Album Notes
World Music/Traditional/Americana-Roots

moira smiley & VOCO is a visionary blend of voices – redefining harmony singing with the power & physicality of folksong, the avant-garde fearlessness of Béla Bartók and delicious, vaudevillian accompaniment of cello, banjo, ukelele, accordion and body percussion. Moira Smiley’s award-winning original music and spell-binding American and East European folksong light up the stage with rompin’ stompin’ body percussion and warm wit. Named #1 a cappella group in the U.S. in 2007, moira smiley & VOCO is the energy of street singing and the elegance of a string quartet. Expect magnificent, hair-raising performances – music that mourns and dances at the same time. Called “fascinating and multi-lingual” by the LA Times, “Persuasive, near perfect musicians” by the Herald Times, “gritty and ethereal, banjo to Bartók” by the Village Voice

"I’ve just heard something … amazing a quartet of young women known as moira smiley & VOCO. This is compelling and totally unique music…I’m increasingly blown away by it each time I put a disc in the player. (They) push the envelope of vocal music every which way – go there and be amazed. ” – Kennebec Journal

"This is a truly phenomenal act, combining the energy of urban street singing with first-rate musicianship, folk roots and traditions from throughout the world. Their body percussion sets are a sight to behold” – Folkworks Magazine
