Gig: Record and produce an a cappella cover of Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry”
Over the course of a week in June, Beth Faria only saw the sun about three times. The rest of the time she was working—and sometimes sleeping—in a recording studio.
Faria, a seventh-semester contemporary writing and production student and the director of Berklee’s all-female a cappella group Treble Threat, was one of 10 people nationwide chosen by a cappella record label the Vocal Company (TVC) to record a cover of Ariana Grande’s song “No Tears Left to Cry.”
Each member of the group took turns engineering portions of the recording sessions and giving feedback on the editing and mixing process.
The gig wasn’t paid, but it was worth those sunless days. “I learned so much about the specific ins and outs of a cappella recording and production, and I was able to network and create friendships with those already established at TVC, and with other musicians who share the same goals as I do,” Faria said.
The song is now available on Spotify and iTunes.
