An independent project launched under the auspices of KALW 91.7 FM San Francisco in January 2010 and now available on several stations throughout California as well as via a free weekly podcast on iTunes (‘kalwvoicebox’), VoiceBox seeks to highlight and contextualize the work of singers, songwriters and voice experts from across a wide range of backgrounds, while stimulating in-depth, high quality discussion about the human voice and encouraging listeners to both broaden their musical horizons and participate in singing activities of their own.
