Mockingbird    is an acappella trio, consisting of Robin Wallbridge, Sherrie Lutsch and Lesley Rigg. They have been delighting audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest for over twelve years.

Brewing their own songs, both humorous and heartfelt, about daily life (motherhood, coffee, rain, relatives and love), they also sing messages about tolerance, unity, and peace.

We 3 Review

Admit it: we’re all suckers for a cappela. Creativity with the unaccompanied voice is the purest expression, and moves and touches things deep within us. Perhaps for that reason a cappella performances are, more than most genres, best enjoyed live; and why it’s the rare a cappella record that holds the listener’s interest all the way through.

So, friends, meet the rare: We3, by the trio Mockingbird   , stays fresh and interesting and delightful from start to finish, and more remarkably, does so without the sound effects and schtick that even some of the big names resort to. The group cheerfully and confidently takes on the canon (“Away Ye Merry Lassies”), the hits (“Teach Your Children”), and seeks out weird wonders from afar (the hilariously thought-provoking “Co-dependent With You,” by east coast whiz John Forster).

The harmonies are beautiful but edgy rather than lush, and the arrangements keep the music moving by changing tempos and spotlighting different members, not through startling interjections and techno-scat. –Tom Petersen, Victory Review, September 2004

Drenched Review

Mockingbird is an a cappella trio featuring three women with great voices: Sherrie Lutsch, Lesley Rigg, and Robin Wallbridge love to sing, and love to help out their community, Bellingham, WA, where they do at least one benefit performance a month. So far they’ve been singing mostly other people’s music (just like their namesake, the Mockingbird, who copies other birds’ songs). Their selection of songs varies widely, a good mix of entertainment and message, from doo-wop to Cherokee melody. Included on this, their first album, is one original, the title piece, “Drenched,” plus “I Will” by Lennon & McCartney, a playful “Don’t Put It In Your Mouth” by Uncle Bonsai, the spiritual Shaker song “Simple Gifts,” “Come Softly To Me” by the Fleetwoods, “Sh’Boom” by the Crewcuts and a marvelous doo-wop song about pancakes. And have you ever heard “The Amoeba Hop?” These women are obviously having fun. You can hear their warmth and friendship. What a delightful album they’ve created. –Jeanette Housner, Victory Review, October 2000
