What are your favorite recorded a cappella tracks? Tribute (Duke Pitchforks), Something Within Me (Take 6), Light in Your Eyes (MIT Logarhythms), Vehicle (Tufts Beezlebubs),

What was the first a cappella song you ever heard? Only a Few More Miles to Go by Take 6

What is your favorite Fundamentally Sound memory? Buying Cameron, Bret, Peter and Tyler breakfast at IHOP after the ICCA 2009 afterparty.

What was the first song you ever performed with Fundamentally Sound? “High and Dry” at the Red Dress Gala at the Concourse Hotel. I had to do vocal percussion. It didn’t go well.

What previous singing experience do you have? High school Madrigal Singers, Choir, co-ed a cappella group “13 Fish Named Jennifer,” all-male a cappella group “The Testostertones.”

Interesting Fact: I spent 8 of the first 10 years of my life living on an island in the Pacific called Kwajalein. The island is 3 miles long and a half mile wide. Average temperature was 85 degrees, we all rode bikes everywhere, and we went to the beach every day. It was amazing.

What is your claim to fame? I can sing the sexiest versions of “If You Want To Be A Badger” and “On Wisconsin” ever. It got me into Fundamentally Sound. I do requests for Valentine’s Day. Call me.

What do you do before a Fundamentally Sound performance to prepare? I watch other people get nervous and tell Coach Hines jokes.

Describe an average day in the life of Dan Conrad: Wake up too late, remember 80% of the way to class that my notebook is still at home, get through class, think about eating but don’t because marching band is in 2 hours, go to band and eat a bunch of rocks, eat for the first time around 7 PM, run to Fundamentally Sound rehearsal, start homework around 10 PM, finish homework around midnight, play Call of Duty for an hour, pray, go to bed. Repeat.
