I'm Freddie Feldman. I have performed with and managed various a cappella groups for the last eight years. In high school, in New City, New York, I started a doo-wop quartet, The Coppertones, and was hooked immediately. I founded a six-member all-male group at Northwestern University called Five O'Clock Shadow (strangely enough, at the same time as the now well-known Boston group was started, who knew?). After completing school, I revived the dying Acafellas from University of Chicago and reformed the group as VOCOMOTION, a five-member, co-ed group. With VOCOMOTION, I toured the country for a year performing at three NACA Showcases, various colleges and fairs and the Chicago Regional Harmony Sweepstakes. After a year of touring, and not being able to afford food, VOCOMOTION folded and I took a job in the engineering world. Since being laid-off from my engineering position at Organic, Inc., I have decided to work in the studio and on freelance web development projects full-time.
I hold both a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Northwestern University. I also run a small, vocal-centric, recording studio called VOCOMOTION, just outside of Chicago. Since 1999, I have recorded & produced fifteen albums for various college groups (three of them featured on BOCA, three nominated for CARAs). I am the inventor of the only product designed specifically for a cappella and vocal percussion, the TH60 Throat Microphone. I have demonstrated my microphone and spoken at the East Coast A Cappella Summit in 1998 and 2000. I can be seen performing around the Midwest as the lead singer for Gaskit.Freddie Feldman
