Gretta Harley returns to perform on Drinking From Puddles after 21 years !
Gretta Harley returns to perform on Drinking From Puddles after 21 years !

Well known in Seattle as a musician and vanguard of the local culture, Gretta Harley has worked in music theater, music teaching and most activities that can be prefaced with the word "music" !

Her bands Maxi-Badd and the Danger Gen's (actually the same band before and after a name change) played on the program back in 1993 & 1994.

And her new song-cycle "Element 115 (Uup)" was produced for release by Kramer of Bongwater fame, who has also produced Low, Will Oldham, Half Japanese, White Zombie, Urge Overkill, Daniel Johnston and many more.

It will be great to have a long overdue catch up with this talented, tireless & tuneful neighbor to our North !!


"Gretta defies genres with her music. With her stripped-down acoustic ballads with lush movie- quality song structures and her angelic vocals, Gretta's songs ebb and flow like an ocean using different tempos. Gretta Harley is an intelligent artist for the sake of her art"
