Dave Grusin is a seminal figure in the world of music. Winner of multiple Grammy and Academy Awards, the scope of his work as a jazz pianist, film composer and GRP Records founder is unparalleled. His career has been distinguished by his mastery of many styles, counterbalanced by a touch at the piano which makes his keyboard signature totally unique. Integrity, exquisite taste, and impeccable musicianship have consistently been the cited keynotes of his work, which has been honored by numerous industry awards as well as doctorates from the University of Colorado and Berklee College of Music. The eminent producer/director Sydney Pollack, with whom he collaborated on nine films, has summed it up succinctly with the words, "he can do anything, and he has done everything."

Memphis-raised singer-songwriter Kelly Hunt paints stories as old and offbeat as her Depression-era tenor banjo, reimagining traditions of folk, blues & old-time music in a style that hovers beyond the constraints of genre à la Anaïs Mitchell & Gillian Welch. Hunt’s debut album, Even The Sparrow, was released in May 2019 and named as a finalist for the International Folk Music Awards "Album of the Year." Her upcoming sophomore album, Ozark Symphony, was recorded with Grammy-winning musician & producer Dirk Powell and is slated for release in late 2022.

"From the first instant you know you’re in a place where there is no sense of time, where anything can happen and no one will ever have to admit to a thing." — GREIL MARCUS [ROLLING STONE]
"With her minimalist, almost woody-sounding banjo, and her clear, almost operatic voice, Kelly Hunt has a striking and original sound." — JOHN SCHAEFER | WNYC SOUNDCHECK / WEEKLY ROUNDUP
"Standing shoulder to shoulder with contemporaries like Gillian Welch and Rhiannon Giddens...folk music harking back to the stripped-down sounds of Leadbelly, Robert Johnson and Woody Guthrie." — JOHN VAITES [AMERICANA UK]
"Uncanny is Hunt’s innate ability to summon the same vigorous energy of classic folk players, all while pushing forward to modernize the instrument’s role in contemporary songwriting...She delivers her lyrics with an earthen frankness that can’t be taught. "— JONATHAN FRAHM [POPMATTERS]
“Kelly Hunt sings with the lilting cadence of a folksinger born somewhere far away, sometime long ago.” ROLLING STONE COUNTRY
