I forgot to mention it when the tracklist was first announced, but now that it is finally available for download/streaming on your favorite digital music platform... I’m so honored to have my mix of “Rise Up” by Osa Vocal Rush featured as the OPENING TRACK on the 2018 edition of BOHSA (Best of High School A Cappella)! Their entire album was an absolute joy to work on, so it’s great to see it receive some much-deserved recognition!
Super excited to have my first compilation placement as a mix engineer (All is Full of Love) featured on this year's Voices Only A Cappella! Congrats to Osa Vocal Rush, my alma mater RIT Eight Beat Measure, and all of my other friends who made this year's compilation!

Hey college a cappella groups! Did you all see this contest that was posted recently? In honor of the contest, and to show my support for the It's On Us campaign, I am running a very special promotion.
The first group to a) enter a submission to the contest and b) take me up on this offer will receive a free single of their cover of "Til It Happens To You" professionally recorded, edited, and mixed courtesy of Richard Thomas Music! If you are unfamiliar, It's On Us is a White... House initiative to combat sexual assault on college campuses. This is a phenomenal cause that affects almost all college students nationwide in one way or another, so please consider entering (the prizes for the contest are pretty great too).
Email email@example.com for more information!
(fine print: mastering costs not included in offer. participating groups greater than four hours driving distance from Durham, NC may be responsible for facilitating travel for recording engineer. participating group must provide proof of entry into Sing for Survivors contest to be eligible. all proceeds from the sale of the single must be donated to a relevant charitable organization of the group's choice)
I'm excited to be a part of the A Cappella Education Association team as Co-Director of Outreach! I hope to see everyone in Memphis this April for the National A Cappella Convention 2016, featuring The Swingles!

After releasing a sneak preview EP in the Spring, be on the lookout for a new full-length album from The Bucknell Silhouettes coming soon! I had a blast working on this project, and I think you're really going to enjoy their music!
Just wrapped up a phenomenal Skype masterclass with Brandeis No Singer Clef Behind! Unfortunately my plans to be there in person changed, but it was a pleasure to work with them and hear them grow musically over the course of an hour and a half. I can't wait to work with them again, hopefully in person!
Is your group looking for some feedback on your set, or just want to learn more about how you can achieve your goals in the best way possible? I'd love to work with you, whether live or over Skype! Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's talk!
I'm so excited to be teaching alongside my close friends and incomparable colleagues this weekend as I make my first trip to St. Louis! ACappellaEd is an AWESOME program, and I am honored to be a continued part of it. I'm looking forward to working with some talented students and making new friends!
Just think about what it would be like to work closely with this core team of ... individuals in a few days!
And if that's not enough, imagine a showcase perfor...mance featuring *nine amazing groups*: After Dark, the Amateurs, Missouri State Beartones, Beyond All Reason (Saint Louis University), DePaul Women's a Cappella (DWaC), Mosaic Whispers, Staam, The Stereotypes, and The Xtension Chords!
And if _that's_ not enough ... then: costume party?
Congrats to my friends in Trebellious for the release of their latest single, "Believe"! Trebellious is always a blast to work with, and this project was no exception. Give it a listen, and support great a cappella music!
Are you making a BOCA or BOHSA submission? Please be sure to follow the guidelines on the application page. Label each track with your group and school name as ...the artist name (not the original artist you are covering!) and with the song name as the track name (not "Track 1, Track 2," etc). Then put all the files into a folder labeled with your group and school name (not "My BOCA Submission" or "Album Name"), ZIP it up, and then upload that one file! The point is, we should have ONE click to download a folder that is labeled with your group name, and the tracks inside it are also properly labeled with the song name and your group name! This is super important with thousands and thousands of tracks coming in at once. Thank you!
