VocaMotion is a contemporary, upbeat a cappella quartet from Santa Cruz, CA comprised of Gail Clark, Michael Levy, Kath Robinson and Jonathan Arthur.

They had the honor of performing with Joan Baez in a benefit concert, in Palo Alto, CA and have worked with the Santa Cruz chapter of the a cappella organization, CASA, performing at their talent showcase in November at the Pacific Cultural Center , and at the 1st Annual Santa Cruz Acappellafest where they opened for The Edlos. They also individually offer workshops: Kath in the sacred aspect of music; Michael facilitating a Voicestra type singing circle; and Jonathan teaching the techniques of producing instrument sounds vocally.

A mixed four-piece from Santa Cruz, California (and past Harmony Sweepstakes participants) Vocamotion have a relaxed contemporary sound that translates well on record. Mary Chapin Carpenter's "Why Walk When You Can Fly" complements the group's voices ideally, and the arrangement is terrific - the group briefly turns it into a round for the finale. "Since I Fell" is a gem; it features a vocal horn solo that nails the instrument's inflection and tonality, which is second only to the dazzling lead vocal by Gail Clark. Several songs are original, and use humor as a tool to convey a point of view; "Amazon Blues" describes one man's appreciation for strong women, "Shy Guy" for the less-than-flashy dude, while "Sock" needs no other description. However, "Dancing In An Alleyway" is a nicely realized pop song, with a fresh melody and creative harmonization. Congratulations to Vocamotion for this skillfully produced debut.
