Fish to Birds
Fish to Birds is the outgrowth of a series of Los Angeles workshops given by jazz singer, teacher and master vocal improviser Rhiannon. One of the founding members of Bobby McFerrin’s Voicestra, Rhiannon inspired her core of professional Los Angeles musicians to continue exploring the freedom and depth that her philosophy and methods gave them. A weekly singing session emerged from the workshops, and from that group Fish to Birds was born.
Performing since 2012 at LA venues the Blue Whale, Catalina Jazz Club, the E Spot at Vitello's, Alva's Showroom, WitZend, Curve Line Space and many more, Fish to Birds blends their individual abilities as singers and musicians to create varied group improvisations, incorporating jazz, body percussion, storytelling, on-the-spot harmonizing and lyric-writing, African music and any other inspirations that occur in the moment. The result is a creative, free-flowing, often humorous and always unexpected musical adventure.
