Fifth Element

Male Duo

  • 2001 Chicago Best Original Song
    "Brand New Man" by Tom Anderson

    Fifth Element is a six-man vocal band from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Since their start in 1998, 5E has performed their eclectic mix of cover tunes and award-winning original material all over the Midwest, twice advancing to the semifinals of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. Their debut CD, "Plead the Fifth," was released in spring 2000. Fifth Element brings together the soaring vocal firepower of Nathan Cummings, the silky smoothness of Joe Turba, the vast stage experience of Brandon Richards, the thundering bass of Steve Clarke and Matthew Steiner, and what more than one ICCA judge has called "professional quality vocal percussion" from the vocal apparati of Tom Anderson, melding six young men into the sound, look, and feel of what some people insist on calling a "real band."
