CROSS-POLLINATION CXLIV - TUES MAY 29TH - 7:30-10 PM
LIZZY GRANT
STEVEN MERTENS

CMJ calls Lizzy Grant a “sweet, mysterious-sounding singer who’s sad without being too gloomy, with delicate songs to match.”

Disregarding genre, Grant mixes elements of pop and avant-garde, complex jazz chords with unexpected electronic flourishes, and narcotic blues with chilling lyrics that sharply contrast with the warm sound of her voice. She captures a musical vibe that will appeal to fans of Cat Power, Amy Winehouse or Antony and the Johnsons, with colorings and shadings of Billie Holliday and Nina Simone mixed in.

Steven Mertens lives in Brooklyn, playing music and making art. He has been touring the world extensively the last few years, going to Europe mainly, playing bass guitar with Adam Green, who he played with in The Moldy Peaches. He has a band that he writes for, and sings for named Wild Bee.
