Description

Blue-Eyed Soul Legend GRAYSON HUGH with Polly Messer In Concert @ Bridge Street Live

Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, pianist and blue-eyed soul legend Grayson Hugh is known for his global mega-hits ("Talk It Over", "Bring It All Back", "How 'Bout Us") as well as his songs in blockbuster movies "Thelma & Louise" and "Fried Green Tomatoes". Hugh has been wowing audiences and gathering loyal fans around the world for more than two decades. His 1988 debut album, "Blind To Reason", went gold in the U.S. & overseas, and his follow-up release, "Road To Freedom", was called one of the year's best albums by Billboard Magazine.

His songs have been called "poetry set to music" and his voice has been compared to soul legends Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. His piano playing has been called "a veritable cyclone of soul, drawing its energy from such diverse regions as the swampland funk of Professor Longhair, the testifying soul of Ray Charles, with the rhythms of African drumming and American bluegrass thrown in the mix."

Performing at Bridge Street Live with Grayson is his wife and harmony singer Polly Messer, a former member of the swing band Eight To The Bar and the New York-based rockabilly band Eugene Chrysler.

In 2010 Hugh released his long-awaited comeback album, "An American Record."

Pulitzer Prize-winning Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. was moved to write: "In a world where music is often a brittle artificiality, the music he makes is hard and strong, convicted and convincing. And true. Most of all, true. It's there in the gritty lament of his voice, in the roughhouse eloquence of his piano, and the atmospheric poetry of his words. He has that thing Sam Cooke and Ray Charles had, that thing you still hear sometimes in Bruce Springsteen, that lonely, train whistle in the dark thing, that yearning, keening thing that gets right to the heart of what it means to be alive, what it means to be a human being. This is 'An American Record'. Some of us are glad the wait is over at last." - Leonard Pitts, Jr., March 8, 2010, Miami Herald.
