When the five of them harmonize, they’re reminiscent of the reception choir stationed directly inside the Pearly Gates. The five of them are Julie Reyburn, Vanessa Parvin, Sierra Rein, Mick Bleyer, and Adam West Hemming, the latter of whom apparently does all the arranging. They also divvy up in various, usually rewarding ways throughout their set. Not too many quintets make a go of this sort of thing; this ensemble deserves attention.
