Performing for over 10 years, Aca-word is a group of energetic singers based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Originally founded in 2012 by a group of close friends in high school applying for a talent show, Aca-word has since become a family of singers committed to making and sharing both their music and their friendship.
The group has taken the stage at major a cappella festivals such as the A Cappella Open, Bend A Cappella Festival, SheSings, and Harmony Sweepstakes Festival where they claimed Best Original Arrangement (“Let It Go” by James Bay) in 2016. In addition, Aca-word has performed at county fairs, holiday festivals, farmer’s markets and other local events throughout the Bay Area. In 2021, the group released their debut single, a cover of Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” followed by their debut EP titled “Play It Cool”. Aca-word’s repertoire consists of a diverse set of original arrangements of pop hits, rock classics, Broadway tunes and holiday music, all arranged by the group’s director, Daniel Jones.
