SoVoSó’s Independent Album release of 2005 is a retrospective album capturing the band’s journey since forming in 1994 to where they musically live now. The 13 track album features 7 new recordings of fan requests and updated arrangements of songs including Tu Para Mi and Be of Love. SoVoSó’s 2000 album release spans the musical globe,introducing members Destani Wolf and Norman Pitters. SoVoSo forges thoughtful lyrical territory, from love songs to anthems calling us toward our universal humanity, all rendered in superlative musicianship through the fundamentally human instrument -the voice. Bridges clearly places SoVoSo on the map at the cutting edge of world-soul-beat music. Includes a slamming re-mix of David Worm’s hit, Say. Truth And Other Stories (1998).

Truth & Other Stories.

Each of the individual musical personalities take their turns expressing themselves with the total support of the other singers. Unheard of! Amazing! And just plain wow! "Be Of Love" is David Worm's opening tune. I would pick Joey Blake's "Thank You For The Dream" as his representative composition but notice has to be taken of the fact that he wrote and arranged "Life and Love" which Sunshine Garcia has made her own. Melanie Rath's pure soprano swoops, dives and scats through Mongo Santamaria's "Afro Blue.

Truth & Other Songs1998.

On their second album, members Joey Blake, Melanie Rath, Nicolas Bearde, David Worm, Sunshine Garcia, and Rhiannon (replaced since the recording by Destani Wolf) pass around the composing and arranging duties. The name SoVoSo is short for "from the Soul to the Voice to the Song," and the music always lives up to the name.

Truth and Other Stories - a great surrealistic title that I hoped would be clearer in meaning as I listened to the CD. It wasn't. Sitting down to listen to a SoVoSó album, you can pretty much dispense with worries over tuning, overproduction, weak solos - these are not concerns. The tuning is spot-on, the studio work is sometimes noticeable, but always tasteful, and the soloists are scarily talented. Moreover, is there any style in which these folks can't sing!?!

Their 1998 release, "Truth and Other Stories" has garnered CARA nominations in the jazz album, jazz song ('Gift of Music") and world beat song ("Be of Love") categories. As evident on these recordings, SoVoSó's trademark is their exceptional ability to transform themselves into a vocal orchestra, highlighted by spontaneous musical inventions  . SoVoSó's repertoire consists of original compositions and other songs that present a global perspective: African-American spirituals, blues, R & B, gospel, Afro-Latin idioms, pop, world beat, reggae, and jazz. SoVoSó also collaborates with a wide range of artists.
