There are a number of talented a cappella singers in Nashville (students I believe at Vanderbilt University) who have a channel on Youtube under the name Melohouse – Shane Stever and his friends Jordan Holland and Suranjan Sen along with other fellow students on occasion. One specialty is beatboxing, which here is imbued with musical wit and a soft Southern accent. Where else would one encounter a cover of “We Found Love” that is interspersed with passages of barbershop quartet, dubstep, and doo-wop . . . ? Somehow it all works.
And Turi Clausell’s performance in their cover of “Someone Like You” should not be missed.
