“Beautiful… #chills”

— Ann Powers of NPR Music 


“Unique voices and rare musicians"

—Eric Funk, PBS 

Max Hatt / Edda Glass’s award-winning original music has taken them far and wide, by airwave in numerous NPR and PBS specials, and on the road with stops including New York City’s Lincoln Center, D.C.’s Kennedy Center, the Sundance Film Festival, and Wilco's Solid Sound Festival. Along the way they have gained recognition and support from the likes of Jazz Road/Doris Duke/Mellon Foundations (2019,2022) and the NPR Mountain Stage/NewSong Contest (Grand Prize 2013), and they frequently work with producer Pat Sansone (Wilco). New York Theatre Guide calls Glass’s voice “one of a kind...you cannot confuse her with another artist,” while Hatt's guitar work has “an incomparable spook” according to Nashville Scene. Hailed as “unique,” “evocative,” “mesmerizing,” “haunting,” “cinematic,” not to mention “elegantly funky,” the combined effect of Max Hatt / Edda Glass is a swoon-inducing soundscape that “creates a vastness within its quiet,” making “one feel both lost and found, all at once."
