They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases.

The album features contributions from superstars Jason Mraz, Rob Thomas, Phil Collins, Dolly Parton and more! STRAIGHT NO CHASER is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense... and with a sense of humor. On the road, STRAIGHT NO CHASER has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.
