|Back to Pentatonix||
"Hi hello! We are Pentatonix, and we're an acapella group. We
are comprised of five members: Scott, Mitch, Kirstie, Avi, and the
human beat machine, Kevin."
When did you become a group,
and what made you want to do the whole a capella thing?"We started
out as an a capella trio (Scott, Mitch, Kirstie), but when we decided
to audition for "The Sing-Off"," we added Avi and Kevin
to fill out the sound. We were all fascinated with the concept of
"a capella" when we first began, especially because we were
excited to create new & interesting sounds! We all draw from so
many musical influences, so you can imagine that we were all itching
What was it like winning
season 3 of NBC's The Sing-Off? Do you remember how you felt that
"VERY nervous, haha!
It was definitely surreal. To know that we had put in countless hours
of hard work, worked through illnesses, and overcome many obstacles
was a feat in itself. But to be rewarded for it like this was unbelievable!
We were very humbled and grateful."
How would you describe
your sound to a new listener?
"A combination of
hard electronic music, R&B, and pop. With a few interesting treats
How long does it take you
to come up with your arrangements? How about recording the actual
"The average time-frame
is about 2-3 days. Unless it's super hard, then we have to meditate
on it for a bit longer. Shooting the cover videos takes about an hour
and a half."
I loved your collaboration
with Natalie Weiss! Would you guys be interested in doing more collab
work in the future?
"Thank you very much!
She's incredibly talented and we were so excited to work with her.
Yes, we are definitely interested in doing more collabs. It's always
an interesting process. We're keeping our eyes peeled & our options
What projects are you guys
currently working on? What can we expect from you guys in the upcoming
"Currently, we are
working on our Christmas album. "PTX Vol. 2" is also in
the works. The fans can expect a lot more original material, as well
as covers of new & unique songs."
What's an interesting fact
about each of you that many people may not know?
"I like to DJ."
Scott: "fried chicken
is and will always be my favorite food."
Avi: "I was an equestrian
champion, I have the blue ribbons to prove it."
Kevin: "I am in love
with China. Spent 1.5 years there!"
Kirstie: "When I was
little I used to pretend I was a mermaid every time I got in the water..."
"Thanks for promoting
us, Dylan! Yeah for sure. He can also follow us @PTXOfficial. :)"
That was the last question.
Thanks again for taking the time to do this interview! Do you have
any last thoughts or comments?
