Quite a blockbuster of a week for a cappella – here are this week’s favorites
Heartthrobs of the late 90’s and early 2000’s, this boy band stripped down all of the bells and whistles and went full a cappella with a little help from Ben Bram and Ed Boyer.
Oh how we’ve missed you, Duwende. They lit up their fans’ day with their latest release – a Hall & Oates classic featuring Abbey Janes on lead and a killer bass line from David Lane.
We never get tired of a cappella originals, especially not great a cappella originals.
A sweet cover of Ben&Ben’s Ride Home out of the Philippines, this arrangement is light and intricate, perfectly evoking the joy of coming home to your loved ones.
The UK stars are one of the first to put a song from A Star is Born out into the aca-ether. Enjoy this great live take on Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow.”
In addition to all of the great variety of a cappella you can hear ’round the clock here at Acaville Radio, we’re going to bring you some bonus releases each Tuesday to make sure you’re finding all of the latest and greatest this talented community has to offer.
Here are our favorites this week:
Here to save us from U.S. Election Day madness, the magical voices of Duwende are back with a cover of the Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love.” Just pour a glass of wine and put it on repeat as the polling results come in.
This game-changing Harmony, Inc. quartet had a pretty great week in Orlando – they finished 13th overall in the International Quartet Contest and also received service award at IC&C on behalf of Harmony, Inc. for their community work with Race and #RealTalk. Here is their rendition of Fats Waller’s and Andy Razaf’s “Black and Blue” – arrangement by David Wright.
In honor of Halloween, Backtrack gave us the “The Sort-Of Ballad of Sweeney Todd” featuring an arrangement and guest appearance on bass by Evan Feist. Pretty amazing set provided by YouTube, too!
Top Irish vocal band, Ardú, released another music video from their latest album, Gravity. This time it’s Elbow’s “Lippy Kids” now on rotation on Acaville!
2018 AcaOpen Champions dropped their first music video this week and it brings back all the warm fuzzies that took over Carnegie Hall the night of their big win. Here is “My Favorite Things.’
Just ahead of their main stage appearance at SoJam, ember gave us a spooktacular video for their cover of “Copycat.”
