The Witherbees

The Witherbees, a sweetheart folk-jazz group, explores, composes, performs, and deconstructs songs. Composed of vocalist/violist/songwriter Jacqui Armbruster and guitarist Mike Lorenz, the Witherbees are the outcome of their collective and collaborative process as performers, composers, arrangers, and producers. Trying to discern or identify influences and inspirations leads to many open doors and windows that the collaborative duo freely and willingly explore, brought into its fullest expression and form when the music is performed with their quartet. Out of their homebase in Bethlehem, PA, they invite the listener on a roundtrip of cozy mystery and blurred edges. Although they met first as teacher and student, Lorenz and Armbruster share a musical connection and friendship that is dynamic, special, and rare
