Humans of A Cappella: Katy Geraghty

Posted by Max Kuchenreuther on Sep 14, 2017 10:45:00 AM

Meet Katy Geraghty. Hailing from Gloucester, Massachusetts, Katy is no stranger to the a cappella world. While studying theater at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Katy made it big in the a cappella community as one of the core members of the six-member, collegiate-turned-pro group, The Hexachords. In 2016, The Hexachords were featured on the second season of Pop TV's ICCA docu-drama, Sing It On. Her lofty soprano notes and killer high belt can also be heard on their 2017 CARA-winning album, Move. Post-a cappella world, Katy has transitioned to the Big Apple, making her Broadway debut in Groundhog Day, nominated for seven 2017 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Director, as well as winning the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical. We had a chance to sit down with Katy and talk about how her a cappella experiences shaped her as an artist today.

Meet Jacob Collier. Hailing from London, England, Jacob Collier is a singer, songwriter, and master instrumentalist. Known by some as "The Future of Music," Jacob Collier is a world leader in experimental music. Getting his start on YouTube creating 12-part vocal harmonies to iconic songs like "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" and "Fascinating Rhythm" and possessing his trademark vocal harmonizer skillfully crafted by MIT Logarhythm alumnus Ben Bloomberg, Jacob Collier carefully weaves live looping and master-level music theory into sonic masterpieces that blur the lines between jazz, choral music, pop, funk, and more. We got the chance to sit down with Jacob and pick his brain on the next steps for him and his music.
