“It’s not enough to sing these songs and remember the correct lyrics. You have to listen to how the original artists phrased each lyric line, where they take their breaths and the texture and timbre of their voices. You have to embrace the songwriter’s lyrics to understand the sentiment of the songs. We are not trying to show how great we sing by improvising on the original songs. We are endeavoring to rekindle the memories they invoked with fans of these original artists who grew up with the music.” --Mark Sonder
