Mouth-Off loves our work!
Voices Only A Cappella 2011 is an annual best-of album, compiling the best songs from only the top colegiate A Cappella groups nation wide. This year, the creators selected "What's A Girl Gotta Do" by the Cornell Chordials as their contribution to the disc(s).
So on "Mouth Off", the podcast about the enchanting world of A Cappella, hosts Dave Brown and Christopher Diaz talked about their favorite tracks from the compilation, and as it turns out, our mix was unanimously the one!
Some quotes include, "Best song on the record, hands down," "The song is in a league above a lot of the others," and something about Steven Goldman 'making a damn show of the thing'.
Below is the clip taken straight from the show about our track. You can check out "Mouth Off" at their official website, and be sure to listen to the clip of this very song in our media section!

Our work has won multiple CARA awards!
Just a few days ago, the CARA award winners were released.

The Chordials' "Shake the Poet" won Best Song, Best Solo Performance, and came in just second for overall Best Album in mixed collegiate a cappella.
Pretty good for an album that only has six songs on it!

Perez Hilton has mentioned some of our work!
In a recent Twitter post, the popular gossip-columnist Perez Hilton praised the cover of "Ramalama" (Opb. Roisin Murphy) that the Chordials (Cornell's critically acclaimed a cappela group) did for their recent EP, "Shake the Poet". That track was mastered right here at Four Legs Records.
