"To call Dwight Trible's manner of singing "unique" is not simply to misuse the word and mean "unusual." Nobody else does what he does, or at least not with the same precision and intensity. He uses whole dimensions that other singers don't even know about. While climbing and falling in pitch with the best of them, he also manipulated the volume, the direction, and the distance from the microphone with which he sang, oscillating from soft and still to powerful and commanding." - Colin Marshall, Santa Barbara Independent $20.00 * contact the Venue listed below for ticketing information
