Three solo artists join forces to create a signature sound.
Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs will perform at Humphrey’s by the Bay on Wednesday, June 22.
The singers aren't used to performing with others, they usually go solo, but they decided to join voices and take their new found sound on the road to promote their new album case/lang/veirs which dropped on June 17.
"It was truly instinctual," lang told NPR. "I didn't really know, but I did feel like there were enough differences and enough similarities that it would blend together to create something unique and comfortable."
The artists are not ashamed to point out that working with each other was sometimes difficult, but Neko Case says it was only because they were so impassioned by the project.
"There's a lot of times when you would end up fighting for and being butt-hurt over somebody else's line being nixed, not even just your own," said Case. "It's really easy to become attached to somebody else's lyrics or melody in exactly the same way as your own. So that was really surprising."
Lang told NPR, “Collaboration is one of the finest, finest gifts of artistry. But what I think is very interesting about this is that I trust them as people. I trust their souls, I trust their moral compasses. And to me that's what makes this a particularly strong collaboration."
