Sully's Genre-Skipping Heroes Emerge From the Woodshed, Ready to Release a New Album
Sully’s Pub in Hartford has long been a hotspot for central Connecticut’s musically-inclined. In particular, the mid- and late-‘00s gave rise to a wave of insanely talented musicians. André Balazs may be the hardest one to pin down. Equally comfortable with a croon or a throaty growl, Balazs has made it his trademark to dance through as many genres as possible. The singer/songwriter plays piano as his primary instrument, and that gives him the flexibility to access a variety of styles. He’ll go from a tender ballad to a filthy blues, and then, as though it were the most natural thing in the world, land in the thick of a Russian folk romp.
