2009 Pacific Northwest Regional Winners:

Rezonate

R&B, Gospel, Pop, Soul, Jazz, Funk, and soon some Bluegrass. They arrange covers and write original songs. The six members met each other through the Oregon Children's Choir, and started singing together sometime around December 2004. Since then, they have appeared at art and air festivals, many local high schools, and even a live mini-concert broadcast from a leading pancake house on the local guitar rock radio station. Would you like a live station I.D. with your order of French toast? Call Rezonate!

Strangers in Harmony

Strangers in Harmony is a brand new group from Portland Oregon. The group was founded in January 2008 when Eric Chung and Mike Mendyke, two transplants from the East Coast vocal scene, decided to explore the local scene and find some folks to sing with. Local Portland vocalists Shawn Dudley and Ramsay "RC" Cowlishaw soon joined in. The quintet was completed when On The Rocks alum Jeremy Davidson joined the group. With a warm, inviting sound and a mix of popular songs spanning the decades, Strangers In Harmony hope we won't be strangers to you very long.

Essence of Larynx

he Larynx is that thing in your throat that makes noise, enabling speech, singing, yodeling, and Wookiee sounds. The voice box. Essence of Larynx makes noises with theirs, a selection of larynxes (larynges?) renown for their function if not for their form. Essence of Larynx also employs tongue, lips, teeth, and sometimes that thingy that hangs down in the back of the throat to create unique musical constructions. Their larynges (larynxes?) don't mind the assistance, since some of the stuff that comes out is a little strange, and it's nice to have more visible parts of the vocal tract take the blame for the nonsense.
