Description:

While many current up-and-coming bands are writing folk songs about workingman’s woes or angsty rock about love and society, duo WeMustBe is bringing a fresh new sound to the Valley. To put it simply, the pair describes their sound as “organic pop,” consisting of upbeat lyrics, feel-good beats, and a jazz-like approach to freeform playing, allowing the song to shape itself. Sultry-voiced singer/guitarist Christine Dominguez, who grew up in Newburgh, and skilled percussionist T. Xiques — originally from Putnam Valley — say their songs have been influenced by a wide range of artists, from Ray Charles to Bill Evans to Led Zeppelin. They recently released their self-titled debut album — full of soulful grooves and danceable riffs — and have been seen and heard around some of the Valley’s most well-known festivals (Mountain Jam, Clearwater) and venues such as The Chance, Bearsville Theater, and others.
