Artistic License

Based in the greater Sacramento, CA area, Artistic License is a Barbershop quartet with a smooth sound, deep musicality and a lighthearted, professional style that audiences easily respond to.  They sing songs from a wide range of origins and eras.  From Tin Pan Alley to the Irish highlands. From jazz to Disney to contemporary pop or christian rock.    Their choice of songs is guided by looking for songs that are meaningful and distinctive.   They enjoy finely crafted melodies and lyrics and search for arrangements that will make their audience say "I love that song".      

Dedicated to furthering the barbershop style and making it accessible to audiences everywhere, Artistic License is the 2011 FWD champions, an honor won on their very first attempt!    The quartet recently earned honors as one of the Top 10 quartets in the world, a distinction earned at the International Barbershop Harmony Championships , which included groups from as far away as Sweden, Spain, England, Australia and New Zealand. 

Based in the greater Sacramento, CA area, Artistic License pleases audiences throughout the country, and we’d love to sing for you sometime soon!
