VOCATION is a new feature within the art of group singing. A great variety of ballads and standards as well as carefully chosen arrangers, all bring about the vocal group´s personality. An exciting homogeneous sound, good timing, their roots in jazz and love for group singing, make Vocation a worthy successor to the influential Swedish vocal group Gals and Pals. Listen and enjoy!

Lira: " Vocation is well in tune and sings frases with feeling - a little deeper jazzfeeling than the more well-known Real Group, without any total comparing. Vocation´s a cappella singing is top class in Almost like being in love and the group is very convincing in Without a song. "
Svenska Dagbladet: " I heard the group at the memorial concert for Monica Zetterlund last fall and was impressed. (---) Vocation with three ladies and three men follows the tradition from Gals and Pals and French Les double six. Still the group is a little rough, not so elegant as the formentioned, but on the other hand heavily swinging, more jazz than soft harmony. The CD contains a mix of jazz standards and modern pop. I fancy a really groovy version of Come rain or come shine in a Mikael Råberg arrangement. "
digmusic.se: " Vocation is very well-come news i this hard mastered genre. Fine intonation and well balanced vocal parts really do the arrangements justice. The a cappella singing gets a golden star in Almost Like Being In Love. Don Redman´s Gee Baby Ain´t I Good To You has a swell groove in the arrangement from Mikael Råberg."
