Home Free

When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC's The Sing-Off in December of 2013, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota… rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.  In the early days, Home Free had started working with Darren Rust as a recording and mix engineer, but after the group won the Sing-Off, Darren took on a deeper roll in the groups music, as producer, and eventually arranger and co-writer.  The have set out to change the world of a-cappella, and deliver furious amounts of music with a hugely ambitious YouTube campaign, where they have since garnered over 100,000,000 views!
