Get to know the members of Eight Beat Measure this summer through our Weekly #MemberSpotlight!

Starting off our weekly #MemberSpotlight is Derek Gieraltowski!

Hometown: Prospect, PA

Joined: Fall 2015

Voice Part: Tenor 1

Major at RIT: I’m an animation major!

Plans after graduation: I would love to be a character designer or storyboard artist, but the dream is obviously to have my own show on a major network!

Favorite experience with the group: We got to sing at a going away party for these two guys. It was probably one of the smallest gigs we had, but you could really tell it meant a lot to them to have us come sing. They got really emotional and then everyone got really emotional. It was a really special moment.

Favorite music genre: I listen to a really wide variety! Jazz, Electronic, Acoustic, and Showtunes are some of my favorites.

Favorite artists/bands: The Weepies, Troye Sivan, Anamanaguchi, Jacob Collier, Bon Iver, and Young the Giant

A person you'd kill to sing with: If I sang with Ben Platt I’d probably be an emotional wreck, but I’d love every minute of it.

Hobbies: I love playing Super Smash Bros. I’m the best in Eight Beat I don’t care who disagrees.

Things you're looking forward to in Eight Beat's future: Putting out more content for people to see and for any future competitions we might partake in!

We are super thankful for everyone who has helped us accomplish all we did this semester: winning the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards Best Hip-Hop/R&B album with "Polarized", performing at TEDxRochester, recording a single (to be released soon), going to Boston Sings [BOSS], putting on an amazing Chill Beats, and much more.

Special thanks to The Vocal Company for doing amazing sound for Chill Beats, also to Cass Tallman, Lizzie Soufleris, Lily Lautenschlager, Randy Duke, and Andrew Pleasant Jr. for their amazing photo and video skills!

Thank you to all our fans and alumni, we have big plans for this summer and the upcoming semesters! Be on the lookout for more from us!
