BOCA & BOHSA 2019: Great albums, period.


We are thrilled to present two brand new, incredible albums that will once again push the boundaries of a cappella excellence.

BOCA and BOHSA 2019 are a continuation of the full assimilation of digital recording technology into collegiate a cappella artistry. As is the case with any technology, it takes a while for it to be absorbed before it becomes invisible. Early stereo recordings are very clumsy by today’s standards, with the drums in one ear and the guitars in another, but eventually experimentation dissipated and the sound of stereo became second nature. Such is the case with modern digital recording technology and scholastic a cappella, as evidenced year over year on our BOCA and BOHSA albums.

Choosing BOCA this year was easier than ever, as so many songs immediately rose to the level of professional album that the discussion was more often one of deciding between two exemplary recordings of the same song, which is a great problem to have. Don’t miss a rare for BOCA live track, and an original track by Voices in Your Head. On BOHSA, the maturity of singing is stunning, with complex, emotionally nuanced songs the norm this year — such that the age of the singers is near impossible to discern.

These aren’t just great a cappella compilation albums; they are great albums, period — and ones you’re going to return to time and again. BOCA and BOHSA 2019 will drop on iTunes in January. Please note that we are no longer printing physical copies of our albums.
