Today marks the departure of Sonic Vibes singer Gracie Hancock from Southampton and in turn Sonic Vibes. It seems crazy, especially after meeting as students, working together as teachers as well as founding and performing with Sonic Vibes. As a musician it is wonderful to meet people you click with both personally and musically. I’m sure we’ll end up collaborating again in the future.
As a result I am the final founding member of the band, so who knows what’s in store for us now. To celebrate the end of this era I have uploaded the last of the tracks from the Wonderband support slot last summer. This is a mash-up of John Scofields reimagining of the Ray Charles classic ‘I Don’t Need No Doctor’ with John Butler’s ‘Zebra’.
