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, 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.'
