Croz has been collaborating and harmonizing with some beautiful voices lately; namely, Becca Stevens, Michelle Willis, and Michael League, the Lighthouse Band. Listen to all four do Woodstock (live) here.
I started with Croz and Becca on my iPad Pro in Sketch Club (Google images reference photo).
Then I moved on to Becca, Croz, and Michelle in the same way (reference photo by new friend Valerie with permission).
One of these days I’m gonna get Michael League in there!
