Music Monday: Put Down the Instruments – A Capella Is Here to Stay

Written on December 16, 2013 at 12:23 pm , by

It’s been around for a while, but let’s be honest: a capella music didn’t get big in mainstream music until America fell in love with Pitch Perfect (myself included). Since then, I feel like I’m hearing about a new artist left and right, and I’m the first to admit – the beats are hot. I’m still dumbfounded every time I hear the upbeat, run-worthy songs and remind myself that there are no instruments playing. Seriously, it’s crazy. With talented musicians like the ones featured below, and new ones being discovered daily thanks to reality TV shows like The Sing-Off (I’m cheering for The Filharmonic so far!), it’s about time these tunes make their way into your workout mix. So download these tracks and when you start to get tired, just think about all the work that goes into creating these tracks with nothing but god-given talent (and a little vocal work). It might just propel you an extra mile or two.
