Singer, songwriter, producer, and all-round entrepreneur Peter Hollens is a champion of a cappella singing dating back to his days at the University of Oregon, where he founded the college a cappella group On the Rocks in 1999 with Leo da Silva. Hailing from Ashland, Oregon, Hollens earned a degree in vocal performance from the University of Oregon, where he became active on the college a cappella circuit, producing, recording, and judging competitions. He started his own YouTube channel in 2011, posting music videos with multi-tracked a cappella vocals, often with collaborators Nick Pitera, Lindsey Stirling, Mike Tompkins, Sam Tsui, Tyler Ward, George Watsky, Alex G, and Hollens' wife, Evynne Hollens. His subscriber list grew rapidly, reaching some 750,000 by the summer of 2014. Hollens worked from his home studio in Eugene, Oregon, producing recordings for On the Rocks, Divisi, Cornell's Chordials, the Duke's Men of Yale, the Whiffenpoofs, Committed, the Backbeats, and the Swingle Singers, among others. He released two debut albums under his own name, Covers, Vol. 1 and Covers, Vol. 2, in 2012, after which he signed a recording deal with Sony Music Masterworks in 2014, which released the self-titled Peter Hollens album in the fall of that same year. ~ Steve Leggett
