Vocal Tonic is a 6-man vocal band based in Atlanta, Georgia, which is fast becoming The a capella hub of the nation... well, at least in the South. Repertoire is mainly pop/rock, with a touch of jazz and r & b thrown in for good measure. Currently celebrating the release of their new recording, "chaser," VT brings new life to 70s, 80s, and 90s covers and also introduces progressive, new a capella originals. Their first CD, "tall cool refreshing," garnered a CARA nomination for Best Original Song in 1999. VT was again nominated in 2000 for a CARA when its second CD, "chaser", received the nomination for Best Pop/Rock Cover Song. Vocal Tonic can be seen performing around the South and has recently performed for the Atlanta Braves and on Channel 11's Peachtree Morning, an Altanta morning show.

Livin' La Vida Loca
With the production assistance of Rockapellaıs vocal percussionist
Jeff Thacher, who also contributes vocal percussion to four tracks, Vocal Tonicıs
second CD is a dramatic step forward for the group. Current pop hits (the ubiquitous
"Livinı La Vida Loca") and classic rock (Edgar Winterıs "Free Ride"), along
with six originals, are the vital ingredients; the formula, the solid arrangements.
Vocal Tonicıs easy rock style, as exemplified by "LightHouse" and "Whisper,"
is consonant and melodic, without becoming fatally trite. Clever touches such
as their insertion of a verse of "Sunshine Of Your Love" into their own "Let
It End," and the "instrumental" breakdown in "Free Ride" which is super-tight
and heavy give this "Chaser" a flavor all its own.
