Cut Off Studios

Cut Off Studios was founded in 2014 by Nick Hunter and Matthew Zager. The two met at Roberts Wesleyan College, as members of the all-male a cappella group, Vocal Infusion. After college, Matt and Nick, along with other Roberts a cappella alumni, founded the post collegiate group, Cut Off. After recording an EP with Liquid 5th Productions, Nick became interested in the production side of a cappella music and started working on his own recording projects.
The two began collaborating on projects together and thus began Cut Off Studios!

Rachael sits down with Matt, Kiara, and Alyssa to talk about what the studio has been up to during the pandemic, including recording all sorts of projects, virtual choirs, and their newest endeavor, MC2.0.

Then the pandemic hit and things came to a bit of a halt, but the group didn’t stop! They recorded and released their rendition of Moanin’, which was in their 2020 set.

Keyframe Voices – Evolution of Disney

Keyframe Voices is the brainchild of Christopher Igoe & Graham Allen, two friends who wanted to view the magic of movies through the lens of a cappella. This prompted the duo to review the massive Disney catalogue and put together medleys of the various ages of the studio. In this episode, Rachael talks with Chris and Graham about their first two medleys – The Golden Age and The Silver Age – which feature gems from movies like Snow White, Fantasia, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp and so many more! They called on friends and singers from all over, the result of which is an amazing collaboration of talent that begs to be heard and seen!
