Art in the afternoon: Max Hatt/Edda Glass
Max Hatt / Edda Glass features an evocative voice, ethereal guitar, and original folk-jazz compositions. “We want to write about a world both intimate and vast, about little people on great plains,” says Glass. “Plus sometimes we like to throw in a little Bossa Nova.”
In 2014 Max Hatt / Edda Glass played at Lincoln Center, NYC, won grand-prize at the Mountain Stage / NewSong Contest and generally defied categorization. 2015 sees them play coast to coast from Seattle to NYC, including Sundance Film Festival’s ASCAP Music Cafe, a headlining concert at Lincoln Center, and opening sets for Dweezil Zappa, Romero Lubambo, and Autumn Defense. In 2016 they will appear on NPR Mountain Stage, and NewSong Recordings will release their new album this spring, produced by Pat Sansone of Wilco & Autumn Defense, and recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC. They have this to say: We’re interested in stories. How a melody comes home soundly to a place it didn’t grow up. How a major chord troubles your sleep with minor insinuations. How we look to the horizon, no matter how wide the plain between us.
