From Pitch Slapped to The House Jacks to Pentatonix, Matt Sallee has established himself as one of the best basses in a cappella. He also may have one of the best laughs! We caught up with him about his collegiate experience, living his dream, and his advice for young artists looking to follow in his footsteps.
Here’s one minute with Matt Sallee:
It’s been a true pleasure to follow this young star’s singing career – first with ICCA Champions and Sing-Off contestants, Pitch Slapped, then with Vocalosity, and now with DCappella. Tenor RJ Woessner has worked hard to get where he is now and he has some great tips on how you can follow in his footsteps.
Here’s one minute with RJ Woessner:
January was filled with such great music – we can hardly believe it’s already February.
Here are this week’s newest hits:
A little a cappella Travis Tritt, anyone?
Not only did Pitch Slapped create an amazing arrangement of Charlie Puth’s “Attention” but they also NAILED it live at Berklee Caf in December. Consider us floored.
In case Pitch Slapped wasn’t enough, here’s more great cover music out of the Boston collegiate scene.
With adorable dogs and a vocal feature by percussionist Jeff Thacher, there’s nothing not to like about the latest cover from Rockapella.
In his latest release Peter Hollens portrays the villain that everyone loves to hate: Scar.
Certainly was a good week for one man covers of Disney classics of the Lion variety.
No one was more excited to hear “Hooked On A Feeling” come back in Guradians of the Galaxy than your author, so an a cappella cover is just icing on the cake.
This sextet out of Michigan dropped their first video – a live take of Thirdstory’s “Still in Love” and we just may be.
Colorado All State Choir
Now an annual tradition, the All State Choir makes beautiful music from the balconies.
Not one, but two awesome mashups of TV theme songs? Yes, please.
