Raised in the Chicago suburbs, Kushner pursued music seriously after graduating high school. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, the self-taught musician and social media influencer honed his songwriting skills, and in 2022 he released "Miserable Man." Earnest, sad, and soulful, the song went viral, earning Kushner a substantial international audience and a record deal with Virgin. Later that year, the song appeared on his debut EP, Footprints I Found, which also included the streaming hits "Burn" and "Mr. Forgettable." Co-written with Hayden Robert Hubers, Jeremy Fedryk, and Josh Bruce Williams, Kushner kicked off 2023 with the dulcet "Daylight, " which elicited comparisons to Hozier and Bon Iver. ~ James Christopher Monger
