Around the Horn Voices Only 2010 is open for submissions, a cappella music in commercials is still hot, Nota was a hit at the NBA All-Star Weekend, SingStrong is the place to be, Straight No Chaser’s new album cover, FREE live Rockapella track, ICCA Semifinals lineups are complete (and Dave is emceeing), all-female MD LoLo Barreiro hates all-female groups, Paul & Storm, Naturally 7 has a new album coming out, Vocal Blog babyyyy, Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider were ON OPRAHHHHH! [and here's their new "Fireflies" vid]

The Good Ol’ Days Dave explains how the Persuasions went from their humble beginnings on basketball courts, garages, and street corners in 1960′s Brooklyn to become the Godfathers of A Cappella.

Names You Should Know Christopher profiles a modern-day a cappella pioneer, singer, producer, acaworkhorse James Cannon.

Girl Power Sweet Honey in the Rock has been using song and sign to tell the story of people of color, especially women, for generations.  Dave shares the story of their tremendous influence.

Album Review Despite its flaws, the boys really like Ithaca College all-female group Premium Blend‘s third album Ten.  The solos and arrangements really stand out, but the percussion is a mixed bag.  The potential for their next record is through the roof.
