Album Notes
Over a span of 20 years and 7 recordings Voices has been a mainstay in the Chicago political-folk scene, dedicating their music to seeking social justice through a multicultural message of peace. Their ongoing belief is that music reaches across borders to nurture harmony that rises above discord.

Chris Inserra, Matt Yanny-Tillar & Iesha Scott are joined on this release by long-time member Margaret Feit-Clarke. Together they create a compelling blend of melody and message that is buoyed by stellar instrumental accompaniment from numerous special guests, including Nathan “Meet-the-Next-Generation” Inserra-Mousin on drums & percussion, Chicago jazz/blues notable Mike Schlick on drums, Nashville-savvy Harold Kennedy on mandolin, talented violist Jessica Winter, the multidimensional engineer/musician Victor Sanders on percussion and organ, and a special vocal performance by Voices co-founder Peter Buttitta.

Voices’ live music has connected them with countless grassroots issues of both local and global import, perhaps most notably the movement to close the School of the Americas. At the gates of Fort Benning, GA, they have joined musical forces annually with the likes of Holly Near, The Indigo Girls, Emma’s Revolution, Jon Fromer, Pete Seeger, Tao Rodriquez-Seeger, Francisco Herrera, Colleen Kattau, Charlie King and numerous others in driving what Pete Seeger has called the “singingest movement since the civil rights movement”.

Holly Near was kind enough share her impressions of “Dare the Untried”: “…Voices, just bought your cd from CD Baby. Congratulations on this release! Love the cover art, diversity of subjects, spirit and of course the activism that is rooted in all the songs. Keep circling on! H”

Closer to home, Chicago fans of the group have this to say about Voices:

“Voices current talent-rich configuration brings poetry, musicianship, activism, and humor to bear on the music, guaranteeing soulful interpretations with meaning, wrapped in hope and joy. The Roches in their heyday would be hard-pressed to match this level of connected interplay.”

“A 21st Century political folk group that takes on the great social issues of our time in the grand tradition of The Weavers and Peter, Paul and Mary.”

"Musically, Voices is what you might imagine if Holly Near were to get together with Louden Wainwright, Joan Baez, and Tracy Chapman to form a political-folk powerhouse able to seamlessly blend wit and wisdom."
