Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Gwen Hughes is the city’s busiest genre-busting singer. With her bands, The Retro Jazz Kats and The Continental Dance Orchestra, 4 CDs to her credit, and voted Atlanta’s favorite jazz artist on multiple occasions, Hughes prods and provokes in every performance. Jazz? Pop? Post-modern melodic posturing? Funkified low-carb song styling? Well, you won't find her in the sale bin with Perry Como, that's for sure. The Southern belle "love child of Muddy Waters and Peggy Lee" is, in the end, best described as a fusion artist--a fusion of blues to bluegrass, rock to jazz.
