Fans of The Acappella Company groups may readily recognize a few of these songs on Durant’s debut album Ride. With fresh, modern interpretations of some Acappella Company classics, this album is entertaining and uplifting, with engaging arrangements of folk and pop songs as well. The deftness with which this group tackles a wide variety of styles – from the Southern Gospel-infused “River Medley” to the pulsing energy of “Without Love” and “Ride the Chariot” to the slow groove of “People Get Ready” – is a testament to the group’s vocal versatility. An impeccable cover of “Thank You” by Boyz II Men rounds out the offerings here for good measure. Sit back and enjoy the Ride.
