Naturally 7 sits at an unusual confluence of musical traditions. The New Yorkers’ roots are in a cappella gospel and its latter-day lineage, from doo-wop and barbershop to Boyz II Men and Jodeci. But they also picked up on human beatboxing, where a vocalist turns himself into a drum kit, and fuse the two forms.

They call the results “vocal play” – a form of unaccompanied music in which their astonishingly versatile voices provide not just the lyrics, melodies and harmonies, but every musical instrument in every song.

To experience Time for Three (TF3) live is to hear the various eras, styles, and traditions of Western music fold in on themselves and emerge anew. Bonded by an uncommon blend of instruments fused with voices, Charles Yang (violin, vocals), Nicolas “Nick” Kendall (violin, vocals), and Ranaan Meyer (double bass, vocals), have found a unique mode of expression to share with the world.
