The a cappella community has many reasons to look forward to the festivals scattered along the calendar year. They provide an opportunity to see old friends and make new ones, a chance to learn and grow as an artist and group member, and a chance to see some downright life-changing performances. Every festival has in itself the opportunity to form – and transform – a person’s future as it pertains to vocal music.
Another reason for the anticipation, a development which has emerged in more recent years and with increased access to technology, is the chance to work on a collaborative recording. For those on the listening end of these mini-opuses, the tracks give a chance to experience an amazing work of musical art executed by those who are at the top of their aca-game.
At this past year’s SoJam, a group of respected headliners, CASA ambassadors, top-notch a cappella producers worked together on a recording of Elbow’s “The Bones of You“. And now, you can experience the fruits of their labors for digital download, courtesy of ACR!
The tender-yet-gritty nouveau ballad is rife with opportunity for adaptation, and these creative minds came together to bring “The Bones of You” to the next level, making use of the vast pools of vocal, arranging, percussion and recording talents at their disposal. The result is, quite simply, amazing.
These collaborative works are a special treat, borne of weekends that are meant to inspire. We guarantee that anyone who hears this track will feel some of that inspiration. Download “The Bones of You” today!
