Art in the Afternoon: Max Hatt & Edda Glass
Max Hatt / Edda Glass features an unmistakeable voice, ethereal guitar, and the duo’s award-winning Jazz Americana compositions. “We want to write about a world both intimate and vast, about little people on great plains,” says Glass. “Plus sometimes we throw in a little Bossa Nova.” Their 2016 Ocean of Birds Tour kicked off with NPR Mountain Stage and took them them across the country and several genres, from the jazz clubs of Manhattan to Nashville’s record stores and New England’s folk fests. Based in Santa Fe, NM (and formerly in Montana), the duo first hit the national stage at NYC’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where they won the 2014 Grand-Prize of the international Mountain Stage / NewSong Competition. In addition to NPR Mountain Stage, they’ve been featured by Daytrotter, City Winery NYC’s Cellar Sessions, Huffington Post, Relix Magazine, Lincoln Center, and ASCAP at the Sundance Film Festival.
