Matthew J. Palm of the Orlando Sentinel has said of Voctave, “The vocalists elevate the art of singing, successfully marrying precision in tone and phrasing with emotion. They are perfectly in sync…Jamey Ray not only sings with the group but arranges Voctave’s repertoire, heavy on Disney music and showtunes, and he does so with an appealing mix of straightforward style, deep harmonies and the right amount of surprises.”
A cappella sensation Voctave shot to prominence after garnering over 100 million online views of their videos in just two years.
