“Your songs are powerful, beautiful, and fun. What a spectrum!”

Our story began in 2013, when Gary was performing in California, and Anjalisa began harmonizing, full voice, from the audience. We sang some more, and very soon we, and everyone within earshot, realized that we would be making lots of music together. In honor of the way we met, we began with the name Voice Recognition.

“Chicken Skin … beautiful harmonies, interesting songs, impressive scat singing. Your two voices are so perfect together … your harmonies were so pure they almost sounded like one intricate voice.” – Matt, Hawaii

We began to tour steadily in Hawaii and on the West Coast, from Southern California up to Seattle, giving house concerts and public shows of our original, uplifting, sophisticated music. We have touched audiences deeply. Check out our testimonials page.

“I cried Bhakti tears, tears of love … your harmonies of yin and yang were incredible.” — Condor, Hawaii

Our first CD, Summer, came out in August 2014, and in December 2014 we released Extended Play, a four-song EP with multilayered harmonies.

“Listening to Summer over and over again got me through a winter in Missouri. Thank you, Anjalisa and Gary, for raising the energy level of the planet.” — Suzy, St. Louis

In 2015, we were chatting with a stranger, when suddenly she lit up and said, “Oh, I know you, you’re the harmony people! My friends were telling me how great your concert was.”

We drove away elated, knowing that fate had just tapped us on the shoulder and gifted us our new name. We are now The Harmony People.
