Songstress Gwen Hughes
“Gwen Hughes performs songs from her debut release, NATIVE LAND, on the Grammy-winning label, ZOHO MUSIC. An intimate evening of original roots-flavored music and reinvented classics. The critics love NATIVE LAND…
“Kudos to Gwen and her producers on a release that embraces the public and their passion for real music.”
Jay Edwards, Host, JazzTones (WCLK-FM)
“Gwen does it again. She touches the soul while you’re tappin’ your toes…” Jazz Times
‘Native Land’ is that magical moment in a musician’s career when the muses fade into the ether and we realize this voice is like no one else’s.”
