The all-kids a cappella performance group, Squad Harmonix, has released their first holiday EP to get everyone into the spirit of the season.
“I’m so thrilled to be releasing our first holiday EP! It’s so amazing to see how far we’ve all come, and I’m so proud of each and every member of the squad for the growth they’ve achieved. The holiday season is a little different this year, and I know it will be tough for people to celebrate without the whole family this year, but I hope this ep brings a little joy to you all this holiday season. Stay safe, everyone, and happy holidays!” - Simone, principal member of Squad Harmonix.
Holiday 1 was arranged, mixed, and mastered by Parker Wright, The Beatbox Commander and an instructor of Squad Harmonix. The tracklist for this EP includes: “All I Want For Christmas,” “California Winter,” “Silent Night,”Hanukkah Oh Hanukkah,” and “Run Run Rudolph” which features the Squad Juniors.
A video for “California Winter” released last year shortly after Squad Harmonix was first formed, and now they will be releasing new videos to go with the release of this EP. The first video will be for “All I Want For Christmas” which will drop on the same day as Holiday 1, followed by an animated video created by Devika Joglekar for “Silent Night”, and a performance video for “Run Run Rudolph” in the following days. Each of the tracks and the videos were recorded and filmed each individual member in the safety of their own homes. With bright and festive colors and costumes, smooth yet diverse transitions, and upbeat rhythms, they are bringing back the jolly holiday vibes in the midst of the pandemic.
Squad Harmonix is an LA-based all-kids a cappella performance group as well as a training academy for young, up and coming artists. Squad Harmonix was founded in 2019 and consists of 10 principal members and led by singer-songwriter Laura Saggers, who also acts as the director, manager, and vocal coach. Each principal member started out as a student in the academy and worked their way up to be a part of the Performance Squad. The academy takes great pride in not only educating students in vocal performance but also in nurturing and developing each and every student to be a well-rounded individual. It’s a place where kids who love to sing can grow and flourish together, where kids become part of a team and make long lasting friends. Where students are encouraged to support each other and everyone is made accountable for their own growth.
Squad Harmonix's original song was featured as the opening jingle in John Krasinski’s Some Good News YouTube show, and they have been featured on the Hallmark Channel. Additionally, they have also got acclaimed recognition from Eugene Levy for their cover of the Emmy-winning show Schitt’s Creek’s remix of “The Best” by Tina Turner and Noah Reid. They are also currently nominated for three CASA awards: Outstanding Collaborative video, Best High School Video, and Best R&B Video.
