ramon & Jessica

 

Since 2002, Ramon & Jessica have been beloved by both adults and children for their highly original songs, intricate harmonies, and uniquely blended vocals. After their 2004 self-titled debut as an experimental folk duo, R&J briefly expanded into an improvising ensemble, then  released a second album Handyman’s Honeymoon, in 2006, followed by 2012’s Fly South on PortoFranco Records. In their recent work, they have embarked on a deeper investigation of a cappella music, creating virtuosic interlocking vocal duets. Their 2012 collaboration with choreographer Amy Siewart, at ODC Theater in San Francisco, received a Meet The Composer award and an Isadora Duncan Award nomination.
