About Us

VoiceMale is Brandeis University's award-winning all-male a cappella group. Founded in 1994 by Samrat Chakrabarti, the group travels coast-to-coast performing a mix of rock, pop, R&B, oldies and more at a wide variety of venues including colleges, high schools, charity events, and private functions.

As a traditionally small collegiate group, VoiceMale emphasizes the role of every individual in creating a full, balanced sound. Members of VoiceMale share the philosophy that all components of a song are equally important, and their arrangements strive to reflect that with voice parts that are distinct and interesting, yet always complementary to one another. This allows the group to showcase the uniqueness of its members' voices and, at the same time, their ability to work together as a unit. While staying true to these fundamentals, VoiceMale constantly aims to grow and improve by building upon the foundation laid by members past.

Through its dedication to combining intricate arrangements with passionate performance both on the stage and in the studio, VoiceMale has worked to earn its place in the national a cappella scene. Holding titles such as WERS 88.9 FM's All A Cappella Live Champion and Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA) Winner, VoiceMale has received notable recognition for its sound, live and recorded. In December 2011, the group released its first ever concept album, Phoenix, which offers a mix of contemporary covers and original music and takes the listener through an emotional journey. With tracks placed on national and international compilations alike, and recently nominated for four CARAs, Phoenix now joins the ranks of VoiceMale's previous award-winning albums Suit Up. (2009), Ain't Done Overnight (2006), and Propeller (2003).


VoiceMale would like to thank its devoted fans, affectionately called FOVs (Fans Of VoiceMale).
Your continuous support and enthusiasm drive our group to reach new heights, and we are truly grateful for all of the incredible experiences you make possible.
