The Lord's Prayer

Unable to afford musical instruments in 1975, the five oldest Knudsen boys, began singing a cappella barbershop-style as a quintet under the direction of their gifted father. Cutting their chops as a quartet in SPEBSQSA competitions as teenagers, the brothers joined again professionally as a quintet as adults. "Believe" is their 7th CD and besides winning the Harmony Sweeps, they have thrilled audiences all over the world and appeared with some of the biggest names in show business. "Believe" is 11 songs, pure classic gospel ("Amazing Grace," "How Great Thou Art," "Be Still My Soul," "The Lord's Prayer," etc), with one exception, the original "Love Times Ten," which is a stone hit and should be on the radio. Light guitar accompaniment on "Love Times Ten," "Nearer My God to Thee," and "Sweet Hour of Prayer." Frankly, we love the Knudsens, they sing with feeling and power, and their live shows and CDs are top-drawer. Excellent, inspirational and recommended

The Brothers Knudsen are no strangers to a cappella, first as a barbershop quartet performing in SPEBSQSA competitions under the direction of their gifted father, then coming together again professionally as a quintet as adults. They won the Harmony Sweeps and become a popular touring band, amazing audiences worldwide. "Live Wired" is their 8th excellent recording, a live CD of 15 pop and rock classics, sung before very appreciative audiences. The guys have picked up instruments on this one, 2 guitars and a tamborine, but the vocals, including strong vocal percussion, are as strong and spirited as ever! The Doobie's "Listen To The Music," the Beatles' "Twist and Shout," Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman," (a vocal percussion tour-de-force), a shimmering a cappella "I Believe I Can Fly," "With Or Without You," "What I Like About You" got us boogying, Brian Wilson's (a cappella) "In My Room," and a five-song "Elvis Medley" reminds us how good it truly must have been to be King, awful B-movies or no. A lovely a cappella "It's A Blue World owes a debt to Dad Knudson for being a Four Freshman fan , we loved "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," God help us, and a great album closes with "Rockin' Robin" and a "Shout." The Knudsens are flat-out great entertainers who have big fun on stage, they sing with feeling and spirit, and we would surely love to see them in concert again. This CD is a stone winner!

Knudsen Brothers: Yuletide

Harmony Sweepstakes National Champions 1990

It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
The Christmas Song
I'll Be Home For Christmas
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Gesu Bambino
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
In The Bleak Midwinter
White Christmas
Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

The Knudsens ascended through the a cappella ranks as a barbershop group, but are now firmly ensconced as pre-eminent contemporary artists. Their long-awaited "Yuletide" combines the seamless blend of barbershop with percussion-rich production of contemporary a cappella. The familiar "White Christmas" and "Christmas Song" are nicely arranged, with plush chords and smooth modulations. The walking bass of "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" sets up a swing feel, while the CD's closer, a "Christmas Hop" mix of the same song, is hip and shows the Knudsens cutting loose, incorporating techno effects into the tune. The tonal interplay of the pitches resonating off of each other in "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" is inspiring and one of the most beautiful arrangements of this carol that we've heard. Uncle Daniel Knudsen (of the Mormon Tabenacle Choir) takes a solo turn on the classical art song "Gesu Bambino." This CD will appeal to a variety of listeners and is a recommended gift selection.
