Combining the intimacy of chamber music with the boldness of rock, Fermata weaves together a sound that is fresh and invigorating. The union of traditional string instruments with hard-edged rock ballads and complex song structures forms the foundation of what Fermata calls "acoustic chamber rock." Fermata aims to push the limits of acoustic string music by blurring the lines between traditional genres such as rock, alternative, classical, pop, folk, and bluegrass and finding new techniques to pull percussion and energy from stringed instruments.

The acoustic instruments match the earthy, organic songwriting. The stand-up bass forms the percussive and harmonic foundation of the ensemble with guitar and mandolin filling out the chords, harmony and rhythm. Soprano vocals intertwine with the viola to create haunting melody and counter-melody lines that soar through the aural textures.
