For your audition, please prepare a verse and a chorus (or any 1 to 2 minute cut – we’re not picky) of a song of your choice. Soulstice sings a huge variety of music so feel free to choose a song from any genre. We may also ask you to do a couple of vocal exercises. Don’t stress yourself out about these, we just want to get a sense of your range and musicianship! 

We will email you about the location of the audition–for now it’s TBD! 

If you have any questions, you can email us at soulsticeacappella@gmail.com.

Thanks so much, we can’t wait to hear you!

We were happy to see so many bright, excited faces yesterday at our Streetfest table. Thank you in particular to the young man who encouraged us to sing for him – that was actually the first time Soulstice sang again together this year!

Here’s a picture of some of us tabling.

The lovely lady in the lower left looking at the camera is our president, Shazia. We love her very much.
