Vocalist Amy D and vibraphonist Dillon Vado share a kinship built on trust, synergy, and the honoring of authentic expression in their new collaborative project. With a unique ensemble of voice, vibraphone, bass and drums, the music is both virtuosic and uplifting.
Their original, innovative sounds combine the intentionality of chamber music with the grounded yet agile nature of Brazilian rhythm, the spontaneity of jazz improvisation, and soul-stirring lyrics.
San Jose natives now residing in Oakland, both Amy D and Dillon Vado have been significant contributors to the San Francisco Bay Area scene for over a decade. The joining together of their broad range of musical influences and desire to deepen community connection has resulted in a unique, living work of art.
