Backtrack Backtrack is an a cappella powerhouse located in the one-and-only, New York City. The ensemble proclaims NYC as its playground and muse. Whether a native or a transplant, each member found a home in NYC with Backtrack. The hustle and bustle of the city matches the ensemble's energy, and just like New York, Andrew, Spencer, Melissa, Mallory and Jordan are a melting pot of cultures and heritages. This diversity is evident in Backtrack's sound, where each member brings forth his/her own special element.
Backtrack has taken the stage at venues across the nation, including universities, concert halls, festivals, high schools and private functions. Notable venues include Apollo Theater, Louisville Palace and One World Observatory. Audiences praise Backtrack on its unique, high-energy and interactive performances and applaud the strong musicality and skill of each of the members and the ensemble as a whole.
In addition to performing, Backtrack is passionate about inspiring and educating the youth of America about a cappella and the Performing Arts. Backtrack demonstrates this passion by adjudicating a cappella competitions, such as the Wyvern International A Cappella Festival, showcasing at a cappella festivals, such as the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) and SingStrong NY, and providing workshops to students across the nation. Since its founding, Backtrack has amassed over 7 million views and 75 thousand subscribers on YouTube.
