Album Notes
Modern Angels is Frances Leah King, Maggie Stenson and Vickielee Wohlbach. Their unique solo voices, blending in rich harmonies, are the core of the trio's distinctive indie/alt sound. Fran, Maggie and Vickielee have been creating musical magic together since 1988, and their versatile vocal arrangements are strongly influenced by folk, pop and jazz. A fourth founding member, multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Mark Geisler, performed with the group through 1996. Percussionist Robb Worthington joined Modern Angels for this recording.

This collection of singer/songwriter and adult contemporary songs combines the group's original vocal harmonies with an eclectic gathering of Seattle's best instrumental studio musicians, including Album Producer Dave Pascal (bass), Chris Monroe (drums), Dewey Marler (flute and sax), and featuring Nancy Rumbel's oboe on the track "No Frontiers." The album received critical praise after its release in January of 1996, and the release concert at The Backstage in Seattle remains a Modern Angels highlight for the group and their audience.
