"Beautiful… #chills" — Ann Powers of NPR Music (@annkpowers on Twitter) "Like hand printed photographs that speak and sway… their material is hypnotic…" — LIZZ WRIGHT "Edda Glass's voice must be heard to be believed." — Nels Cline (WILCO) "Her voice is one of a kind." — New York Theatre Guide "Max Hatt's guitar tone has an incomparable spook." — Nashville Scene Featuring Brazilian vocals & jazz guitar, Rio's vibe is invigorating yet relaxing, playful yet sophisticated, classic yet unique. Call it retro or call it timeless— for social events, this is the original cocktail music. For weddings, it's the most romantic music in the world. Available as a duo, trio, or quartet. Rio's vocalist and guitarist are the hometown alter-egos of Max Hatt / Edda Glass, who play coast-to-coast from New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to NPR Mountain Stage and the Sundance Film Festival. They've been featured by NPR Mountain Stage, Daytrotter, City Winery NYC's Cellar Sessions, Huffington Post, Relix Magazine, Lincoln Center, and ASCAP at the Sundance Film Festival. "Unique voices and rare musicians" — Eric Funk, composer and host of MT-PBS's 11th & Grant FOR JAZZ FANS: Rio plays a lovingly curated repertoire of ballads, swing, latin, and modern jazz standards, including instrumental and vocal pieces. FOR BRAZILIAN MUSIC FANS: As a Brazilian friend once said of Rio, we must be "brasileiros de alma e coração"— Brazilian in heart and soul. We deeply love and respect Bossa Nova and the beautiful musical instrument that is Brazilian portuguese. João Gilberto, Tom Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes — these are our heroes. We can easly play entire event of Bossa Nova & Samba if you so choose. FOR AUDIOPHILES: Our state-of-the-art Bose tower speaker system helps us create low-noise high-definition sound. This sonic clarity allows us to set the volume low and yet infuse your event with the lightness and energy of live music. The Bose's elegant profile and small footprint completes Rio's style. "What is it about Bossa Nova that is so relaxing, yet invigorating? Fluid guitar solos and the sibilant hush of the lovely Portuguese language fill out such well-known tunes as "Manhã de Carnaval," "Corcovado," and "No More Blues," wherein Glass leaps into dissonance like it's easy, for crying out loud. Yow! Say "ah-h" to the ideal panacea…" — Mariss McTucker, The Lively Times "Edda's delivery has all the breathy sensuousness of Sade and the clarity and conversational style of Suzanne Vega...You don't have to understand a word of Portuguese to appreciate the unique cadence of the language - lilting, swaying, countering the lively yet understated melodies provided by guitarist Max Hatt." — Jessica Soberg, Your Times

Cocktail PartyReviewed on January 5, 2019From Sarasota, FL

So many compliments at my Holiday Party. Edda’s voice is amazing and Max guitar was not only complimentary but can stand on his own. Rio was an excellent choice for my cocktail event andI highly recommend for anyone wanting to impress their guests.
