If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties,  and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again.
Straight No  Chaser (SNC) are neither strait­laced nor straight­faced, but neither are they vaudeville­style  kitsch ­ ​and they’re coming to Australia this July​ !

    As group member Randy Stine comments, “We take the music very seriously; we just don’t  take ourselves too seriously.” In the process, they are reinventing the idea of a cappella on  the modern pop landscape.    Originally formed two decades ago while students together at Indiana University, the group  has reassembled and re­emerged as a phenomenon ­ with a massive fan base, more than  80 million views on YouTube​ and proven success with holiday releases, 2008’s HOLIDAY  SPIRITS and 2009’s CHRISTMAS CHEERS as well as WITH A TWIST (their first full length  departure from holiday music (2010), UNDER THE INFLUENCE (2013), UNDER THE INFLUENCE: HOLIDAY EDITION (2013), THE NEW OLD FASHIONED (2015) and THE  ART OF A CAPPELLA (a 2 CD deluxe edition of songs picked by Straight No Chaser from  their catalogue for this special edition ­ available 1 July, 2016).    
Under the Influence​ featured guest artists including ​Sara Bareilles,​ Phil Collins, Elton  John, Jason Mraz,​  ​ Dolly Parton, Seal, Rob Thomas and Stevie Wonder.​ Their 2013  Holiday EP, titled ​Under the Influence: Holiday Edition ​  included a track with the legendary  Sir Paul McCartney​ and their 2014 Christmas track entitled ​Text me Merry Christmas  featured singer/actress Kirsten Bell.    

The group originally came together in 1996 at IU, basically as "10 guys who happened to be good friends who also liked to sing." Choosing the members carefully for personality as well  as vocal talent, SNC set itself apart from other a cappella groups with its contemporary  repertoire and dynamic approach, quickly headlining concerts both in Bloomington and on  road dates.    When the founders began graduating in 1999 and went on to jobs mostly outside of music,  they chose replacements and established SNC as an ongoing group on campus with future  generations of ambitious IU undergrads. More than 100 members have passed through the  group's ranks so far. Such was the impact SNC made at IU that the school hosted a 10th  anniversary reunion show for the original lineup in 2006, and when Stine posted clips from a  1998 concert on YouTube, SNC's fan base grew exponentially. In 2007 alone, the group's  version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" was viewed more than seven million times.

Today  that number has surpassed 20 million.    Straight no chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices  coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental  sense… and with a sense of humour. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation  as an unforgettable live act.    Australian audiences are in for a treat of beautiful harmonies, much loved songs with  not a blue blazer in sight!    ­NEW ALBUM OUT JULY 1 (The Art of A Cappella)­
