The Miami Misfitz is an all female a cappella group from Miami University. The group was founded in 2001 by six friends who were passionate about making music together with only their voices. The group currently has 12 members and over the years has grown a network of over 85 alumni. Our members have diverse areas of study & come from a variety of musical backgrounds, but we join together to create music & life-long friendships.
The Misfitz perform a variety of music from rock to pop to country to R&B and much more. Recently, we’ve tried our hand in electronic music as well as some good ol’ fashioned jazz & swing tunes. The Misfitz find strength in a fierce & powerful sound paired with dynamic arrangements that lend themselves perfectly to the intimate connection the group has with the music & with each other.
The Misfitz placed in the International Competition of Collegiate A Cappella in 2006 & 2007, hosted the competition in 2008 where they finished in 3rd place, & earned Best Soloist, Best Choreography, & Best Vocal Percussion in 2009. We competed again for the first time in eight years in Spring 2017. In February 2018, we were nominated for Best Female Collegiate Album in the CASA Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards for our most recent album, Soul Revival.
