Spectrum [CD] - BYU Vocal Point

Vocal Point is Brigham Young University's world-renowned, nine-man contemporary a cappella group whose music been described to by some as "an optical illusion for your ears." Founded in 1991, Vocal Point's inventive style, innovative arrangements, and incredible vocal percussion continue to wow audiences everywhere. They have performed before millions of fans on national television (on NBC's The Sing-Off) and in concerts across the country, as well as for millions on their newly established YouTube channel (youtube.com/vocalpointbyu).

Following up their best-selling album of hymns and inspirational songs, Lead Thou Me On, this new CD, Spectrum, showcases the group's signature take on popular songs from yesterday and today—including Sara Bareilles's "Brave" (A snippet of their YouTube cover of "Brave" was featured at the 2014 Grammy Awards.).

PRODUCERS NOTE
The dictionary defines spectrum as "an array of entities, such as light waves or sound particles, produced by the dispersion of radiant energy." Using this imagery as our inspiration, we are proud to share this eclectic collection of musical genres ranging from classical to pop, from Broadway to rock. In addition to showcasing a wide scope of musical styles, we wanted to complement the unique talents of Vocal Point by using a spectrum of colors and energies available with today's digital-recording advancements. You will not only recognize the pure warmth of genuine a cappella, but Spectrum will introduce you to some great new sound colors that add sparkle and dynamic range to that recognizable Vocal Point groove. Special thanks to the administration of the BYU School of Music for their support of what we do, to Ben Fales for his genuine concern for the success of our group, to Ed Boyer for his patience and musical genius, to all the men who have joined the Vocal Point family over our history, and to everyone who has helped make this album a reality. I sincerely hope you find this Vocal Point musical experience a pure Spectrum of enjoyment.
—McKay Crockett, Spectrum producer, Vocal Point director, and Vocal Point alumnus

    Vocal Point is the Best!

    Posted by Joanna Hill on 5th Oct 2014

    This is the second Spectrum cd I have purchased since Vocal Point came and performed in Bozeman earlier this Summer. Somehow I had misplaced my first copy. I had been taking it with me in the vehicle and on car trips and think I might have left it somewhere. Hopefully someone else is enjoying it as much as I do! I listen to it on repeat for a few hours and my kids and I dance to every song we feel like...especially "Happy" :) There's not a song on the cd that won't get you moving or uplift you in some way, or bring back some memory. I cannot recommend this cd and also "Lead Thou Me On" enough!
