The Persuasions were born in Brooklyn in 1962, singing a cappella under corner streetlights and in subway corridors. Their voices powerfully echoed through their urban terrain, weaving gospel, soul, early rock and jazz into melodic five-part harmonies. Since being discovered by Frank Zappa, The Persuasions have recorded 26 albums to date featuring their uniquely re-imagined arrangements of music of Frank Zappa, U2, The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan and Barenaked Ladies. Their fans are consistently treated to a vocal buffet of soulful, harmonic and joyful tracks free of any instrumental enhancements, with the exception of their critically acclaimed masterful collaboration with Canadian rock group, Barenaked Ladies in 2016.
