New Tunesday – January 29, 2019

Quite a blockbuster of a week for a cappella – here are this week’s favorites

Backstreet Boys

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.”
