Gretchen Witt

Posted in MusicWorld on September 7, 2006

Gretchen Witt grew up all sweet-n-peachy in the nice countryside of Ohio before moving at age 18 to the barbarous streets of New York City. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in Drama, she was compelled to perform original material and decided to re-route her knack for performance towards songwriting.

She studied classical piano for eight years, has recently taken up the guitar, and has sung under her breath (to the annoyance of nearby others) all of her life. Her first publication is now out: a five-track EP. Her vocal style is frequently compared to that of Alison Krauss, Natalie Merchant and Tracy Chapman, however her style remains unique.
