Voctave – “Somewhere There’s Music” – Jamey Ray Music

 

As much as I hesitate to admit, I’m just not that given to a Capella music. I tend to prefer actual music to hold onto as the song progresses. After about thirty seconds of track one, and upon the realization this work really falls outside of my window of interest, I was tempted to press “stop” and “eject.” But I didn’t. Maybe due diligence, maybe curiosity, maybe what ever kept me listening. And by track two, I began to change my mind. I wanted to hear more. An eleven-member group, Voctave are from the central Florida area. Their individual backgrounds range from Gospel, to Barbershop Quartet, and even to Walt Disney World. They have multiple number one songs and albums on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. Some of the thirteen covers include “Somewhere Over The Rainbow,” “Moon River,” and “Zip-A-Dee-Do-Da.” How’s that for variety? I’m still not especially given to a Capella music but in this case, I’ll make an exception. This is a uniquely listenable collection of well known songs with exceptional textures, pitch and harmonies.

Overall: 8

Sonics: With no music I hesitate to give a rating.
