LiveWyre is an original blend of cinematic, groove, neo-soul, jazz, ambient and fusion sounds. Much of the music draws influence of musicians who blend genres in their own writing style; the compositional sounds of jazz masters like Esperanza Spalding, Hiromi Uehara, Robert Glasper (etc) are alluded to throughout the music of the LiveWyre project.
