Mack rebuts: ‘Raniere taught me to listen, reconnect to music’

Allison Mack believes  in Keith Raniere. She writes on http://www.allisonmack.com that Raniere is her ‘mentor’ and that she joined his a cappella singing group, “Simply Human.” [A cappella is singing without instrumental accompaniment.] 

Mack writes: Simply Human is an a cappella group I joined over 3 years ago. My good friend and mentor, Keith Raniere, began to organize a group of singer’s and musicians that he wanted to inspire and support musically. He has a theory about a capella that I happen to fully agree with. His theory is that if everyone could learn to listen, and feel music as specifically and deliberately as is required in good a cappella, we would have a very different way of relating in the world.

Since joining Simply Human, I’ve had this experience first hand. It has become my musical gym, and the place I go to learn to be a real musician, as well as a better listener and human being. I sing with four other talented and dedicated musicians who keep me on my toes. They’re each singer-songwriters in their own right, and just so happen to be four of my closest friends. Because of Keith and this group, I have rediscovered music and my love of singing. We have a smattering of original songs, combined with a few sweet covers. So come, check us out.

  • “His theory is that if everyone could learn to listen, and feel music as specifically and deliberately as is required in good a cappella, we would have a very different way of relating in the world.”

    Notice that this statement has nothing to do with music at all. Nothing about vocal exercises, improving or maintaining pitch, tone, vocal range, timbre etc. It’s all about “listening” and “feeling” being a “better human being”.
