Counterpoint with Deke and Dietz

Jan 10, 2019

In the premiere episode of Counterpoint with Deke and Dietz, hosts Deke Sharon and Rob Dietz sit down with award-winning beatboxer and a cappella superstar Kevin “K.O.” Olusola of Pentatonix. They learn about Kevin’s surprising entry into the a cappella world and how a casual YouTube upload put him on The Sing Off’s radar, launching one of the most exciting careers in vocal music history. The trio also discuss how the music industry as a whole has changed so dramatically over the last decade, ways to succeed as a musician both on and off the stage, and the process of developing Pentatonix’s signature sound.

Additional segments: Arranger’s Corner featuring VJ Rosales and his arrangement of “All of Me” (apb John Legend) for his group the Filharmonic and History Minute featuring Deke Sharon explaining his famed takedown of a cult.
