i’m all ears / pentatonix

And the giants of this genre called a capella are: Pentatonix! If you don’t get it, there are five of them; Scott, Kirstie, Mitch, Avi and K.O.

They won The Sing-Off, an NBC reality talent show featuring a capella groups, in 2011 and have since exploded onto the scene. They were even Ryan Seacrest’s Featured Artist of the Year in 2012.

What’s especially unique about their a capella groove is the use of techno. I sincerely have never heard percussion and bass done that well, no less without instruments!

Their medley performances made me fall in love with them. And I think this ‘NSYNC medley will make you feel the same way.

Catch a ticket to their 2013 tour here.

Aca-Heather Traska! Next up on the a cappella segment of “All Ears” is this sultry, talented, and natural diva!

Heather knows her strong points and entertains us with her likeness to Adele in this medley of tunes from the acclaimed album, “21.”

Her similarities to the untouchable Adele are overshadowed by her music-less vocality. A Capella is truly amazing and Heather reminds us of that.

She’s known on YouTube and the www not only for her voice, but for her detailed makeup tutorials. Support Heather here.

Welcome, listeners, to a new segment to “All-Ears” and let’s just say, it is Aca-awesome! My next few guests are going to be…you guessed it! A cappella artists.

No drums, no bass, no shredding of the guitar. Just pure vocals. A cappella music is completely incredible and only a brave set of individuals can tackle it.

Let’s start with an undeniably talented individual named Peter Hollens who perfects this so called “singing without music.”

An instrumental heart-wrenching tune like Phillip Phillips’ “Home” really shows how diverse Peter can be.

i’m all ears / mree

Her Bon Iver-like softness makes her hard to resist. Mree is her name. She’s a Jersey girl with a deep sense of passion and understanding and yet she’s only eighteen.

A cover song is hard to come by nowadays, because she is so busy writing her own angelic tunes.  This song, although far beyond her years, still comes off perfectly.  And to think that she was only sixteen when she recorded it.

Her originals are a must-hear, from getting ready in the morning to falling asleep at night. Be a part of it here.

i’m all ears / 09

Shannon Saunders not only has alliteration going for her. Hey unique, indie style puts her in a category of musicians that only Youtube can hide. Thankfully the tube found her all the way in the United Kingdom and brought her to us.

John Legend would be proud to hear this cover of “Ordinary People” because Shannon is anything but ordinary singing it. The technicality in her phrasing where she places her breaths is so crisp and effortless.

Head here to learn more and watch her journey to stardom.

i’m all ears / 08

Some of you may know this true American gem. For those who do not, you’re welcome. Tyler Ward currently hails in the Tennessee area and prides himself as not only a singer/songwriter, but also a talented producer. And I happen to agree.

His youtube videos are fun to watch with each having its own personality and storyline. This T-Swift cover is so charming. I’ll admit it, I’m blushing.
