2019 ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
Inverse is a group of six young singers who found family and passion in a cappella. While striving to share that love with new people, Inverse makes music across many musical genres in order to reach every member of their audiences. Hailing from the great state of Michigan, Inverse has goals of bringing their vocal music to every corner of the world.
A perfect example of friendship at the core of artistic creation, Inverse relies on their strength of making you feel right at home as they show off their multiple percussionists, stylistic soloing, and intimate storytelling. Founded in 2019, Inverse is still in their infant stages and hopes to bring their online success to the stage more and more as a cappella becomes more accessible across the globe.
Collide was formed in 2017 by five, college-aged, Colorado natives that came together in Fort Collins. These bright voices bring a fresh sound to the A Cappella scene, featuring tight harmonies, unique pop covers, and a dynamic, youthful energy.
Collide enjoys experimenting with unusual songs and sounds, and putting their own spin on the music they choose. They also often take on styles that aren't traditionally done a cappella, such as rap and electronic music.
Collide's singers have a wide array of musical skills; from Collin (vocal percussionist) who is pursuing a Jazz degree at UNC Greeley, to Josh (Tenor), who is classically trained and has a BA in Music Education. The members of Collide embrace their different musical backgrounds and strive to show their musical diversity in their performances.
