The WiMN welcomes Gretchen Menn to the LIVE: Front & Center podcast
Gretchen Menn discusses her new project, Reading Between The Lines: The Acoustic Guitar Guide To Musical Literacy, her next solo album, Purgatory In Paradise, and her upcoming performance with the Utah Symphony
About Gretchen Menn: Rapidly gaining praise in the world of instrumental rock and beyond, Gretchen Menn isn’t your average guitar hero on the rise. She once flew regional jets to support her six-string habit. She has studied, in equal parts, the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Steve Morse, Frank Zappa, and Jimmy Page. (Regarding the latter composer, she performs the music of Led Zeppelin all over the U.S. with Zepparella.) Perhaps Michael Molenda, Guitar Player Magazine’s editor-in-chief, described Gretchen’s solo music best when he said that she “seeks the unknown by blending disparate jazz, prog, and world-music influences into a tasty, guitaristic thrill ride.” Learn more at: gretchenmenn.com.
