For reasons only an anxious mind can explain SITH has spent the past few weeks uncovering a cappella music in all its glory. It started with Bare Naked Statues‘ version of As Tall as Lion’s “Maybe I’m Just Tired” and ended in Home Free’s kick-ass version of Don Pie’s “American Pie.” Borrowing McLean’s vocals as well as their own vocal contributions Home Free’s version is a tour-de-force and better yet it’s all for charity.

The song is benefiting the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund and is part of the #SaveOurStages campaign. To date, it has raised $1.3 million now a $5 million goal. Home Free was apparently a competitor on Season 4 of the NBC series The Sing Off. The group’s 12th album Warmest Winter was released last November on the band’s own label. Their last major label release was 2017’s Timeless on Columbia Records. Regardless, we’re glad we watched and we’re about to fall down the rabbit hole of Home Free’s discography. Come join us!

Editor’s Note: Raise a glass to my dear old dad who pointed me to this song.
