Loyolacappella will feature its unique vocal arrangements of pop music in its new full length album, "BOOM!"

The Vision

As members of Loyolacappella, we aspire to produce an album that reflects the variety of music styles and talents of our current group. We've already recorded the tracks, but need YOU to help fund the editing, mixing, and mastering of our album. We are committed to making the best album for our fans. For the past four months, we’ve been raising funds in order to begin this project. We've already sold over 250 presale CDs and we're still selling. We've also sold singing valentines, held CD benefit concerts and fundraising parties on campus.

Our album, "BOOM!" is set to release in late August. We look forward to sharing our hard work and dedication with you in our finished product!

Why Produce an Album?

We love music. Not so much in the cliché, "music is my life, man" kind of way, but in the "we can't wait to share our music with everyone" kind of way. 

But what makes our album different from other A Cappella albums, you ask? Well, all of our members are exceptional beatboxers, arrangers, vocalists and all of our members create vocal arrangements based on our own styles and music preferences. With music arranged from artists such as Sufjan Stephens, Lady Gaga, and LFO, we showcase over 7 genres ranging from Folk to Hip hop! Because of this, our group's musical style reflects every member of the group and doesn't adhere to a specific genre. We hope that by reflecting the musical styles of each member, we can create an album that will please all of our listeners. 

The Plan

We plan to produce our album with Carl Taylor and Liquid5th, located in Raleigh, NC. Carl will mix, edit, and master during the summer and the CD release will be in the fall of 2012. Our album will be for sale as a physical CD and for sale online as a digital download. If you'd like to look into Liquid5th's website, check out http://www.liquid5th.com.  

We are on our way to producing "BOOM!", but still need your help! 

What We Have:

  • We have the music:We have a talented and dedicated group. We've spent countless hours studying our music in preparation for the next two months. With over 11 unique vocal arrangements on our new album, we've poured our hearts and souls into our new CD.
  • We have the crew:Carl Taylor has worked alongside A Cappella organizations such as ICCA and CASA. In addition, Carl helped to launch the first SoJam music festival working with the ACCI. Carl and Liquid5th have worked alongside award winning collegiate A Cappella groups like: UNCG Spartones, Cornell Chordials, Duke University Rhythm and Blue, and many more! Carl Taylor and Liquid5th will help turn our music into a fine-tuned, professional album.
  • We have the community: That's right, You!Which leads us to...

What We Need:

Our goal is to raise the funds to:

  • Finance the recording, editing, mixing and mastering of "BOOM!" done by Carl Taylor and Liquid5th.
  • Finance the production of our album in physical form - that includes physical CDs, album artwork, and promotion of the CD.

Would you consider investing in our album?We have the resources, the drive, and a rock-solid plan of action. In order of donation size from least to greatest, we will offer free tracks, CDs, signed CDs, special thanks in our performance programs, and special personal thank yous and emails. For those who donate more, we will go so far to host parties, song arrangement dedications, performance dedications, or even special performances!

Thank you so much for checking us out and we thank you in advance for any future donations!

The History

Loyolacappella is Loyola University Chicago's premier co-ed A Cappella group. Since 1998 we have performed at events in the Chicago and the surrounding area. We are the oldest A Cappella group on campus, along with our younger brother group, the Aca' Fellas, and our younger sister, the Silhouettes. We in Loyolacappella strive to arrange creative and entertaining music for all audiences. Until this year, Loyolacappella has not made an impact on a national level, but we hope that will change with the production and distribution of this CD!
