-Formed in 2009 by Scotty Bryan and Abby Wren as a no-named project messing around with songs out of a basement on Greenleaf Rd in the East Atlanta Village, Abby Wren & What It Is slowly intrigued musicians around Atlanta through word of mouth, Craigslist, and a little bit of luck. What has grown organically from those late night sessions in the basement has now become a fully functional Jazz/Rock driven Funk machine! With influences ranging from Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, and The Black Keys, what you get is truly fun, soulful, danceable, funky music. They’ll be hanging at The Earl tonight.
