I'm honored to announce that my band, Lady Jaye, won two 2015 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards in the categories of Best Hip-Hop/R&B Song and Best Non-Scholastic Arrangement for "Drunk in Love!" Thank you so much to the Contemporary A Cappella Society and all of our fans for acknowledging our music!
Arranged, recorded, and edited by Bri Holland, mixed and mastered by Bill Hare.
I had the honor of performing with my good friends and extremely talented/groundbreaking musicians, ARORA (formerly SONOS), at the Women's A Cappella Association's (WACA) SheSings 2015 Festival in Oakland, CA. Many thanks to Ben, Jess, Rachel, Chris, and Kathy, as well as the WACA staff, for the delightful time. Stay tuned for the collaborative track we put together with all of the showcased groups!

Thrilled to announce that Lady Jaye has once again been selected for the Women's A Cappella Association's annual compilation album! Our track, "Put Your Hands On Me," (with a sexy solo by Ariel Arbisser) closes the album!
But that's not all! Men in Drag's "Givin' Em What They Love" (which I arranged/recorded/edited), Vocal Rush's "Green Garden" (recorded/edited), The Rip Chords' "No Light, No Light" (recorded/edited), and the TVC Ladies' "Eden" (sung/edited) were all ALSO featured on the album!
I'm so honored and thankful to be a part of so many kickass recordings by all-female groups. So stoked for the future of WACA and all that they are doing for women's a cappella!

I had such an invigorating and educational summer at The Vocal Company's Next Level seminars!
I got to duet with my sugar, Johnny DelToro, on "Mary Brown" (a mashup of Rick James' "Mary Jane" and D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar"). Arranged by Tom Anderson and Johnny D, recorded and produced by Ed Boyer.
And then I got to duet with my OTHER sugar, Mel Daneke, on "Bang Bang" (the Jessie J/Ariana Grande summer hit). Arranged by Shams Ahmed and Ben Bram, edited by Bri Holland, mixed by David Longo and Angela Ugolini.

Excited to announce that Lady Jaye's first single, "Two-Way Street," is the opening track on the Women's A Cappella Association's new compilation album, WACA Vol. I! We're honored to be sharing the space with some of our best friends and biggest influences. And we're honored by the kind of words of Michelle Rocquet in her CASA review of the album - "welcome to the party" indeed!

The women of The Vocal Company got together to record a sweet Sara Bareilles cover!

Check out this cover of A Great Big World's "Say Something" that I recorded with TVC's own Mark Hines!
Check out this cover of Sara Bareilles' "Islands" (from her new album, The Blessed Unrest). I arranged and sang the lead on the track, it was edited by Ted Trembinski and mixed by Nick Lyons, and we submitted it to the Sara B Fan Cover Contest.
Loved recording this cover from the TV show Smash with my bae, Nick!
I had a sweet time dueting on this JT cover with Johnny DelToro! Production by The Vocal Company.

I'm so proud of both of my groups and honored to be represented in the 2013 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards! Thank you to the Contemporary A Cappella Society and all of our supporters!
Men in Drag won Best Scholastic Original Song for "Something in the Water," and was nominated for Best Female Collegiate Album for Late Nights, Parades, Best Female Collegiate Song for "On the Wing," and Best Female Collegiate Arrangement for "Hurt."
(I co-wrote "Something in the Water" with Markie Gray, arranged most of the album [all but "Never Forget You"], and recorded/edited/produced much of the album.)

(I performed on "We Found Love" and co-wrote "Life of the Mind" with Chris Rishel.)
What a time. Those nude, full-body unitards have come in more handy since the filming of this video than you may have guessed.
