The 2014-2015 year was Reverb's biggest yet. We showcased our music at the first ever All Roads Festival in Miami, FL, as well as released our first ever Full-Length Album, "Evolve". Reverb then competed at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella in Gainesville, Florida on February 20th, 2016. Scoring 4th, Reverb gave a thrilling performance as the opening group for the showcase. Florida State University conquered the competition by scoring 1st - 4th place and earning some outstanding awards. Our Music Director at the time, Alex Mendez, was honored with the award of Best Soloist for our rendition of "Say Love" by JoJo.
Following our success in releasing our first album, Reverb recorded and released our first ever Christmas Album, In the Quiet White. To share the handwork we put into this album Reverb went on our a Christmas tour. Traveling all over the state and making music as we went was a truly fulfilling opportunity. We also found ourselves back in the studio, recording a single and music video of Same Drugs, by Chance the Rapper.
2017-2018 was a full year of festivals, competitions, touring and studio time. In the Fall Reverb was one of six selected to compete at SoJam in Raleigh North Carolina.

The Fall Semester of 2018 brought Reverb many new experiences. Reverb was selected as one of four a cappella groups to represent this amazing community at the American Choral Directors Association Conference. After performing for the very first time together at ACDA, we found our way to Miami for The Betsy Aca Fest. To finish off the semester Reverb put the last touches on our brand new recording project, Panorama. The Spring Semester brought more than expected, several gigs, a new music video, our first ever Summer Tour to promote the new Album and much more!
