We Have a Dream!
We can admit, we're guilty. As children of the 90's - growing up watching Britney Spears, boy bands, and embarrassing American Idol tryouts - we all had dreams of becoming the next brightest superstar. Alas, we've outgrown our bubble vests and hairbrush microphones and now we're off making new dreams come alive at University at Buffalo. However, our childhood dreams haven't gone entirely by the wayside.
The Royal Pitches, University at Buffalo's only all-female acappella group, has given us all the opportunity to continue our love for singing and be stars every time we hit the stage for one of our concerts. We commit to spreading a message of female empowerment and success every time we perform. We have been blessed to sing on campuses all over the East Coast, and with musicians like Ben Folds and Sara Bareilles. Each year, we improve more as singers and performers, bringing the most heart, soul, and raw talent to the table as we possibly can.
This upcoming school year, we'd like to give back to you - our friends, family, and fans - and create the most rocking EP that's ever hit this group!
Creating a Professional Quality EP with a Message!
We believe that any strong, positive, intelligent woman deserves success in their lifetime, and it shouldn't be common place for them to receive prejudice, doubt, or harassment on that journey. With our 5 song EP, we're taking back ownership of another, less positive -itch word, telling everyone that we're "Nobody's Pitch." As an all female acappella group, we find it is our duty to stand behind the elimination of the marginalization of women in society.
We've hand selected 5 of our best, girl power anthems sure to empower any listener to seize the day! Unlike CDs we've made in the past, we have pleasure of recording with Acappella Productions: a company that specializes in producing the best in acappella sound. With these guys by our side through every step of the process, we can guarantee we will have a world class product.
Unfortunately, the best in recording, mixing, and mastering comes with a pretty steep price tag. As an entirely self-funded group, every profit we make goes directly back into our music. We have budgeted a great deal from our own account to go into this project, but we simply need some extra support. Every donation you give not only gives you an awesome gift in return, but takes us one step closer to producing music we can truly be proud of.
Music to Bring Us to New Heights!
With a professional sounding EP, we'll be able to interact with the acappella community in ways we never have before. Finally having recordings that accurately display our talents, we'll be more likely to get hired for performances in really exciting places! We'll be able to enter in national acappella competitions that will help us spread a positive message about women and University at Buffalo all across the country! Most importantly, we'll have created awesome music that will give us all very happy ears for many years to come. :]

Thanks a million, you guys! We've already gone so far with the support you've given us since day one. We can't wait to see what the future holds.
Peace, love, and music notes,
<3 The Royal Pitches
