The Band

Mysterious Face is a Seattle-based band comprised of Chris Brush, Richard Gilbert, Steve Brush and Reid Parker. 

Chris and Richard met at the Media Studies program at SUNY Buffalo and started writing music together two years later in Rochester while both worked at a commercial video and audio studio near downtown. The songs Mind of Paul, Cedar, and Sunshine were written at this time.

After moving to Seattle, Chris joined with his brother Steve and drummer Reid Parker. Soon after, Richard joined them and became Mysterious Face. The band performed their brand of introspective, surreal, power pop at various venues around Seattle such as Nectar Lounge, the High Dive, and the Comet. Reid Parker left the group in 2008, and Steve Brush moved to New York. Mysterious Face continues today with Chris and Richard.
