This year, IC Voicestream has been hard at work doing everything from touring, to learning a ton of new music, to putting on some KILLER Block Concerts! And for all this hard work, we want to produce even more! This is why we've decided to record a brand-new album to be released in Spring of 2013!
We want to capture the spirit of our group, a fun, energetic group of singers who see a cappella, and VoiceStream specifically, as an outlet for creative expression. We're primarily non-music majors, but we see VoiceStream as a way for us to continue making the music we love and ensuring that singing remains an important part of our lives. If you're not familiar with ICVS yet, go to our website and check out the latest YouTube videos – we're really excited about what do, and have a good time doing it!
Want to know what you're getting with this CD?
Here it is:
- You and I (Lady Gaga)- Emily Holland
- Not Over You (Gavin DeGraw)- Matt Bailey- Adams
- Slide (the Goo Goo Dolls)- Drew Zieff
- Love the Way You Lie Pt.2 (Rihanna/Eminem)- Aimee Rizzo/ Kevin Cavanagh
- My Body (Young the Giant)- K.C. Weston
- Give Me Love (Ed Sheeran)- Ethan Fletcher
- Paris Oh La La (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals)- Robyn Schmitz
- Paper Bag (Fiona Apple)- Kevin Cavanagh
- Death By Chocolate (Sia)- Zoee Silber
- Fix You (ColdPlay), Choral Arrangement by Matt Bailey- Adams
If this doesn't prove this album to be one powerful record, we don't know what will! We have fantastic arrangements, fantastic songs, fantastic soloists-we've got everything except the funds we need to make this all a reality! And we're already hard at work recording it!
We’re getting excited to embark on the next steps of the album production process, including editing, mixing, mastering, and printing the physical copies of the CD. In order to successfully meet our goal of having the album finalized by the end of the Fall semester of 2013 to release it in the Spring, we must generate the funds necessary to finance the final steps of this process. We need funding upfront, during the album production process, to pay for the various services necessary to complete the songs on the CD and make them sound as amazing as they can.
We would love your help in this process of financing the CD. The easiest way that you can help out is by buying the album now – pre-ordering it so that when it’s released, you'll already have your copy on its way to you in the mail. We've got a TON of perks in the sidebar, there: not only do you have the chance to pre-order our CD (which on a basic level is $15), but if you're willing to donate a bit extra, we have lots of incentives for you to do so! Frankly, anything you decide to give will help us, and we're not kidding about the undying love down there. IC Voicestream has always been greatly supported by our family, friends, and alumni- and you've all made us better for it. You all are the reason why we try to do as much as we do, and we promise this album will blow your socks off!
We can't thank you ENOUGH for your continued generosity and consideration!
Love and thanks for ever(long),
