Hilliard Bradley’s premier a cappella group, Shades of Blue released their first single today on all music platforms including Spotify and Apple Music. The single is a cover of “Exile” by Taylor Swift and Bon Iver arranged by Jamey Boezi.
At the beginning of the school year Shades of Blue was faced with the question of how to adapt and change due to COVID restrictions. The group decided to innovate instead of focusing on limitations. The students decided to work on a recording project which was a first for the group. They immediately got to work learning five songs in a very short period of time. In November 2020, all fifteen members recorded their parts individually at the ILC recording studio in Hilliard. After this all of the recordings were sent off to a professional a cappella production company called Aurum Productions to take care of the post-production.
Today, Shades of Blue released their first of two singles to be released in the next two months. The full album is set to release in May. The single can be purchased as well as streamed wherever you get your music. The proceeds from this single and the upcoming album will help to fund future recording projects for the group.
