Take six alluring, young women, give them each a killer set of pipes, a passion for good music, and regularly scheduled pizza breaks, and you have Realia, one of the most up-and-coming vocal bands from Boston. Formed in 1997 and ever-evolving, Realia primarily performs contemporary pop, funk and R&B, with a delectable power that is anything but your typical female a cappella. The premier national publication of a cappella has described Realia as "a group to watch, maybe the first all-womenıs group to become really big, like Rockapella and M-Pact!" Flattering, of course although weıve been trying to master that cool M-Pact! disco-arm-swing-thing, and it just aint happening. Still, a girl can dream.
Members: Kirsten Chidley, Emily Fisher, Val Hildebrant, Christy Maver, Evie Nagy, Courtney Wheaton
