Dave Sperandio

Dave at the console!

Dave Sperandio, or “dio” as he is sometimes called, has been working with a cappella music for 18 years as a performer, producer, and promoter. His work has helped to define and support the contemporary a cappella world for more than a decade.

Dave is the founder of the Alliance for A Cappella Initiatives, and creator of the acclaimed SoJam A Cappella Festival, as well as the ‘Sing’ vocal compilation CD.

Since founding the a cappella production company diovoce in 2000, his clients have appeared on numerous “best-of” compilations, including over 50 appearances on the BOCA, CAMO, Voices Only, and ‘Sing’ series. Dave’s work has received numerous CARA nods, both as a performer and while “behind the glass”. He has been called the “Timbaland of a cappella” in the Gotham-published aca-documentary “Pitch Perfect”, and has appeared in a featured interview with the a cappella podcast Mouth Off!.

Dave has performed with numerous ensembles, directed the UNC Clef Hangers, and has toured and recorded with vocal tonic, transit, and Almost Recess. His work has afforded him the opportunity to work with many talented recording artists, including Ben Folds, Brendan James, and Anoop Desai.

In 2006 Dave partnered with fellow producers Ed Boyer, James Cannon, James Gammon, and Tat Tong to form VocalSource, which represents the most comprehensive network of vocal music producers and studios in the world.

In 2008 Dave merged the AACI with CASA, joining the CASA Board of Directors as Director of Events, now managing SoJam, the LA/AF, VoCALnation, SMACC, and a growing network of CASA festivals and events around the world.
