From 2017-2020, HIVE took the a cappella scene by storm with their unparalleled arrangements and fierce vocal sound.
Lisa and artistic collaborator Moorea Dickason founded the group with a clear mission: to music with just their voices and some cool sound effects – all while trying to make the world a better place.
Joined by vocal powerhouses Christina Wilson, Nina Kasuya and Courtney Jensen, HIVE spent three epic years putting out new music, touring, and teaching.
“With this much talent and A level a cappella pedigree, HIVE was already the next big thing before they even sang a note.”
– Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect, The Sing-Off)
“Dope, tight harmonies that are missing in today’s modern a cappella sound- HIVE SLAYS”
– VJ Rosales (The Filharmonic, The Riff-Off)
“HIVEʻs arrangement of tUnE-yArDs’ ‘Real Thing’ is gorgeous, inventive arranging and delicious, full color, virtuosic singing.”
-Moira Smiley – singer/composer (toured w/tUnE-yArDs, Solas, VOCO and Folklife)
“HIVE is bringing together some of the strongest voices in a cappella for a new project, a new sound, and a lot of laughter.”
