Straight No Chaser

Straight No Chaser are neither straitlaced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. As original 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 modern pop a cappella.

Originally formed a dozen years ago while the members were students at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and reemerged as a phenomenon with a huge fan base, millions of viewers on YouTube, and a contract with Atlantic Records. In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing and ProTooling, Straight No Chaser is the real deal—the captivating sound of 10 unadulterated voices coming together to make extraordinary music.

$25
