being said, they have been working around the clock to out work everyone else in the industry. It is their insatiable appetite for more that will differentiate this writing team from the rest, and make them staples for future creatives.
