"Their willingness to innovate, their daring of opening up artistic new lands, is rewarded with full concert halls and coveted trophies." These people are the talents behind this Vocal Bastard A Cappella band.
These singing artists create a particular sound that even drops the jaws of a cappella masters: Before his death, a captivated Ward Swingle, founder of the legendary Swingle Singers, praised the band saying, “Your style is unique,” while King’s Singer, Gabriel Crouch, named SLIXS “better than any group (he’s) ever heard!” And before Bobby McFerrin took them to a common European tour, he once said „I've never heard these tunes so funky“. Not only that but also its extensive international acclaim makes this sextet currently one of the best vocal bands in the world. Their artistic daringness and thirst for innovation were already honored with some of the world's highest awards for vocal art, including Best Jazz Song of the Year 2008 and Best Folk/World Song of the Year 2013 at the CARA's (Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards). In 2006, they already have been a two-time audience winner at the International A Cappella Competition in Graz (A) and since then, on tour in an unchanged band constellation.
