Fundamentally Sound (acapella group from Madison, Wisconsin)

~ Group


Moved from the release entry edit:

FS started in the Fall of 2005 as a joint venture between Stuart Covi ‘07 and Vince Machi ‘09. Covi decided it was finally time to begin an official group amongst his close friends, with whom he had informally been singing the past few years. Meanwhile, after seeing that his new campus of 40,000 supported only 3 a cappella groups, Machi believed there had to be more than 20 good male singers at UW and embarked on a journey to find them. As luck would have at, Covi’s colleague, Paul Weyker ‘07 got in touch with Alex Aderman ‘09, who Machi was simulataneously recruiting for his group. Given their groups’ common goals, Covi and Machi decided to team up and became the first president and director, respectively, of Fundamentally Sound.

Just three years after a bunch of ragtag guys were singing scales on the front porch of a dormitory, Fundamentally Sound has become a remarkably well known brand on the UW campus and is proud to present its first studio album…Stratosphere. In addition to all the generous financial support we received (these people are listed somewhere), FS would like to acknowledge our roots. The latest generation has the priviledge to record in the studio but without the hard work of those who paved the way, none of this would be possible. FS would like to thank the original group who sang their hearts out for 20 people (mostly our own girlfriends) at open mic night in December of 2005.
