CROSS-POLLINATION CCXXVI - TUES FEB 17TH - 7:30-10 PM
WES HUTCHINSON
LIZZY GRANT

In 2004, after more than four years cutting his teeth in the Nashville songwriting scene, Wes Hutchinson moved to New York City. Since then Wes has found considerable success having won the BMI® Songwriter's Hall of Fame Abe Olman Scholarship Recipient in 2006. (Many great up and coming writers received this award including John Legend in 2003.) As well as having his songs featured in television shows such as MTV's Laguna Beach, Fox's Boston Public, CBS' The Young and The Restless, NBC's Windfall, CBS' Clubhouse, Fox's Roswell, Fox's Party of DVD Compilation, Shreve, Crump, and Lowe commercials and more.

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.
