Album Description

Time & Space (BMI / 2010) kicks off with a rollicking call-and-response party track with caribbean and old-school hip hop flavor, strong horn riffs and a tongue-in-cheek story about a serious topic: racism. Gretchen Elise’s strong, jazz-based pop songwriting branches to soul, blues, and deep soulful house realms. Gretchen’ s strong, Brazilian jazz-flavored vocal melodies, craftful vocal harmonies, and unexpected collaborations (hip hop poet Walnut; reggae singer Lady Lee; Camden second line Royal Brass Band) tell compelling stories guided by undivided attention to a good groove.
