Following their release of their video, Alive / Subha Hone Na De / Don’t You Worry Child, Taal is here with their album. This project is filled with mashups between Indo-hits and American-chart-toppers. We had as much fun recording these tracks as I’ve been having playing them back in the studio.

Tiny Room – Mixed Company

The latest release from Mixed Company, an a cappella group from Yale University.

While I have been working with Yale a cappella groups for almost a decade, this is the first album I’ve worked on with Mixed Company. They’ve got a tight jazz-pop sound that reminds me of some of my favorite Bulldogs. Check out one of the group’s musical team member’s, Sofía Campoamor’s, original song, Asking For A Friend.

I edited and mixed this album. It was mastered by Eric Scholz.

Bulleya / Malang – Asli Baat

The latest release from Asli Baat, a South Asian a cappella group from The University of Southern California, in Los Angeles, CA.

Just in time for the return to school, Asli Baat has released their second single of the summer. This one features a little less English but just as much beat – it was stuck in my head for days. Again, it was great to work alongside Bri Holland on these tracks. It was also cool to get a peak behind the scenes with the group in the YouTube interviews they put out to accompany this video – check them out.

I edited the track. It was recorded and mixed by Bri Holland.

Pray You Catch Me / Sweet Dreams – Asli Baat

The latest release from Asli Baat, a South Asian a cappella group from The University of Southern California, in Los Angeles, CA.

With a healthy dose of summer left, Asli Baat is back with a mashup that had me bopping along long before it went up for stream. I was stoked when producer Bri Holland asked me if I could jump on this project and do some editing on it. I had a fun time working on their EP ABCD and was happy to be working on the groups voices again.

I edited the track. It was recorded and mixed by Bri Holland.

Legacy is a group of 13-18 year-olds living in the Los Angeles area. It is directed and produced by Rob Dietz, a cappella arranger, director, and performer.

A Cappella Academy 2016 – A Cappella Academy

The latest release from A Cappella Academy, an a cappella summer program out of Los Angeles, CA.

Another year, another year at camp. 2016 seemed to be an even more musically lucrative than A Cappella Academy 2015. Not only do these tracks have solid arrangements from professionals from all over the country, but they have groove, dynamics, not to mention amazing soloists. I am always impressed and amazed what programs like this can pull together in just a few days.

I edited five of these tracks. Mixing by Ed Boyer.

Original Broadway Cast Recording – In Transit: Broadway’s First a Cappella Musical

The Original Broadway Cast Recording for In Transit: Broadway’s First a Cappella Musical.

From writers Kristen Anderson-Lopez, James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth, In Transit is a show both set and about the hustle and bustle of living in NYC. With arrangements by Deke Sharon, the show straddles the line of sounding like a traditional Broadway show while embracing all of the fun tricks and tropes of contemporary a cappella. At the time of its closing, In Transit played 181 performances at Circle in the Square Theater, which is Broadway’s only theater in the round.

I edited this album. It was recorded by Alejandro Venguer, mixed by Ed Boyer and mastered by Bill Hare.

Alive / Subha Hone Na De / Don’t You Worry Child – Taal

The latest release from Taal a co-ed Indo-American a cappella team from Purdue University.

It’s always cool to see music I work on get the full cinematic treatment. It feels double as cool when the singers I work on the recording with are the stars of the video. Taal’s mashup, singing styles, and videography are all pulling from an Indo-aesthetic that I’m always excited to have more experience working alongside.

I recorded and mixed this track. Editing was done by Bri Holland. Mastering by Vocal Mastering.

Promo – In Transit

The latest release from In Transit, a new musical coming to Broadway.

After a decade of seeing a cappella groups in theaters, bars, classrooms, and campuses, a cappella is finally making its way to Broadway. While this isn’t the first a cappella show written in the style of a Broadway musical, it will be the first to have residency in the historic neighborhood. Working on this promo was very cool – hearing some of my favorite a cappella voices singing music from a show that hasn’t debuted yet – it was very much something I have imagined doing but didn’t think I’d actually have an opportunity for. Previews for the show start November 10, 2016.

I edited the singing on the track. It was mixed by Ed Boyer.

We Are The World – University of Central Florida A Cappella

The latest collaboration organized by KeyHarmony, an all female a cappella group from University of Central Florida, FL.

Last year, months before Orlando was in the headlines for reasons of violence or hate, Orlando Soundwave happened. It was an a cappella event put on by KeyHarmony, after the group won Schick’s National “Aca-Battle”. They put a portion of that prize money into uniting KeyHarmony with other groups on campus, specifically Gemini Blvd, Mixed Mode, and The Crescendudes. These groups united in an exchange of ideas, song, laughter, and dance. I know because I was there, and I got to record people from all of the mentioned groups sing this song. I am continuously so proud and impressed by the sense of community, compassion, and love the a cappella community at UCF is laced with.

I recorded, edited, and mixed the song. Mastering by Dave Sperandio of Vocal Mastering.

A Cappella Academy 2015 – A Cappella Academy

The latest release from A Cappella Academy, an a cappella summer program out of Los Angeles, CA.

The concept of A Cappella Academy sounds like something out of a Disney TV movie. Two of the arrangers and one of the stars of a popular a cappella TV show form a camp for high school students. On top of that, they bring in all of their (good looking and talented) friends to sing, love, and learn. If you think that sounds nice, you need to take a listen to these tracks, because they sound amazing. Since moving to LA, more people use the A Cappella Academy showcase as a point of reference for a cappella than any other concert/event/show/video. Seriously – these kids are amazing.

I edited two of these tracks; Cowboy Take Me Away and Tori Medley. Mixing by Ed Boyer.
