This debut album by Hummingbirds acappella trio is an evocative mix of ten innovative arrangements and self-penned songs to lift the spirit and soul. Some are political, some are sweet, others just good fun. All are heartfelt.
Emily Roblyn, Ami Lee and Sarah Pennington weave energetic rhythms around lush harmonies to create an original, moving and inspiring sound.
The CD's eclectic track list ranges from a haunting arrangement of Annie Lennox's 'Here Comes the Rain Again' to a quirky rhythmic treatment of the classic 'The Girl from Ipanema', from the subtle vocal beats of 'Fragile' by Sting to the stirring lyrics of the original 'The Baker' (written about the baker who supplied bread for the Jews in hiding in the Frank family annex during World War II).
"This tenderly constructed album reveals not only the emotional connection between the artists themselves, but also a rare affinity with and understanding of the music. Each track is a joy to listen to. If there’s one thing you do for your soul today, make yourself a cup of tea, close your eyes and simply listen to this CD." (N. Douglas)
