ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Enter the rich, lively, spontaneous world of vocal improvisation with WeBe3 - Rhiannon, David Worm and Joey Blake. These three cornerstones of the world a cappella community began improvising together in 1986 as original members of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra and continue to tour with them internationally. They are also founding members of the innovative a cappella ensemble SoVoSo', as well as the vocal/instrumental Bowl Full of Sound.
With a deep, shared, musical knowledge, WeBe3 creates totally improvised concerts, blending genres, creating soundscapes, and moving seamlessly from the center to the outer edge.

Bass singer Joey Blake has an unmistakable style, fluid as it is unique, full of surprise and delivered with masterful grace. The ease with which he uses his voice like an instrument is nothing less than spectacular and speaks to his seasoned depth as a musician.

David Worm brings his rich, evocative tenor voice to the mix, introducing horn-like improvisations and physically animated soloing, utilizing his endless array of sounds, and holding the time as an extraordinary vocal percussionist.

Rhiannon’s pliable, passionate, rhythmic voice holds the melody while inventing absolutely arresting language and poetry revealing her as a singer of soaring invention and pinpoint musicality. She invites the spirits to enter the performance, which is also a ceremony in our modern times that changes energy and lives.
WeBe3 is magical and skillful. Together Rhiannon, Joey and David hold spirit and musical integrity in steady hands.
