The O&W Acoustic Stage

After spending years arranging vocals and beatboxing for Michigan State University’s award-winning acapella group The State of Fifths, Ann Arborite Kyler Wilkins discovered how an BOSS RC-505 Loop Station could display the harmonies and expressive percussion that lived in his head. Inspired by artists such as Reggie Watts, Ed Sheeran, and Julia Easterlin (aka Hite), his looping allows him “to release all the sounds I wanted to hear in an instant and then have them build on one another like I could with room full of versatile singers.” Using his body as a percussive instrument and his fluid vocals to add vivid lyrical touches to the performance, it’s a buoyant and richly textured experience unlike any act on the season.
