WE'RE ABOUT 9: Something Important With Your TimeWe're About 9 is the three-part-harmony, singer-songwriter, adult-alternative-contemporary-folk niche group that exploded onto the folk circuit via the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2002 and 2003. With a profound vocal blend; mercilessly charming stage presence; articulate banter; and passionate, quirky, compelling, convoluted, crafted, literate songs We're About 9 earned the landslide top choice of the Falcon Ridge audience as "Most Wanted New Artist."
Pat Klink (vocals, guitars, djembe), Katie Graybeal (vocals, bass, acoustic guitar), and Brian Gundersdorf (vocals, acoustic guitar) have have been earning instant fans at clubs, coffeehouses and colleges across the North East, and the buzz has spread over much of the United States.
Their live show has been described as "positively enthralling" by Singer Magazine Editor, Robert Lindquist, and "mind boggling" by Acoustic Live in New York Editor, Richard Cuccarro, who also believes that the songs "show stretches of imagination seldom seen anywhere." You can expect surprisingly complex vocal harmony arrangements and a critically acclaimed vocal blend, exciting and tasteful acoustic guitars, and electric bass. We're About 9 has been compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash; Barenaked Ladies; and Cry, Cry, Cry.
The story of We're About 9 starts with the trio meeting at an open mic in Ellicott City, MD. Two years later, despite college and day jobs, We're About 9 elevates themselves to the main stage of The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. In 2003 WA9 finishes college, quits the day jobs and takes the stage at many of the major homes of the folk circuit - including The Clearwater Revival, The Point, Merriweather Post Pavilion, Jammin Java, Institute of Musical Traditions, Minstrel Coffeehouse, and Acoustic Cafe.
