Backtrack Vocals: A Cappella Internet Sensation

Posted on at

Spencer Polanco aka Spencer Beatbox has been performing in the tri state area of New York for the past 5 years. In that time he was introduced to the vocal art of A Cappella in his senior year of high school, joining the Midnight Ramblers of Rochester university to audition for Sing Off, a reality show for A Cappella bands on NBC.

Eventually Spencer found himself busking on the great streets of New York City at Union Square. There he gathered a large group of people who watched his performance, one of them being John Andrew Kim, owner of Yellow Ribbon Productions.

Eventually he contacted Spencer and asked him to join his A Cappella group, backtrack. All of the members are graduates of North Western University. 

After 4 singles the group reached an incredible 300,000+ views and 3,500+ subscribers. Their cover of P!ink's "Just Give Me a Reason" reached 200,000 views on its own in the matter of 2 months.

Currently, they just signed a contract with Fullscreen, a global network for curators and brands and are looking for new opportunities and performances.
