TOUR: Faith Amour & U.S. Duo Hatt/Glass - Jazz&BossaNova

Friday, May 06 2016, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Toronto's own award-winning jazz singer Faith Amour hosts a dynamic duo on the first and only Canadian stop on the Ocean of Birds tour. Meet Max Hatt/Edda Glass... "Beautiful music that is subtly poignant, elegantly funky, and haunting without trying to be. Their songs are direct yet often take unexpected and colorful harmonic twists and turns, delighting the ear." – Nels Cline (Wilco, Nels Cline Singers) Max Hatt / Edda Glass features ethereal guitar, an unmistakeable voice, 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” kicks off with NPR Mountain Stage and takes 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, 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. Produced by Pat Sansone of Wilco & Autumn Defense, Ocean of Birds releases May 20th on NewSong Recordings, and is available for pre-order at PledgeMusic [] . “I was mesmerized from the first moment I heard them. They have the ability to create a deep sonic landscape with only voice and guitar, with songs that possess a mysterious and soulful magic.” ~ Pat Sansone (Wilco, Autumn Defense). “ paintings or hand printed photographs that speak and sway. The material is hypnotic and comforting, because it is crafted with patience, wit and seasoned love." ~ Lizz Wright “Mesmerizing... cinematic folk-jazz” ~ ASCAP’s Playback Magazine, in review of their 2015 Sundance Film Festival performance. “Entrancing...profound...storytellers” - NY Theatre Guide
Location: 120 Diner, 120 Church St. Toronto, ON
