The latest release from The Riveters, an all female a cappella group out of Oakland, CA.
I have a serious problem with The Riveters. I was at their debut performance at #SheSing2013. Even at soundcheck, I knew that they weren’t just a power house group, but one which resonated with all of the same artistic and aesthetic principles I treasure. When group founder Lisa Forkish asked me to be involved in the project, I leapt at the opportunity. This post is for their video for Jolene, but the rest of the EP is on it’s way soon! This one features Sarah Vela, whom you might have recently (as recently as tonight) seen on NBC’s The Sing Off, singing lead with Vocal Rush, a high school a cappella group Lisa directs. Or maybe you recognized their percussionist, Courtney Jensen, from the group Noteworthy, which appeared on season 1. A cappella; it’s one big happy family!
Edit: This track just got on Voices Only Forte IV! Huzzah!
