According to FAME Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange, if Harmonious Wail “doesn't set your toe to tapping and put a smile on your face, you should probably get medication." With smoldering vocals laced in with jazzy mandolin and guitar lines reminiscent of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, and an infectious blend of continental jazz, swing, gypsy music, and vocal melodies, Harmonious Wail dares its audiences to describe it in words. Winners of multiple MAMA awards including Best Jazz CD, Best Ensemble Vocalists of the Year, Favorite Jazz Band, Best World Artist, Best World Song, and Best Instrumentalist, Harmonious Wail has caught numerous listeners by total surprise during its more than 20-year history.
