“Beautiful… #chills”

— Ann Powers of NPR Music 


“Unique voices and rare musicians"

—Eric Funk, PBS 

Max Hatt / Edda Glass have “forged a unique sound," says NPR's Larry Groce. Drawing from jazz, Bossa Nova, and folk, their alternative musical universe stretches effortlessly from award-winning original compositions to reinventions of classics such as Wichita Lineman, Taste of Honey, Stardust, and Corcovado. But striking material is only half the alchemy— Glass’s voice is “one of a kind...you cannot confuse her with another artist," according to the New York Theatre Guide; “She must be heard to be believed,” says Nels Cline of Wilco." Likewise, Hatt’s guitar and pedal work is a swoon-inducing soundscape that “creates a vastness within its quiet,” (Yes! Weekly) and has an “an incomparable spook” (Nashville Scene). Hailed as “mesmerizing,” “haunting,” ”evocative,” and “cinematic,” not to mention “elegantly funky,” Max Hatt / Edda Glass make “one feel both lost and found, all at once" (New York Theatre Guide).

Max Hatt / Edda Glass have been touring since 2013, appearing on NPR and PBS stations from Seattle to New York City, with tour stops including New York City’s Lincoln Center, D.C.’s Kennedy Center, the Sundance Film Festival, Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival, and the Exit Zero Jazz Festival. In 2022 they received a Jazz Road Grant, funded by the Doris Duke Foundation and the Mellon Foundation, and in 2013 they won the Grand Prize of the NPR/Mountain Stage New Song Contest. Their latest album, Gray May Day (2023), was co-produced by their frequent collaborator, Pat Sansone of Wilco.
