What is your favorite a cappella track? “Ruby Falls” – Tufts Beelzebubs
What is the first a cappella song you have ever heard? Probably a song from The Roaches Christmas album.
What is your favorite Fundamentally Sound memory? Performing “High and Dry” at the 2009 ICCA’s.
What was the first song you performed with Fundamentally Sound? “This Love” by Maroon 5 at 2007 Cakes for Kids.
What previous singing experience do you have? 7 years of middle/high school choir, 6 years of middle/high school theater, occasional church singing gigs, 6 years of professional voice lessons.
Interesting fact: I speak conversational Finnish. Terve!
What is your claim to fame? My 15 minutes came in elementary school. My school closed down due to asbestos, and a TV crew came to my house to interview my parents. I didn’t know about the TV crew, though, so they videotaped me from behind, playing Roller Coaster Tycoon and singing to myself. It made the evening news! I’ll never be that famous again though… FML.
What do you do before a Fundamentally Sound performance to prepare? I whip my hair back and forth.
Describe an average day in the life of Patrick Smith: I wake up, emit extreme excellence from every orifice of my body at every waking moment (you should see it), then go to bed.
