HIVE is a group of 5 fierce and very different women making music with just their voices and some crazy sound effects - all while trying to make the world a better place.

Formed in July of 2017, HIVE has released three singles and music videos, performed at Yoshi's Oakland, BOSS - Boston Sings A Cappella Festival and the West Semi-Final for The Open in Los Angeles. They will be performing at Carnegie Hall for The Open Finals on September 22nd.

The singers of HIVE come together from across 3 states to sing their unique arrangements of creative covers and original music. With Lisa and Moorea from the SF Bay Area, Christina and NIna from Los Angeles, and Courtney in Salt Lake City, Utah, the women of HIVE meet every 2 months for full-emersion musical weekend retreats to develop their sound, connect as people, practice for hours on end, make music videos, laugh, connect and eat bread like champions.

HIVE is influenced by craftsmanship in songwriting, lyrics that are raw in honesty and true to spirit, and music that moves people. Artists like Krystle Warren, Hiatus Kaiyote, Merrill Garbus, Becca Stevens and Laura Mvula have shaped the sound and soul of Hive’s music.

HIVE is Christina Wilson, Courtney Jensen, Lisa Forkish, Moorea Dickason and Nina Kasuya.
