Chris Sernel (aka Oh Hush!) Signs to Nettwerk Music Group Publishing
February 4, 2019 BY Nettwerk
Nettwerk Music Group Publishing is excited to announce the signing of Chris Sernel (aka Oh Hush!), a Grammy-nominated, Juno-winning songwriter, producer and artist with multiple Gold and Platinum records.
Chris started out as the front-man for the Chicago-based band Escape from Earth, who toured with such artists as Switchfoot, Breaking Benjamin, and Disturbed, among others. As his band started to wind down, Chris began to focus more on pop and alternative leaning projects and launched a new artist called Oh, Hush!. The project quickly took off with the radio success of their single “Going Down In Style.”
After multiple conversations and offers from major labels, Chris ultimately decided that songwriting and production was his future, and Oh, Hush!–the writer/producer–was born. As his career developed, Oh, Hush! worked with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Cee Lo Green, and Jason Derulo, cementing him as a “go-to” producer in the pop world. With a bit of renewed focus on his personal artistry, Oh, Hush! landed his songs in the ending credits of LEGO Batman and LEGO Ninjago. Then, in 2018, he scored a cut with Weezer’s single “Happy Hour,” which became a top 10 song at alternative radio. It didn’t take long for the film and TV world to take notice, and Oh, Hush! became the behind-the-scenes guy for brands such as Dunkin Donuts, Wal-Mart, Nutella and many others.
Regarding his signing to Nettwerk Music Group Publishing, Oh, Hush! says, “I’ve been blessed with many wonderful opportunities in my career, and I feel like the opportunity to work with the folks at Nettwerk is another. I couldn’t be more excited to have a team like this as I take the next steps in my career.”
“Nettwerk is thrilled to link up with such an accomplished writer, both in respect to landing major cuts and his many film and TV placements, and we’re optimistic that we can bring many other opportunities to the table,” says Mark Jowett, President of Nettwerk Music Group Publishing.
