Daena Jay and Grant Muller & the Mission

The Detroit Bar starts off 2014 with a one-two wrist-slap of soulful acoustic acts for their monthly Monday night residency. First up is the whimsical folk pixie Daena Grey, who layers melancholy poetry over a mournfully plucked six-string. The Emmy-nominated songstress (and former Oxford Belle) released her debut EP When the Bough Breaks in May 2012—the success of which is still driving her career onwards and upwards, as music critics and fans alike believe she can do no wrong. Sharing the headlining honor is local boys Grant Muller & the Mission. Frontman Muller pulls blues and soul influence into his music—his laid-back vocal stylings and guitar work could be imagined onstage anytime in the past 60 years. Check Detroit's website for special guest performances each week.
